Harrison taps Booker for first TV ad

By Nikita Biryukov, June 15 2020 10:59 am

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-Newark) plays a big role in House candidate Brigid Harrison’s first TV ad.

“There’s a reason firefighters, grocery store workers and labor support Brigid Callahan Harrison for Congress: because Brigid is tough enough to beat Trump and Jeff Van Drew,” Booker says in a 30-second launched by Harrison’s campaign.

Booker has backed Harrison for the Democratic nod to take on Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis). He’s even pulled himself off the party line in Atlantic County after Democrats there chose to back Amy Kennedy, one of Harrison’s primary opponents.

“I am proud of Cory Booker’s support of my candidacy. I am honored that Cory chose to bracket with me in each of our counties for the primary, and I am proud to walk side by side with Senator Cory Booker in this election,” Harrison said. “As Democrats, our partnership is based on a shared a vision for the future, commitment to the policies that matter to New Jersey, and most of all, doing the hard work to actually beat Trump and Van Drew in November.”

Harrison’s campaign declined to say how much money was being put behind the buy, but the ad already running in the second district.

“South Jersey has never sent a woman to Congress — ever,” Booker said. “Change that.”
