Senate candidate John Fetterman released a new video on Wednesday featuring his community and its failing infrastructure. Mayor Fetterman blames Citizens United as well as the officials it produces for failing to invest properly in the community they are supposed to be representing.
In the sixty-second ad, Fetterman shows the three bridges that are currently closed in Braddock.
“What’s wrong with our political system?” Fetterman asks in the ad. “The money that anyone would have to spend to run a Senate race in this country could fix the three bridges in my community, and that to me is what’s perverse and crazy about this post-Citizens United world.”
“There’s a complete dislocation between the political establishment and the reality on the ground here,” Fetterman explains as he gives a tour in his car. “There isn’t anybody in Washington that lives in a community that’s facing issues like this.”
Yesterday, the Braddock Mayor also critiqued his opponents in an interview with the Inquirer editorial board.
Fetterman is running against former Chief of Staff to Gov. Wolf Katie McGinty and former Congressman Joe Sestak.
