David Jolly “Two Reasons” digital spot features mom, aunt

in Uncategorized by

David Jolly’s new digital ad features two of the most prominent people in his life — mother Judith Jolly, and aunt, Carol Mathews, who are both life-long Pinellas County residents.

“Two Reasons” is the latest 30-second digital spot to show how “personal” the issue of Social Security is to Jolly, and why he is opposed to Obamacare, which the ad claims cuts $716 billion from the Medicare system.

“Alex Sink and the DCCC have taken mistruths about my stance on Social Security and Medicare and turned these misrepresentations into negative attack ads that are intentionally misleading voters,” Jolly said in a statement Monday.

“Our seniors and voters deserve better than this and I want to set the record straight about where I stand on these critical issues. If elected, I will work to guarantee Social Security and Medicare benefits for our seniors who deserve that we honor these benefits as a promise – one that we will keep.”

The ad attacks Democrat Alex Sink for “frightening” seniors with “false claims” about Jolly’s stance on Social Security entitlements, ads “even the media condemns.”

Calling Social Security a “debt we owe our seniors,” Jolly continues his vow to fight against Obamacare and stand “with them and all Pinellas.”

“He learned that from Bill Young,” Judith Jolly said.

The video is now available on YouTube.
