One week from the primary and we have a television ad in the Democratic primary for Superior Court.
Beth Tarasi, an attorney from Western Pennsylvania, released her first television ad in the three candidate race in the Democratic primary for Superior Court.
Tarasi’s 30 second ad, Ready, highlights her courtroom experience as proof she is best suited to serve on the court.
“Beth Tarasi has the experience we need in our next Superior Court judge,” the voiceover says to begin the spot. “With 28 years of courtroom experience, Beth has argued cases before Pennsylvania’s Superior and Supreme Courts.”
The ad goes on to detail her role in various cases including 3 Mile Island and the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill.
Tarasi is going up against Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Dan McCaffrey, brother of former state Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery, and former Allegheny County Councilwoman Amanda Green-Hawkins in the primary.
The Pennsylvania Democratic Party endorsed McCaffery and Green-Hawkins at their most recent state committee meeting.
Tarasi’s campaign said the ad is broadcasting in multiple markets, although they did not specify what specific markets.
