Republican state Rep. Marty Seifert's gubernatorial campaign has a new video out that appears directed at potential Republican caucus-goers. Most of the video features Seifert talking into the camera with b-roll shots from the campaign trail interspersed throughout. A somewhat-stereotypical-but-meant-to-be-inspirational brass instrumental track runs in the background.

Seemingly, there isn't a way to embed the video, but you can watch it on Seifert's website.

Some stray observations after the jump.
