Wecht Releases Second TV Ad After Coveted Post-Gazette Endorsement (VIDEO)

Earlier today, Judge David Wecht, a candidate for Pennsylvania Supreme Court, released his second television commercial entitled “Who’s Watching?”

Much like his first ad, it highlighted Wecht’s five-point plan which aims to restore ethics and transparency to the Supreme Court.

“Running as the only candidate with a five-point plan to reform the Supreme Court, Judge Wecht, in his new TV commercial, highlights the stakes of this race. Who, in the end, will be most impacted by the results? Our next generation,” stated Mitch Kates, Campaign Manager for Wecht’s Supreme Court campaign.

“We believe this spot helps give voters another revealing look at Judge David Wecht, providing more information that can be used to make a well-informed choice on Election Day.”

Wecht received the coveted endorsement from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette earlier this week and included the newspaper’s emblem in today’s ad. The Post-Gazette endorsement noted, “Judge Wecht is a big believer in strong ethics and transparency, and the Post-Gazette was impressed by his commitment to curb judicial misconduct.”

The ad features Wecht’s four children (as opposed to his first spot, which included his famous father) who each stated a character trait that helps define their father’s five-point plan for a more ethical courts system. His message is that he is an upstanding citizen and father that his kids can look to for an ethical core.

“Because lawyers in the courtroom aren’t the only ones watching,” Wecht said in the video’s closing.

  1. How about not allowing the parties to nominate people who will be over 70 before their terms for judge end. These people tend to slip into ‘reverie’ and cause appeals due to them falling asleep.

  2. There are THREE (3) vacancies on the PA Supreme Court. Wecht might be a fine candidate for ONE but what about the other two?
    I watched the PA Supreme Court candidates’ forums on PCN and there needs to be more discussion about the others- one guy won’t make that much of a difference alone.

  3. Wecht should focus on doing his work. His backlog has always been huge. He’s lazy and arrogant.

  4. Anyone else think the three seconds at the end are really awkwardly filmed?
