Michigan Political Faux Pas of the Day - An Advertisement made in Chicago, MI

Current Democrat speaker of the House, and candidate for Governor Andy Dillon just released an advertisement touting his support for a "Hire Michigan First" law.

The company used to produce the ad? From Chicago.

Last time we checked, Chicago was not (thankfully) located within the territory of the State of Michigan. That the company from Chicago is owned by David Axelrod, one of Obama's key advisers probably doesn't help Mr. Dillon much either.

The Detroit News: Andy Dillon's 'hire Michigan first' gov ad is work of Chicago firm
Chris DeWitt, a Democratic political consultant, said asking why the Dillon campaign didn't hire a Michigan company to produce an ad about hiring state workers "is a very legitimate question."
Yep, the Dillon campaign certainly didn't think this decision through.
