Democratic congressional candidate Amy Kennedy is launching a new TV ad that highlights her South Jersey roots, her pledge to provide affordable health care and economic recovery.
The ad, “Work For You,” will run on Philadelphia broadcast television and cable television across New Jersey’s 2nd district. Kennedy narrates her own ad promises that “in Congress, I’ll only work for you. Not a party or President. You.”
It will be Kennedy’s closing ad in her bid to unseat Democrat-turned-Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew in a hugely competitive South Jersey House race.
Kennedy closes the ad with a clear shot at Van Drew, who pledged his “undying support” to President Donald Trump while sitting in the Oval Office soon after announcing he was becoming a Republican.
Script: “I’m Amy Kennedy. I’ve spent my life in South Jersey, and nothing is more important to me than making sure everybody here has a secure future. I know we can provide access to good affordable healthcare. And we CAN have an economic recovery that works for everyone. You need to trust that your next representative in Washington is fighting for South Jersey. In Congress, I’ll only work for you. Not a party or President. You.”
