A new TV ad for Democrat Tom Malinowski features the Democratic congressman talking about pandemic relief for small towns and small businesses and not big chain retailers and bonuses for CEOs.
Malinowski narrates “Main Street,” using downtown Westfield as a backdrop as he touts his refusal to take corporate PAC money as the reason he can put his constituents ahead of big business.
This is Malinowski’s third cable television ad as he seeks re-election to a second term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Script: “We all live in small towns. Main Street needs help right now, so I’m working with both parties to get pandemic relief right her to save jobs –and demanding accountability so every dollar helps families and small businesses, not mega chains and CEO bonuses. And I can do this because I don’t take corporate PAC money, so they don’t own me – and I can fight for you. I’m Tom Malinowski and Main Street I why I approved this message.”
“Since day one of this crisis, Tom Malinowski has been working to ensure help gets where it’s needed most–our small businesses–not to stock buybacks or CEOs.” said Daniel Fleiss, Malinowski’s campaign manager. “Tom has helped secure loans to support nearly 15,000 businesses in our district, and more than 135,000 jobs. He’ll keep fighting until we make it through this crisis and recover even stronger than before.”
Malinowski faces Republican Thomas Kean, Jr., the minority leader of the New Jersey State Senate.
Kean has the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest pro-business advocacy group in the nation, and the National Federation of Independent Business, which advocates for small and independent businesses.
Michael McAdams, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said that Malinowski “works harder to protect his own ego than deliver the relief hardworking New Jersey families and businesses desperately need.”
