HELENA — Republican Rick Hill’s gubernatorial campaign launched its first television ad Monday on stations across the state.

Titled “Get the Job Done,” the 30-second ad shows Hill out at a pole-and-post company, south of Helena in Jefferson County. Here’s a transcript of the ad:

Hill says: “Montana needs more jobs, and better jobs.”

The announcer says: “Conservative businessman Rick Hill.”

Hill says: “It’s not so complicated. Reduce regulations. Prioritize spending. And get government out of the way, so businesses like this can grow.”

The announcer says: “Successful businessman, tested conservative. Rick Hill’s met a payroll. Created jobs. And reduced government, with a proven business approach.”

Hill says: “Less government, lower taxes, more jobs. Give us a shot. We’ll get the job done.”

Hill’s campaign declined to say how much the television ad buy cost and how long it is running.

While the ad cites Hill’s background as a businessman, it makes no mention of that he was elected to the U.S. House and served there for four years, from 1997-2001.

Two other Republicans — Neil Livingstone of Helena and former state Sen. Corey Stapleton of Billings — also are have TV ads running now.

Hill, Livingstone and Stapleton are among the seven Republicans seeking their party’s nomination for governor in the June 5 primary, while two Democrats are vying for their party’s nomination.
