    "Thank you for keeping Florida free. Keep fighting the good fight" is the closing message of the 61-second TV spot. "These stories are the 'why' behind Governor DeSantis' leadership and his fight for Floridians each and every day," the video description for the ad reads. The DeSantis campaign told Fox News the commercial will air on TV statewide in Florida, as well as digitally. The campaign did not disclose how much it is spending to run the ad. DeSantis is among the most popular governors among Republican voters, largely for the reasons mentioned in his ad. That popularity has translated to massive fundraising success, with the governor raising more than $100 million for his 2022 campaign — a record-smashing sum. By way of comparison, his likely Democratic opponent, Rep. Charlie Crist (D-Fla.), the state's former Republican governor who switched parties, has raised just over $11.5 million this cycle to unseat DeSantis. Part of DeSantis' financial success can be attributed to the support of GOP mega-donors who have also backed former President Donald Trump. Friends of Ron...
    Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D) launched her first television ad as she seeks the nomination for Florida’s Democrat primary. She launched the ad with the moniker “Something New,” harkening back to a phrase she has commonly used on the campaign trail and when she launched her campaign over a year ago. “Florida has had 46 governors, but for our 47th, we need something new,” she tweeted, seemingly hinting at the fact that Florida has never had a female governor. FIRST TV AD: Florida has had 46 governors, but for our 47th, we need something new. pic.twitter.com/V9TDC2mBH1 — Nikki Fried (@NikkiFried) August 1, 2022 “Florida’s had 46 Governors, some good, some bad — and one, depends on which way the wind’s blowing. But with Roe gone, our cost of living out of control and no ban on assault weapons, we have to try something new,” Fried tweeted.

    In an exclusive release first obtained by The Tennessee Star, former Speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives Beth Harwell unveiled her first television ad for the August 4 Republican primary in the race for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District seat. In the ad, Harwell calls on Congress to finish former President Donald Trump’s wall, fight for tougher penalties on criminals, and ban sanctuary cities. The campaign statement on the ad says, “The ad comes off Beth’s visit to the southern border in May, where she gained firsthand experience of the problems that can arise with reckless policies at the border.” The ad begins with Beth standing in front of the border wall, saying, “America’s illegal immigration crisis starts here at our southern border, but it ends in our own backyards …” Harwell then goes on to say, “In Congress, I’ll fight to finish President Trump’s wall, fight for tougher penalties on criminals, and ban sanctuary cities.” The Tennessee Star previously reported Monday that Harwell released an 8-point plan to secure the border. Her plan calls for finishing Trump’s wall, keeping Title...
    Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp used Stacey Abrams attack on the state to hit her in a new ad ahead of their November rematch for the governor's seat.  The ad begins by playing a widely criticized clip of Abrams calling Georgia the 'worst' place to live. 'I am tired of hearing about how we're the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,' Abrams said in a speech at Gwinnett Democrats' Bluetopia Gala in Norcross, Georgia on May 21.  'Bless her heart,' a narrator in the commercial said. 'Georgia leads the nation in economic recovery. Georgia leads the nation because Brian Kemp is governor.' 'He reopened Georgia first, brought thousands of jobs and Kemp's cut taxes to help families deal with Biden's inflation,' the commercial went on.  In her remark, Abrams was responding to Kemp's frequent claim about Georgia being the best place for business.  'I am tired of hearing about how we're the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in...
    Former President Donald Trump brought VA-02 congressional candidate Jarome Bell onstage at a rally on Monday. “So Jarome, what are you running for? What and where?” Trump asked, according to a video of the event, where attendees vied to draw Trump’s attention to their candidacies across the U.S. “A RINO, Jen Kiggans, is running against me,” Bell said. “They call me the black Trump of Virginia.” “My honor,” Trump replied. VA-04 GOP candidate Leon Benjamin Sr. was also present, shouting from the crowd, “I’m running for Congress in the fourth in Virginia, and we’re going to wipe it up.” “Benjamin, all right,” Trump said. Freedom Caucus member Congressman Bob Good (R-VA-05) endorsed Bell in March. “He has pledged to join the House Freedom Caucus, and will be another courageous warrior fighting in Washington for our true conservative principles and to defeat the radical left,” Good said. Both the endorsement and Bell’s appearance with Trump have attracted Democratic media coverage. State Senator Jen Kiggans (R-Virginia Beach) is the front runner in the VA-02 congressional nomination. According to the Virginia Public Access...
    Leading Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who left broadcast news after thirty years in the business, is set to release her first television commercial on Monday. The ad, aimed to air during the evening news hour criticizes those shows for their bias, and tells viewers to turn the shows off. Lake told the Arizona Sun Times, “My first TV ad, titled ‘Rigged Elections Have Consequences,’ airs this Monday! And it will ONLY air during fake news programs. I am not a conventional, boring politician so it should surprise no one that I don’t have conventional, boring campaign ads. If the Fake News refuses to tell the truth, it’s up to us to do so.

"In the Senate, Johnson pushed a law that ‘benefited him financially,’ created a special tax break that helped his top donors, and Johnson’s net worth doubled." DSCC's new ad said.  "But while Johnson’s been helping himself, he’s been hurting Wisconsin families. Rewarding companies that outsource to China. Voting to raise health care costs and against veterans’ benefits.".  DSCC spokesperson Amanda Sherman Baity ripped Johnson, who had previously said he would only serve two terms in the Senate, in a statement on Sunday.   “When he’s not manipulating the tax code that...

    (CNN)Former President Barack Obama urges Californians to reject the recall effort targeting Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in a television ad released on Wednesday, telling voters that the outcome of Tuesday's recall election could be the difference "between protecting our kids and putting them at risk." The ad is the latest example of high-profile national Democrats, from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren to Vice President Kamala Harris, coming to Newsom's defense. President Joe Biden is expected to travel to California early next week to campaign for the governor. "You've got a big choice to make by September 14. Governor Newsom has spent the past year and a half protecting California communities. Now Republicans are trying to recall him from office and overturn common-sense Covid safety measures for health care workers and school staff," Obama says, with an image of Larry Elder, Newsom's leading Republican opponent, and former President Donald Trump flashing on the screen.

    He’s been repeatedly taking aim at President Biden over the turbulent U.S. withdrawal and evacuation from Afghanistan, even calling on the president to resign.  So it’s no surprise that former President Trump this past week went up with an ad titled "Failure" which uses a montage of video clips and still photos that pillories Biden over this summer’s lightning fast takeover of Afghanistan by repressive Taliban forces and the hastily organized evacuation at Kabul’s international airport to airlift Americans and their Afghan allies out of the warn torn Central Asian country. BIDEN NUMBERS DROPPING IN WAKE OF TURBULENT U.S. EXIT FROM AFGHANISTAN The spot – backed by a very modest ad buy – ran briefly on cable TV, according to officials with Trump’s Save America PAC, which produced the commercial. And Save America is currently fundraising off the ad. In a fundraising email this weekend, the moderator in what appears to be a newer version of the spot charges "we told you Joe Biden was not up to the job. Now we’re seeing the devastating consequences of his incompetence." Since...
    Virginia gubernatorial candidate and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) is using his first general election television ad to tie Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin to former President TrumpDonald TrumpCaitlyn Jenner pledges to support Trump if he makes another bid for the White House Biden says he doesn't want voting rights 'wrapped up' in filibuster debate Club for Growth goes after Cheney in ad, compares her to Clinton MORE.  In the 30-second spot, dubbed "Because of You," McAuliffe calls Youngkin a "loyalist to Donald Trump." The ad also uses audio of a radio interview Youngkin gave in May, when the Republican said Trump represents "so much of why I'm running."  Trump has emerged as a major factor in the gubernatorial race as McAuliffe and his Democratic allies seek to tie Youngkin to the former president, who lost Virginia in the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections.  However, Youngkin's campaign has also worked to link McAuliffe to Trump. Youngkin's campaign released a digital ad earlier this month titled "Exposed: Terry McAuliffe’s Obsession With Donald Trump" in which the campaign cited a 2009 contribution Trump made to McAuliffe and footage of...
    Kelly Tshibaka, the conservative Republican Senate candidate challenging establishment incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in Alaska, released her first television ad of the 2022 election on Monday, over a year ahead of the primary matchup. The ad features the conservative candidate detailing her own Alaska story, highlighting her conservative values and her roots as her parents rose from homelessness to the middle class after moving to the Last Frontier State in the 1970s. “Growing up wasn’t always easy. My mom and dad were homeless, surviving in a canvas tent. But tough times made me who I am today. I’m a conservative. Pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and America First. Always. We’re raising our five kids with those same Alaska values.” “The insiders don’t like me because I spent my career exposing taxpayer fraud and abuse,” Tshibaka continues in the ad. “That’s okay. I’m not running for them. I’m running for you.” A Tshibaka campaign official confirmed to Breitbart News that the ad will air on broadcast and cable TV in Alaska and described it as a “healthy buy,” although the official would not...

    Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) speaks during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill on August 5, 2020 in Washington, DC.Erin Schaff-Pool | Getty Images A super PAC targeting Lindsey Graham is rolling out its first television ad against the longtime South Carolina lawmaker as polls show a tight race for the Republican's U.S. Senate seat.  The PAC, called Lindsey Must Go, is teaming up with NRDC Action Votes, an independent expenditure political committee, to launch the ad next week in the Charleston market.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Are you fed up with an electoral process where the major parties squeeze out other voices, big money promotes bitter, divisive campaigning, and it seems impossible to get a majority for anything? Who isn’t? But a new TV ad promoting ranked choice voting as a solution doesn’t give you the full story. If you’ve ever been in Cambridge during election season, you’ve seen the signs of their ranked-choice voting system, in effect there for 80 years. It allows voters to rank the candidates in order of preference. If one gets more than 50 percent of first-choice votes, they win. If not, candidates with the fewest first-choice votes are eliminated and the second picks on those ballots become first-place choices, the process continuing until someone has a majority. Maybe you’ve seen the ad promoting a “yes” vote on Ballot Question Two this fall that would implement ranked choice voting statewide. “We are at our best when we are united,” says the narrator over images of smiling folks. Then we see distorted video of partisan...
    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy on Wednesday started television advertising for his reelection bid, launching a 30-second spot that focuses on his work on veterans' issues. The Republican senator, running for a second six-year term on the Nov. 3 ballot, serves on the Senate's Committee on Veterans Affairs. Cassidy's first TV ad of his reelection campaign touts his work on mental health services, job assistance and other legislation aimed at supporting veterans. The ad provides few specifics. Cassidy walks on the screen, in front of images of the military in various wars over the years. He says Americans “owe our freedom to veterans.” “They have America's back. We must have theirs,” the incumbent senator says. Cassidy, a doctor from Baton Rouge, has drawn 14 opponents in the race. His highest profile challenger — Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins, a Democrat — is a veteran, with a West Point education and three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Perkins highlights his military service as part of the campaign and has described wearing a bracelet with the names...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A Democratic state legislator hoping to unseat a Republican congressman in central Arkansas launched her first television ad on Tuesday. State Sen. Joyce Elliott talks about her background as a schoolteacher and a lawmaker in the ad, which her campaign said it's spending more than $150,000 on to run on TV and digitally. It's the first ad Elliott has run in her bid to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. French Hill in central Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District. Elliott reported raising more than twice as much as Hill in the most recent quarter, though Hill's campaign has more cash on hand than hers for his re-election bid. Hill was first elected to the seat in 2014. Elliott announced her bid against Hill in November. Republicans hold all four of Arkansas' congressional seats, and Democrats have viewed the 2nd District in recent years as their best chance at reclaiming one of those seats. Elliott ran unsuccessfully for the seat in 2010 against Republican Tim Griffin, who is now the state's lieutenant governor. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights...

    (CNN)Joe Biden's campaign is debuting its first general election television ad in Texas on Tuesday, dipping its toes in a state long considered a Republican stronghold and one that's seen an uptick in Covid-19 cases in recent weeks.The minute-long coronavirus-focused spot, titled "Tough," is part of a new mid-six figure broadcast and digital advertisement buy, a Biden campaign official said, with state customized ads slated to run in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, as well as Texas -- all states that have seen recent rises in coronavirus cases. The spot makes no mention of President Donald Trump by name, but Biden advisers intend for the ads to draw a stark contrast with the President's handling of and messaging around the coronavirus pandemic."I'm thinking of all of you today across Texas. I know the rise in case numbers is causing fear and apprehension. People are frightened. They're especially worried about their parents, their grandparents, loved ones who are most at risk," Biden says in the spot that will air in the Lone Star State.

    Supporters of a ballot measure to expand Medicaid to 230,000 Missourians are airing their first TV ad ahead of next month's vote. The spot's narrator says that Amendment 2, as the measure is known, would "fix" the problem of Missouri's federal tax dollars helping to pay for health care in other states by bringing those funds "back to Missouri." The remainder of the ad argues that the amendment would "protect thousands of healthcare jobs," "help keep our rural hospitals open," and "deliver healthcare to more veterans and hardworking Missouri families." xOur first TV ad just went out!

    President Donald Trumps campaign has released its first Spanish-language television advertisement, dropping a spot that is identical to one in English that claims probable Democrat nominee Joe Biden does not have the "mental capacity" to lead the nation. The campaign has spent more than $660,000 on the Spanish language campaign ad since it started running it, reports NBC News, quoting Advertising Analytics. The advertisement is hitting hard in traditional Latino markets, posting more than 150 times each in the Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Sarasota television markets in Florida as well as in Phoenix, Arizona, but is also being placed on national television and in key swing states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, and North Carolina. The campaign has already been running some Spanish-language digital advertising as well and has been reaching out to Latino voters through the coalition "Latinos for Trump," which consists of 21 advisory board members who pitch Trump to Latinos. The coalition held an event online last week, featuring an appearance from Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón, Puerto Ricos congressional delegate.  Campaign deputy communications director Ali Pardo told...
