Today, Katie McGinty released her TV first ad of the Senate Democratic primary campaign.
The thirty-second spot was titled “It’s Your Turn” and focused on the economy.
“The U.S. has added 14 million new jobs since the Great Recession – a good start,” the candidate began. “But too many families see the special interests gaining the upper hand in Washington, while paychecks don’t go far enough.”
McGinty went on to pledge to protect Social Security and make college more affordable.
“For too long Pennsylvania middle class families have gotten the short end of the stick,” said Sabrina Singh, Communications Director. “As the ninth of ten children and a mother of three daughters, Katie is fighting to ensure that everyone has a fair shot at the American Dream. For women who are paid twenty percent less than their male counterparts – it’s your turn to be paid fairly. For men and women working low-wage jobs struggling to put food on the table – it’s your turn to get ahead. For our families burdened with student loans – it’s your turn for a fair shot.”
McGinty is running against Braddock Mayor John Fetterman and former Congressman Joe Sestak in the Senate Democratic primary set for April 26th.
The commercial comes after the Democratic state committee last weekend, where McGinty scored a majority of support but did not reach the two-thirds threshold for an endorsement. That morning we spoke with McGinty about renewable energy, the Supreme Court, trade and foreign policy.
