Josh Welle released his third ad of the campaign on Friday, this time taking at Rep. Chris Smith’s record on abortion and unavailability to voters.
“Smith hasn’t held a town hall in 25 years. And instead of protecting women and families, he wants to ban abortion… even in the cases of rape or when the life of the woman is at risk,” Welle says in the ad. “Smith voted against equal pay and the Violence Against Women Act.”
The 30-second spot also touts Welle’s time at the U.S. Naval Academy in an attempt to differentiate the candidate from Smith, who has represented the district since 1981.
