And the readers were right – State Senator Mike Stack will be the first lieutenant governor candidate on television.
His buy begins on Tuesday, May 6 in Pittsburgh with 2000 gross rating points, and then expands into the Philadelphia, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Harrisburg markets on Thursday, May 8 at the 1000 GRP level. He will stay up through May 20.
The high-quality ad begins with Stack talking about his grandfather who served in Congress during the passage of the first minimum wage and other progressive pieces of legislation.
“A right wing group gave me a 0 rating because i want to tax millionaires and gas drillers to help fund public education. I sponsored marriage equality, a ban on assault weapons and I’ll always protect women’s rights,” Stack says. “I’m Mike Stack and I believe our Democratic values are worth fighting for.”
This 30-second spot will run in each media market, and the campaign is considering another ad to run in select markets.
For the Democratic nomination, Stack faces Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith, former Congressman Mark Critz, State Rep. Brandon Neuman and Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski.
