Gwen Graham campaign releases new ad — “Succeed”

in Uncategorized by

Today, Gwen Graham’s campaign released a new TV ad entitled “Succeed,” highlighting how Graham “will bring the North Florida Way back to Congress in order to get Washington focused on priorities that will help North Floridians succeed – like job growth, economic development, education and protecting vital programs that our seniors have earned.,” reads a release

“I know neither Republicans nor Democrats are right 99 percent of the time. We need to be working together and developing the right policies – policies that allow everybody to succeed,” says Graham in the new ad.

The ad includes testimonials from North Florida voters who are supporting Gwen because of her commitment to bringing compromise back to Congress. “We need to send somebody to Congress who cares about the people,” says one resident of Monticello. “Gwen really understands North Florida,” recounted another.

The ads begins airing the week after the announcement of a new poll showing Gwen with a two point lead over Congressman Southerland and after new pre-primary finance reports show Gwen outraising Southerland nearly two-to-one with $212,000 raised to Southerland’s $107,000.

Republicans were quick to dismiss Graham’s new ad

“Gwen Graham talks a lot about developing the ‘right policies’ in Congress, but Gwen is neglecting to tell North Florida families that her policies are Nancy Pelosi’s policies,” said the NRCC’s Katie Prill. “If Gwen is sent to Washington she will only focus on furthering Nancy Pelosi’s liberal agenda. Why else would Pelosi be funding her entire campaign?”

The ad will run in both the Tallahassee and Panama City markets.
