LITTLE ROCK — Former U.S. Rep. Mike Ross turned to a familiar face for his first television ad in his race for Arkansas governor.

Gov. Mike Beebe, who is term-limited and cannot run for re-election this year, urges voters to support fellow Democrat Ross in the 30-second ad that began airing statewide Sunday.

"I've had the privilege of knowing Mike for 25 years, and I've watched him work," Beebe said in the ad. "Mike Ross has the common-sense leadership style that will make our economy work for everyone. His commitment to our children and schools is unwavering. And no one is more independent than Mike. So please join me in supporting Mike Ross for governor."

The TV ad makes no mention of the three Republicans vying for their party's nomination for governor: former U.S. Rep. Asa Hutchinson, businessman Curtis Coleman and state Rep. Debra Hobbs. Beebe defeated Hutchinson in the 2006 election.

Ross has no announced opponent for the Democratic primary. Lt. Gov. Bill Halter had been in the race, but quit at the end of July.

Also in the 30-second ad ends with Beebe saying "no one is more independent than Mike." BULL! Mike Ross independent?

No he is not, or he would not be running, after he said he would be retiring from politics. Course ole Mike Beebe seen that coming.

However, Mike Ross was dominated by Miss dominatrix Nancy Pelosi. Just look at his voting for Majority and Minority speaker of the House. Oh I know he or John Brummett will say that she was the only option, that is if one wished to protect one's political career, which gives cause to term limits for Congress
