State Senate candidate Seth Grossman launched new digital ad Wednesday, continuing his campaign theme of targeting “woke” Democrats and renewing an attack over public contracts held by the engineering firm of rival Vince Polistina.
A 30-second spot attacks Polistina over public contracts, framing him as a cog in the state’s political machine concerned only for his own enrichment while touting Grossman’s position on cultural issues popular among Republicans.
Script: An empty baseball stadium, empty train station, two convention centers nobody uses and the half-billion-dollar Revel Casino bailout. Vince Polistina supported all this and more? Why?
Polistina gets millions in government contracts, and to get along, Vince Polistina has to go along. Seth Grossman’s on our side. Grossman’s taken on BLM and antifa, fought against open borders, critical race theory and gun control.
And Seth Grossman always puts taxpayers first. Seth Grossman for Senate. Honest, independent Republican for the people.
The 10-second spot shows headshots of Gov. Phil Murphy, Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-West Deptford), South Jersey powerbroker George Norcross and U.S. Sens. Bob Menendez (D-North Bergen) and Cory Booker (D-Newark) while a narrator frames Grossman as the only solution.
Script: There’s a woke mob running New Jersey, and only Seth Grossman has the guts to stand up to them. Seth Grossman for Senate. Honest, independent, for the people.
Grossman is running off-the-line for the Republican nod for State Senate in the second legislative district.
The 10-second spot does not mention or show Polistina or Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo (D-Northfield), the Democratic nominee for retiring State Sen. Chris Brown’s (R-Ventnor City) seat in the upper chamber.
The former congressional candidate has put the shorter ad up on Facebook, though he declined to say whether it would appear anywhere else. It’s not clear where the longer spot will run.
