CARY, N.C., Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to numerous queries and enthusiastic feedback, the Lawson for Congress campaign confirms that its latest radio and TV ad is indeed narrated by actor Morgan Freeman.  The ad with Freeman's distinctive voice, titled, "What is David Price Afraid Of?" can be viewed at

The ad addresses how 22-year incumbent David Price, who votes with Nancy Pelosi more than any other Congressman, has gone on the attack with his quarter-million dollar TV ad campaign instead of standing behind his voting record of bailouts and increased deficit spending.  The Freeman-narrated Lawson ad is a stark contrast to the Price campaign's current TV ad, which uses exaggerations, lies and distortions in attempt to shock voters, rather than talking about the issues.

Lawson was inspired by Mr. Freeman explaining the importance of our founding documents in his narration of a video about the Declaration of Independence and the campaign jumped at the opportunity to work with him. (seen here at

"Even though David Price is fighting against us with his distortionary ads, we must remember that we are fighting for the ideals that make this country great," said B.J. Lawson. "This election is about advancing a federal government that lives up to the eternal ideals of our Declaration of Independence – that every American individual has the God-given, inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

"Clearly David Price's 22 years of big-government policies are hurting, especially in the private sector where real jobs are created," Lawson continued.  "Because his voting record is nothing to brag about, all he can do is run attack ads. Price's long career as a politician has put him out of touch with the needs of the American people.

"Now what's keeping him up at night is a quarter-million dollar attempt to be re-elected in a year when millions of regular people like me are asking tough questions of their representatives in Washington," Lawson concluded.

"Barbara Streisand wouldn't do it this, but Morgan Freeman doesn't have a problem cutting ads against Washington insiders or he wouldn't do it," said Lawson for Congress Campaign Manager Martin Avila. "People shouldn't be so shocked that someone like Mr. Freeman would think outside of the left-right red vs. blue dynamic. This election IS about regular people asking basic questions."

B.J. Lawson is a Constitutional conservative, medical doctor and small businessman running against 22-year incumbent David Price, who votes with Nancy Pelosi more than any other congressman.
