Sean Parnell, the GOP challenger for the 17th Congressional District, is on TV with a new positive spot that compares decisions he made serving in the military to choices he faces as a father of a daughter.
“After Afghanistan, I wrote a book called Outlaw Platoon,” Parnell says to camera at the beginning of the 30 second ad titled “Emma.”
“I thought I was a tough guy who made tough choices, but then, I had a daughter,” Parnell continued. “Now, she makes the tough choices.”
The ad continues to show his daughter deciding on a dress and Parnell combing his daughter’s hair.
“My kids are my world,” Parnell continues. “I lay awake at night trying to make sure I do right by my daughter and my sons so they can have the great country I inherited.”
“I’m Sean Parnell, I approve this message,” Parnell says.
“And I do too, so we’re done,” his daughter, Emma says at the conclusion of the 30 second spot.
Rep. Conor Lamb’s (D-Allegheny) campaign declined to comment on the ad.
