The commercial is "designed to better acquaint voters" with Miller's background and policy initiatives, according to a statement from his spokesman.

Miller, who owns Phoenix Closures in Naperville, says in the commercial that he's running for Congress to fight high deficits, high taxes and low expectations.

"I may not be a slick politician, but I know a thing or two about what it takes to put Americans back to work," he said in the commercial.

Miller also posted an update this week on his website where he says his candidacy represents the GOP's "best chance to beat (U.S. Rep.) Bill Foster in the general election."

He said his campaign reported having $247,185 cash on hand at the end of 2013. The other Republicans vying for the seat -- state Rep. Darlene Senger of Naperville, Chris Balkema of Channahon and Ian Bayne of Aurora -- lagged far behind in fundraising. Senger had the second-largest campaign fund in the race with $64,095 cash on hand.
