GOP treasurer candidate Schwartz kicks off general election TV ad season

On Labor Day, GOP Treasurer contender Dan Schwartz has made a small TV buy with a couple of 15-second spots.

The ads are bio spots (below), with one strangely saying he will "defend the Millennium Scholarships" (the Legislature decides where that money goes) and will recover $50 million "stolen from our classrooms," a reference to this earlier misfire by him.

Schwartz recently was pummeled by Democrats for essentially not understanding the state general fund, which he said in a speech was "about $2 billion" (it's $6 billion over two years) and defined it as "our taxpayer dollars that are paid into Carson City which are in excess of the amount of money needed to run the government" (not close).

He's running against Controller Kim Wallin.
