Franco Harris was part of the legendary 1970’s Pittsburgh Steelers that won four Super Bowls. Perhaps more importantly, at least when it comes to his ability to sway voters, he is a Penn State alumni.
Harris has filmed a TV ad for GOP State Supreme Court nominee Anne Covey. Despite the fact that Harris appears to be a Democrat, he did not appeal across party lines but rather provided testimony as a well-known Nittany Lion.
“The Penn State case was tough but Judge Anne Covey was tougher,” Harris states. “And she did what was right for all of us. I know Anne Covey, she’s honest, she has backbone, I’m a fan.”
With this spot, Covey is appealing to PSU alumni throughout the state who feel they and their alma mater was wronged by the NCAA punishments resulting from the Sandusky scandal.
“Get on our team!,” Harris and Covey exclaim in unison at the ad’s conclusion.
Covey is a GOP nominee for one of the three open seats on the State Supreme Court that are up for grabs on November 3rd.
