U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga), who is running for U.S. Senate in 2014, released a campaign ad today voicing his opposition to a congressional budget deal announced on Wednesday.

The text of the ad is as follows:

"There they go again, the politicians in Washington have a new plan that spends more, borrows more, and taxes more. And get this: they still want us to keep paying for Obamacare. Washington's budget deal is bad news for Georgia families and it's time we fight back.

"Dr. Paul Broun will say no to big spending budgets, no to debt ceiling increases, no to funding Obamacare. In fact, Dr. Broun has introduced more targeted spending cuts than any other member of Congress and he's proposed the toughest balanced budget amendment we've ever seen.

"Other candidates talk about cutting spending; Dr. Broun has actually done it. That's the difference. Conservative Republican Paul Broun for U.S. Senate."

Broun is one of just a handful of congressmen to quickly oppose the Senate Budget Committee chairman Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and House Budget Committee chairman Representative Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) budget deal. They announced their agreement on Wednesday afternoon.

(UPDATE: The House passed the budget 332-94, with Broun voting against it.)

Broun, who currently represents Georgia's tenth congressional district, is running to replace retiring Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga) in the upper chamber of U.S. Congress.

The primary season on the Republican side should be very competitive. From the declared Republican candidates, Broun's competition includes:

· patent attorney Art Gardner,

· U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga-11),

· conservative political activist Derrick Grayson,

· former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel,

· U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga-01),

· Georgia Ports Authority board member David Perdue ( who is also cousin of former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue),

· businessman, President of the Federation of Korean Associations, and former deputy sheriff Eugene Yu.

The primary will be held on Tuesday May 20, 2014, and the almost certain run off - Tuesday July 22, 2014.
