Boockvar Releases First Campaign Ad (Watch Video)
Kathy Boockvar released a $38k cable ad buy today highlighting the changes she plans to bring to Washington.
The Democratic candidate for PA-8’s message and tone was positive, with clips of her family, workplace and community.
Narrating the 32-second ad, she explains what sort of change she would bring if elected to Congress.
“It’s just common sense – work together, make smart decisions and improve our bottom line,” Boockvar says in the ad.
“That’s what I’ve done at work, as a mediator, and at home, as a wife and mother. And it’s what I’ll do in Washington. I’ll fight to balance our budget and tackle the debt by cutting waste and closing loopholes for corporations that outsource jobs. I’ll use smart incentives to encourage job growth and work to make college more affordable.”
In a statement, Fitzpatrick Campaign Manager Faith Bender said the Congressman will continue to fight for more jobs and less spending, as well as strengthen Social Security and Medicare.
Bender also knocked Boockvar as “radical,” saying the true nature of her policies would be revealed in her ads.
“What Kathy Boockvar should be explaining in her ads is why she and radicals in Washington are supporting a government takeover of healthcare that will cut Medicare by over $700 billion. Kathy and Nancy Pelosi’s plan also contains $1 trillion in job destroying tax hikes. Kathy Boockvar needs to explain in her ads why she wants to harm small businesses, job creators and hurt our seniors,” said Bender.
Fitzpatrick has plans for a $1 million ad buy for network and cable beginning in mid-September, also.
It’s the first positive campaign ad we’ve seen in the race for PA-8.
