(Undated) -- The candidates for state Attorney General are hitting the airwaves with campaigm ads, less than two weeks before the election.

Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed, the Republican candidate, has begun a statewide broadcast of a 30-second commercial.

In it, Freed describes himself as "a tough, no-nonsense prosecutor" with 15 years' experience.

He says voters should care about his track record because, if elected, he would be responsible for the safety of their families.

Democratic nominee Kathleen Kane put up her first TV commercial yesterday.

In it, she calls herself "a prosecutor, not a politician" and says she'll "clean up the corruption in Harrisburg."

Also seeking the office is Libertarian candidate Maraky Roger, a York lawyer.
