Mango Launches First TV Ads of Campaign

Republican Gubernatorial candidate Paul Mango’s campaign announced its first two ads of the elections, titled ‘Ready to Serve’ and ‘Opposites.’  

‘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.

You can view the ads below.

  1. As an organizer of the Mansfield PA Tea Party Group, I, Ida M Temple, cordially invite you to a town hall forum allow citizens to learn more about you. The date is open and at your convenience. It will be held at the Mansfield University. Thank you for your service.

  2. Classic Brabender, and that sucks for Paul Mango. A lack of seriousness that comes from being too Hollywood-y and “over-produced”, coupled with the trademark over-the-top machismo that misfires. While the snarly guitar riff isn’t as bad as some of John’s other stuff, like the monster truck from the Corbett ads, this is still a waste of money.

  3. This prick never voted. He can wrap himself in the Flag all he wants, but duty doesn’t end when the commission does. Oorah

  4. has a lot of good information and I found that his Facebook page has a lively comment section. I read the plan he wrote about Restoring PA & was impressed. He seems like a genuinely good guy.

  5. I find it odd that a guy who wants to serve the people, won’t even let them comment on his YouTube videos.
