NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander is returning to familiar themes touting his long political career in Tennessee in what his campaign is calling the "closing TV ad" of his race against Democratic challenger Gordon Ball.

Alexander, a former governor who also ran for president twice, is seeking a third Senate term. His first ads of the general election campaign featured a departure from the incumbent's usual feel-good message in attacking Ball as a "slick-talking personal injury lawyer" beholden to Democratic President Barack Obama's agenda.

In the latest ad, Alexander touts his successes as governor like bringing the auto industry to Tennessee and stresses the senior role he would play if Republicans pick up enough seats to gain a majority in the Senate.
