for President, Inc.
Morris & Carrick
After NAFTA, I lost two good jobs, they closed the plants and the jobs
went to Mexico.
Barb Clayton: We've had to move three times, uproot our family and now we're worried we'll have to do it again.
Announcer: Democratic Leader Dick Gephardt led the fight against NAFTA. As President, Dick Gephardt will fight for American jobs. He knows when the rules are fair, American workers win.
Gephardt: I'm Dick Gephardt and I approved this message because I want to stop George Bush and fight for America's Middle Class.

|Notes and Observations: This ad addresses the trade issue through a personal story. A release accompanying the ad provided the following details: "Olin and Barb Clayton, originally from Illinois, moved to Des Moines in 2001 when the Firestone plant closed in Decatur, Ill. Barb continued to work as a nurse in Illinois and joined Olin in Des Moines in July 2003 when she was able to find a job. Olin was a forklift operator in the Firestone plant but currently serves as a "loaned executive" for the United Way, helping to raise money for the organization."|
