Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle released a new campaign ad on Wednesday that is his first to run statewide on broadcast, cable and satellite.

The ad, entitled "Difference," debuted at 10 am. The ad, according to the campaign, is designed to "highlight Cagle's partnership with Gov. Deal which has led to unprecedented economic growth for Georgia.

"This includes adding 40,000 new businesses and growing 600,000 jobs while cutting income taxes by $5.7 billion and earning the distinction of being the best state in the nation for business."

The advertisement is part of a $4.5 million media buy which will allow Cagle's campaign to advertise non-stop through the May 22 primary. "Difference" will be broadcast across the Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Chattanooga, Columbus, Jacksonville, Macon, Savannah, and Tallahassee media markets.
