‘Ready to Serve’ focuses on Mango’s Army service from West Point to the 82nd Airborne division. ‘Opposites’ highlights differences between Mango’s and Governor Tom Wolf’s economic plans.
The ads will run on cable in the Pittsburgh and Johnstown-Altoona media markets and online. The ads will likely move into the eastern media markets in the coming weeks.
These kinds of ads will help Mango build name recognition ahead of the Republican Party’s Fall meeting next week, and it’s Winter endorsement meeting early next year.
Neither ad makes any mention of any Republicans running in the race for Governor, most notably state Senator Scott Wagner (R-York).
Update: The Pennsylvania Democratic Party responded to ‘Opposites’ claiming Mango is a Harrisburg insider.
“There’s a lot Paul Mango’s not telling you in his new ads. Like the fact that he’s proposing to slash education and classroom learning, give special tax breaks to big corporations and the wealthy, and cut Medicaid for seniors in nursing homes. Paul Mango’s ads might be new, but he’s playing the same tune that Harrisburg’s been dancing to for decades, and it’s harmful to Pennsylvania families,” Pa. Dems spokesperson Beth Melena said in an email.
