Jennifer Lewis releases first TV ad in Sixth District race

Jennifer LewisDemocratic Party nominee Jennifer Lewis released the first television ad in Virginia’s Sixth District congressoinal race.

The ad, “Trust & Independence,” is airing in the Roanoke-Lynchburg television market.

Lewis, the underdog in a historically Republican district, is currently the only candidate for Congress in the Sixth running television advertising. The ad serves as a simple presentation of Lewis’s progressive-populist message.

“Our government is broken. Politicians serve lobbyists, large corporations, and their campaign contributors – while ignoring the needs of the majority of the people,” Lewis begins.

“My independence from corporate donors, special interests, and party leaders makes me the only candidate you can trust will serve you. And that’s what I’m asking for – not just your vote on November 6th, but more importantly, your trust.”

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
