Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional Eric Ding released his first television ad with election day three weeks away. He is to challenge incumbent Republican Congressman Scott Perry.
Ding’s first ad tells the story of his two-year investigation that analyzed the effects of COX-2 inhibitor drugs. He found that products such as Vioxx caused kidney damage and heart arrhythmia, and that the drug maker was aware of these risks and did not alert the public. These drugs were eventually pulled from the market, due in part to Ding’s research.
“I have spent my public health career fighting against corrupt drug companies that put profit over people.” said Ding. “I will take that fight to Washington to tackle the most pressing public health issues facing our country.”
“I spent my career fighting to protect families, and right now we need to fight Donald Trump for all our families,” Ding says in the ad.
Ding is running against George Scott, Robert Howe, Shavonnia Corbin-Johnson in the primary.
