Republican candidate Brian Fitzpatrick released his first web ad today.
The political new-comer (and younger brother of incumbent Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick) doesn’t address a single issue or policy in his five and a half minute video.
Instead, he aims to introduce himself to voters and prove that while he’s coming from California, he is very familiar with Bucks County.
In fact, the spot features Fitzpatrick driving around his hometown of Levittown (built by the legendary “King of Suburbia” Bill Levitt).
“I’ve always told everybody that I’ve met throughout my life that I can’t think of a better place to grow up than Levittown,” he states at the beginning. “Levittown values are blue-collar values.”
Fitzpatrick even goes as far as to take the viewer to his Little League field and recount how his cheekbone was broken.
The video ends at the Fitzpatrick family home.
“Respect people more and judge people less, those are the values we grew up with,” he concludes.
Fitzpatrick is running against former Bucks County Commissioner Andrew Warren and neuropsychologist Marc Duome in the April 26th GOP primary.
The 8th Congressional District represents all of Bucks County as well as parts of upper Montgomery County.
What i do not understood is actually how you’re not actually much more well-liked than you might be right now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus significantly relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it’s one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. Always maintain it up!
I precisely desired to appreciate you yet again. I do not know what I would’ve achieved without those ideas shown by you over this situation. It was a real intimidating problem in my view, nevertheless encountering the well-written avenue you handled the issue forced me to leap with fulfillment. I’m just thankful for your advice and thus believe you are aware of a great job your are doing training men and women with the aid of your website. I am sure you’ve never come across all of us.
I’m a lifelong Republican. Fitzpatrick hasn’t shown his face in PA in years. He is a disconnected carpetbagger who can’t serve the people of this district because he is not one of them. In his five minute intro video he spends more time talking about getting hit in the face with a baseball in 1986 and how it was a “life-changing” event than he does about any single issue impacting the voters of our district. He comes off as an angry white man longing for his glory days in Catholic school.
**Brian: the world has changed and its time to move on. We have serious problems and you have no solutions or strategies to solve them. I wish you well in whatever you choose to do with your life, but representing me in Congress is something I cannot let happen and I will not be voting for you .
Greetings from California! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, amazing blog!
Hey Brian, try and talk about the issues facing this country. I just spoke with Marc Duome and now know exactly what he stands for. I already understand Levittown – I need to understand you.

why does he need an ad to introduce him? cant his brother just do it?
Great Ad and I might support him down the road and for I already supported someone right now in the race for this congressional seat.
A terrorism/crime fighter Fitzpatrick from lower Bucks who’s never been in politics versus an out of touch career politician white-shoe lawyer. Fitzpatrick by 5-10 points, easy.
Looking forward to seeing Steve showing us his home in New Jersey. “Jersey Values”
Was he living in California until recently?
I have no idea what he stands for, what he’s done, what he plans to do in Congress, but luckily the word “FITZPATRICK” was in the bottom corner so I can be brainwashed into thinking he’s the older brother.
It is no problem for him to be an unknown; just keep saying his last name and people will think he is his brother. That’s how “hereditary” politics works.
He could have just said “L town represent” and saved 5 minutes.
