Wagner Launches Statewide TV Ad Buy
“Scott has spent the last 37 years as a business leader committed to improving companies and creating economic opportunity,” campaign spokesman Andrew Romeo said.
According to FEC filings, the ad will air in the Erie, Johnstown-Altoona, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia media markets.
The ad features Wagner speaking to the camera saying why he is running for Governor.
“I started this business from the ground up. Harrisburg insiders take care of themselves, not us. I’m running for governor to clean up their mess. My plan will junk the property tax, cut wasteful spending and put big government in the dumpster,” Wagner says.
The ad is likely aimed to help Wagner’s name become more recognized across the state ahead of state GOP caucus meetings, and the state GOP’s endorsement meeting this winter.
“Scott is showing he is committed to running an aggressive campaign and is in a strong financial position going into 2018,” Romeo said.
The Pennsylvania Democratic Party turned Wagner’s ‘Harrisburg insiders’ comment back on him, and went on the offensive against his position against the severance tax, and his support of Senate Bill 3.
“If Scott Wagner wants to take out the trash in Harrisburg, he should start by looking in the mirror. What ultimate Harrisburg insider Wagner is not telling you in his new ad is that he wants to let big oil and gas companies off the hook and go back to the days of Tom Corbett’s one billion dollar education cut while taking away a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions and gutting Medicaid and nursing home care for our seniors. He’s far too extreme for the people of Pennsylvania,” Pa. Dems Communications Director Beth Melena said.
