AUSTIN — Former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert is taking a swipe at his opponents.

The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate started airing a new ad Thursday.

Leppert tells voters that lawyers and career politicians can't be trusted to go to Washington and create jobs.

He faces Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, former Texas solicitor general Ted Cruz and Texas Railroad Commission chairwoman Elizabeth Ames Jones in the Republican primary race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

Still more than six months until the March primary, the race to replace Hutchison is living up to expectations that it will be a high-dollar, lively affair.
