Joyce Launches Ad in PA-13 Republican Primary

Dr. John Joyce is introducing himself to voters in the 13th Congressional district with his first ad in the Republican primary.  

“‘Keeping His Word’ will reaffirm what voters across central Pennsylvania already know – Dr. Joyce is ready to serve us on a new level,” Joyce’s campaign manager Adam Breneman said.  

The 30-second ad features Joyce’s wife, Dr. Alice Joyce, saying “unlike career politicians John keeps his word.”  

“That’s why I know he’ll protect social security and medicare, and lower taxes for our families,” she continues.

The ad is airing on network TV in the Johnstown-Altoona market, and on cable district wide and will likely run through election day.  For a first time candidate, an ad introducing them to voters ahead of the primary can help, especially with a state Senator and state Representative in the field.

You can view the ad below.

    I’m concerned with who’s funding all these ad space. Lobbyists from medical & pharmaceutical industry?? There are 8 candidates in the primary. I’ve met two. And only one comes across as sincere and passionate about all of central PA – Doug Mastriano.

    This guy is Shuster’s hand-picked replacement. His son Sean was Shuster’s campaign manager for years and now Shuster is funding this campaign with his leftover war chest. Joyce is trying to paint himself as an outsider but he’s absolutely not.

  3. Pragmatist says:

    I like his campaign. He does not insult educators, switch parties and is not mean spirited.

  4. Ry says:

    I have a feeling Joyce runs away with this race by 5-10%. Seems like a great guy.

  5. Conewago says:

    Why would I vote for a man whose campaign consultant abandoned PSU football?

    We are Penn State, NOT “We are …. UMass”

    This district is an incoherent mess now, with faded industrial hack politicians in the Johnstown and west areas, faded farm belt hack politicians in the middle, and monotonous suburban cranks in the east.

    1. Nathan says:

      Seriously? Adam Brenneman helped save Penn state football.

    2. Deb says:

      Abandon PSU, he was always hurt even back at Cedar Cliff High

  6. Shelley Eppard says:

    How can he claim that he won’t be swayed by special interests when his son is a DC lobbyist?

      Wow good point. Also if shuster is bought and paid and this guy is owned by shuster. Doesn’t that mean that by the transitive property of buying politicians this guy is also bought and paid for.

  7. Michael says:

    I have known Dr John and Dr Alice Joyce all my life. They are two of the most selfless people I have ever met. Truly have servants hearts. I will volunteer for Johns Campaign any day. What an exciting time for Central PA to have a new voice in Washington.

    1. John says:

      Their son works for Tony Podestra. Really don’t need that in our district.

  8. Keith R Larrimore says:

    Dr.John is not a career politician and not a party jumper like two of his opponents. His word is gold! GOP members must get out and vote for Dr.John Joyce! 🏅

  9. PBMDO says:

    Our country has swayed far from our founding fathers vision of our homeland. Dr. Joyce will bring back the conservative values espoused by the constitution.

  10. LPalmer says:

    what a great ad! We need someone like Dr. Joyce that isn’t the same ole same ole politician, and someone who is born and raised and loves our district. He has my vote!
