U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) announced Wednesday his campaign released its third TV ad in his re-election bid to Alabama's first congressional district.

Carl has been on the airwaves since Thanksgiving and has completed the introduction phase of the campaign as he now moves on to the messaging phase.

Carl campaign manager Zach Weidlich said, "Jerry Carl is fighting to finish Trump's wall, stop drugs from pouring into our country, and is taking Joe Biden to task for the immigration crisis."

He added, "It continues showing how Carl is a workhorse on conservative policy that will turn our country around."

While Carl touched on border security in his previous ad, his new one, entitled "Good Neighbor," zeroed in on the issue.

The ad pushed home Carl's message of how he has fought to pass the "toughest border bill in history," to add more border patrol agents, and to stop the drugs flowing across the southern border.

"Biden doesn't get it, but we've got to get it done," Carl said.

Weidlich told 1819 News that this would be a substantial media buy in addition to the previous media buys. "Good Neighbor" may be seen across digital, cable and broadcast platforms.

Alabama's first congressional district's primary may be one of the toughest in the state. The race pits two sitting members of Congress against each other for the Republican primary. U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) announced in October he is running in the first district after the federal courts drew him out of the second congressional district he currently represents.

The Alabama Republican primary election is scheduled for March 5.
