Ad Watch: Casey, McCormick Unveil First TV Spots

Bob Casey, Dave McCormick

In what certainly will be the first of many, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. and Republican challenger Dave McCormick both hit the airwaves with campaign ads this week.

Casey’s spot – entitled “Stench” – highlights the three-term Senator’s fight to pass the PACT Act to deliver for veterans across Pennsylvania. According to AdImpact, the campaign placed his first ad reservations yesterday, totaling $213,000.



Chad Baer: On the frontlines of the fight against terrorism, the stench never left.

The haze in the air, you could smell it and taste it.

Toxic exposure.

Some vets died and I still have trouble breathing.

But when we got home, the VA denied us care.

Bob Casey changed that.

Bob Casey worked with Republicans and Democrats to pass the burn pits bill into law.

Now, we get the benefits we’ve earned.

I’m grateful Bob Casey has our back.

Senator Casey: I’m Bob Casey, and I’m proud to approve this message.


McCormick’s 30-second spot – “Wrestling” – highlights the lessons learned from growing up wrestling in Pennsylvania. According to AdImpact, McCormick and the NRSC have reserved $659K so far with ads running through the week.


McCormick: Six minutes. It’s all you get. Sometimes it’s all you can take.

On the wrestling mat, there’s no place to hide.

I’m Dave McCormick.

Pennsylvania wrestling taught me to do the hard thing.

Hard work. Hard choices. The Pennsylvania way.

That’s not what we get from Washington.

The career politicians don’t do the hard work.

They’re selfish and soft.

I’m running for the Senate to make the hard calls.

That’s why I approve this message.


Both are fundraising off the ads.

Casey wrote that “With the Senate majority hinging on PA, getting our ads on the air is critical to fighting back and sharing my message with Pennsylvanians — but ads are expensive, so we need to step up our fundraising to keep them running.

“Without your grassroots support, we could miss the chance to reach crucial swing voters, and in a battleground race like this one, that could be the difference between winning and losing.”

McCormick’s clarion call says, “I am a girl dad, husband, job creator, combat veteran and seventh-generation Pennsylvanian who will deliver REAL results to spark America’s renewal.
But I can’t win this fight alone.

“Democrats only hold the Senate Majority by ONE SEAT and this is already being called one of the most competitive and most expensive Senate races in the country.

  1. Dave McComick, i have mucj faith in you will do what you say, because me and my family are voting for you! If not i can be your wrost person to be against. Casey is no good! I was friends with his father s good man! But jis son and I was supposed to speak at an Organ Donor Family honoring event (Family Donor Medal)! He never joined me on the dasis but instead canceled and sent his brother Patrick in his place. Where we were speaking was in his hometown of Scranton!

  2. “McCormick is more Toomey than he is MAGA. I do know that he was with a company that managed money for communist China, and he is absolutely the candidate of special interests and globalists and the Washington establishment.”
