Late Wednesday evening, an email arrived in this reporter’s inbox.

“Help me out here Big guy!” wrote Dale Peterson, the gun-toting, horse-riding Republican who is running again for office in Alabama.

The 68-year-old from Shelby County — whose unorthodox campaign videos for agriculture commissioner were among the most watched of 2010 — is back on his horse again angling for votes. And he’s releasing a new video with a familiar theme.

Though he lost his campaign in 2010 for “ag commish” and has had some legal issues since, Peterson is locked in a run-off on July 15 for the Republican nomination for state auditor.

Here is his latest ad – a 30 second video of him riding his horse to western music:

Asked if the ad will run on television, Peterson told The Daily Caller: “Yep…..but only limited.”

“The establishment will not give me any money,” he said. “I really could use some help in that category. You know anybody who could help?”
