Brad Schneider released his first television ad for the 2012 primary. The ad titled “Moving Forward” focuses on Schneider’s business experience and progressive values.
“This commercial represents the tone that we plan to maintain throughout this election,” said Schneider. “Unfortunately, we are combating outside interest groups that have been attacking me in the mail and over the phone. Misleading accusations are the tactics we have come to expect from the Tea Party, not from Democrats, and it is not the route our campaign will take. I look forward to continuing to share my lifetime commitment in support of working families, a woman’s right to choose, protecting the environment, marriage equality, and small business with the voters of the 10th district."
