San Diego – The third and final television advertisement of the Scott Peters for Congress campaign begins airing on local network affiliate and cable stations tonight. The 30-second ad is upbeat and positive and will continue airing until late on June 5.
“We are proud of the campaign we’ve run and very pleased with the response to our first two ads,” said Campaign Communications Director MaryAnne Pintar. “Out at events all weekend, people were stopping Scott to say ‘I saw your ads and I’m voting for you’,” she said.
The campaign also is very pleased with how things look going into the final week, she said, adding that “our plan is working and we get to end our television campaign in an upbeat, positive way.”
The first half of the spot, called “Values,” highlights themes of the campaign’s first two ads – Scott’s record of job creation and his public safety accomplishments and backing. The second half reinforces his commitment to protecting Social Security and Medicare, states that he opposes cuts to these benefits. It also touts the depth and breadth of the endorsements he’s earned. It ends with a visual of three newspapers who have endorsed in this race, which all back Scott. The voice-over says, “San Diego newspapers, teachers, and firefighters have endorsed Scott Peters. He’ll get things done.”
In addition to television and mail, the Peters campaign has hundreds of volunteer callers and walkers who fill its phone banks and the neighborhoods of CD 52 every day. Dozens of endorsing elected officials and organizations also are helping with voter contact every weekend by bringing their staffs, supporters and members out to help us walk and call voters. For example, earlier this month 80 members of LIUNA (Laborers International Union of North America) showed up in their bright orange t-shirts to knock on doors for Scott, and elected officials from throughout the region will be making calls on Scott’s behalf in the campaign's final days.
