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