Vainieri Huttle launches first digital spot

30-second ad touts assemblywoman’s progressive record

Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Englewood) launched the first digital video ad in the race to succeed Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck) Monday, seeking to burnish her progressive credentials as she runs off the line against Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (D-Englewood).

The 30-second spot features voiceover from Vainieri Huttle touting her record on her progressive record. It gives no specifics, though neither Vainieri Huttle’s nor Johnson’s progressive records are at question.

Script: If I walked away every time a man in power told me to back off, I couldn’t have become a proven, progressive leader in the Assembly. But I never walk away. I delivered real, progressive change for Bergen County. I’m protecting tax payers, seniors and underserved communities. Now, I’m running for State Senate, raising my voice and fighting alongside other progressive women, so join me and vote on June 8th for proven progressive leadership.

Teaneck Councilwoman Gervonn Romney Rice and Tenafly Councilwoman Lauren Kohn Dayton, Vainieri Huttle’s Assembly running mates, appear in the ad alongside the assemblywoman.

The three are running off-the-line against Johnson, former Tenafly Councilwoman Shama Haider and former Englewood Cliffs Councilwoman Ellen Park, who each have the backing of the Democratic Committee of Bergen County.

It’s not clear where the ad will run. Facebook’s ad library lists three digital ads, each a still photo that redirects to Vainieri Huttle’s campaign website, which prominently features the spot.
