Today Dan Ward, a Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, released his campaign’s final television ad “Stand up” ahead of the June 12th primary.
In the ad, Ward relates how his experiences as a Marine and military advisor in President Obama’s State Department taught him to recognize authoritarians when he sees them. “…I know something about dictators who tell you what you want to hear, use you, and leave you with nothing.” Ward says, “Tweets and threats aren’t going to provide affordable healthcare or create jobs.”
The release of this final ad 8 days before the primary caps off the 4th week in which Ward has outspent his Democratic primary opponent. This latest television ad was released in tandem with a corresponding radio spot, read by campaign surrogate Reverend Jeanetta Lee, touting Ward’s credentials and how he will make standing up to Donald Trump a top priority.
