Peters Launches TV Ad in PA-8 Primary

Republican Congressional candidate Joe Peters launched his first TV ad of the primary, premiering it one week out from the primary.

In the ad, Peters touts his hometown roots and his time as a prosecutor.  

“As a former cop and prosecutor, I stared down the Philadelphia mob and we won, so I’m not going to be afraid of the corruption and the Swamp in Washington,” Peters says in the ad.  

The 30-second ad, titled “Hometown,” began airing Tuesday on broadcast and cable in the district that includes Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, and Wayne counties.  

Peters is running against John Chrin and Robert Kuniegel in the primary to challenge Democratic Congressman Matt Cartwright.

  1. So, in the best pick up target the Republicans have, their candidates are either a several time electoral loser with no money, a millionaire from New Jersey who doesn’t even live in the district, and a crazy old dude. GOOD LUCK!

  2. This is a non starter race. Peters will have an uphill battle especially with Trump’s antics in the mix. This is not a good year to be running in a Dem district as a Republican.

      1. It’s going to be a real uphill battle for Peters considering he is going to be in last place in 3 way primary next week. His ad buy was small because his campaign has no money.

      2. I think Trump is more popular in the 8th Congressional District than Nancy Pelosi is. Her announcement that that she wants to be Speaker again does not help Democrats running CD’s that Trump carried. She is going to cost the Democrats some seats that would win without her being the picture. The San Francisco/NYC wing of the Democratic party does not play well in the heartland Chuck Schumer going to cost the Party some winnable seats in the Senate for the same reason. The Democrats should be happy though that Mitch McConnell is disliked as much as Schumer
