WASHINGTON (CNN) - Promising to get the "economy moving again," Connecticut Republican Senate hopeful Tom Foley released his first television ad Wednesday.

The ad entitled "Cycle", a referrence to what Foley calls a "vicious cycle" of contributions and political favors flowing between special interest groups and politicians, says longtime Connecticut Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd is "one of the worst offenders."

Suggesting that Connecticut does not need another career politician, in the 30-second spot, Foley highlights his 25 years as a businessman.

The Foley campaign would not release details about the amount of ad dollars supporting "Cycle," but the campaign tells CNN the new ad is running statewide.

Foley, the former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland, is one of 7 Republican candidates vying for Dodd's seat.

The Connecticut primary will take place August 10.
