Jon Bramnick is up on the air with a new cable television ad advocating civility and bipartisanship in Trenton and rejecting extremism as he seeks to become the new state senator from the 21st legislative district.
In his ad, “Fighting for You, Bramnick mostly speaks directly to the camera and talks about willing to take on fights against bureaucrats at the Motor Vehicles Commission and Department of Labor.
Script: “Hi, I’m Jon Bramnick and I’m running for State Senate. We are seeing growing bitterness in this country. A widening partisan divide. I’ve always supported civility, bipartisanship, and rejected extremism in politics. There are many who simply want to engage in partisan fighting. That’s not what I’m interested in. That doesn’t mean that I can’t fight. When motor vehicles didn’t do what they were supposed to do, I was happy to take on that fight. When you didn’t get your unemployment benefits, that’s another fight I took on. And when health insurance companies simply didn’t pay your medical bills, I was there. And as you state senator, I’m going to continue on with those fights. I’m Jon Bramnick and I appreciate your support.”
A ten-term assemblyman and the minority leader since 2012, Bramnick is seeking the Senate seat being vacated by his longtime running mate, Thomas Kean, Jr. Kean, the minority leader of the State Senate, chose not to seek re-election to the legislature in order to focus on his bid for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022.
He faces Democrat Joseph Signorello, the mayor of Roselle Park.
