PHL-15: Williams to Receive Advertising Boost From Outside Group (VIDEO)
First Jim Kenney and now Anthony Williams.
Now, Williams will be getting a “substantial” amount of TV advertisements paid for him by the “independent expenditure group” American Cities, according to Dave Davies of Newsworks. Three sources familiar with the ad buy say it costs in excess of $500,000.
The article also notes that $500,000 is more than the campaign had on hand in its last financial filing, on December 31st of last year.
The Williams campaign premiered their first official campaign commercial this week. Both spots emphasize his family lineage, particularly his popular late father, former State Senator Hardy Williams.
