PA-6: Trivedi Goes After Costello in New Ad (VIDEO)

With just less than two weeks until Election Day, this is not the time to pull punches and Manan Trivedi definitely didn’t in his newest ad.

The half-positive, half-negative commercial seeks to contrast the career and record of Trivedi and his Republican opponent Ryan Costello. The thirty-second spot, titled “Serve”, accomplishes this by following a linear (and literal) timeline.

“In 2001, Dr. Manan Trivedi joined the Marines,” the narrator states. “Ryan Costello went into politics.”

“Trivedi served as a battlefield surgeon in Iraq, Costello served by voting to raise his own pay,” the ad continues. “And while Trivedi cared for patients in Pennsylvania, Costello gave millions in government contracts to his campaign contributors. Even as he cut funding for child abuse prevention.”

“In Congress, only Trivedi will do what’s right for you,” the narrator concludes.

Besides the obvious goal of contrasting the career, and even character, of both candidates the commercial also subtly seeks to counter some of the Costello campaign’s attacks.

For example, the spot neglects to mention Trivedi’s two previous runs in 2010 and 2012, painting Costello as the career politician. It also deliberatively points out that the Democrat practices in Pennsylvania, implicitly answering his opponent’s charge that he mostly lives and works in Washington D.C.

Trivedi and Costello are fighting for the 6th congressional district, a seat left vacant by the retirement of Rep. Jim Gerlach. PA-6 consists of parts of Berks, Chester, Lebanon and Montgomery counties.

  1. Your “service” to our country is a joke Mr. Trivedi! I served to protect our Bill of Rights and Constitution. Take your “progressive” Stalinist views and shove it!! Hope Costello wins. The last thing this country needs is a collective cluster of lapdogs, stooges, and rubber-stamps for Maobama/Bloomberg/Soros.
