‘Marcomentum’ ads feature Iowa caucusgoers, New Hampshire primary voters

in 2017 by

A pair of advertisements featuring Marco Rubio supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire are hitting the airwaves.

The ads — dubbed “Momentum” — feature Iowa caucusgoers and New Hampshire primary voters explaining why they support the Florida Republican. The spots will air in their respective states beginning today.

In the Iowa ad, caucusgoers from around the state highlight his time spent in Iowa listening to caucusgoers.

“It’s time we get someone in the White House who represents me,” a woman in an Iowa State University sweatshirt is shown saying at the beginning of the Iowa advertisement.

The ad continues: “He’s been here and listened, right here in Iowa. He understands my generation. He’ll get government off my farm, out of my farm and he’ll protect our rights.”

The New Hampshire ad strikes much of the same tone, with New Hampshire primary voters saying they are excited for Rubio because of his plan for a “New American Century.”

“He gets the new economy,” a man is shown saying in the New Hampshire advertisement.

It continues: “He’s got our values and a plan for a New American Century.”

Rubio is currently in third place in Iowa and fourth in New Hampshire, according to polling averages compiled by RealClearPolitics. The Iowa caucuses are Feb. 1. The New Hampshire primary is one week later on Feb. 9.
