PA1 Ad: Finello Boosts Biden Endorsement

Embracing the endorsement. 

Christina Finello, the Democratic challenger for the 1st Congressional District, is on television with a new ad that features former Vice President Joe Biden promoting her candidacy for the Bucks County seat against Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Bucks). 

“Christina – our next Congresswoman, I’m looking forward to serving with you kid,” Biden says at the beginning of the 30 second spot titled, “Grit.” “I’m looking forward to serving with you.” 

“You’ve got the grit, toughness and the smarts to get this done,” Biden continues. “Let’s make sure when we win back the White House we send along Christina, because she’s gonna fight like hell for the families of Bucks County, for hard working folks.”

The clip of Biden used in the ad was from a rally that the former VP led in Bucks County last Saturday. 

The Fitzpatrick campaign did not respond with a comment to the ad. 

This latest ad is the fifth TV spot from the Finello campaign during the general election, although this is the first ad that touts being endorsed by Biden. Other previous spots include Finello boosting her middle class background, while linking Fitzpatrick to President Donald Trump in the suburban Philadelphia district.

Fitzpatrick’s ads in the race have promoted a bevy of bipartisan endorsements

Fitzpatrick, who is currently serving his second term in Congress in a district that narrowly went to Sec. Hillary Clinton in 2016, bested Democrat Scott Wallace by just over 2.5 points in 2018. 

Several ratings outlets currently have the PA1 race as Leans Republican.

  1. Around 2 weeks ago I saw a poll that had Biden up 13 in PA-01. If that margin holds, Finello can eke out a win.
