Ad of the Day: Candidate's kids take on the national debt
Republican Congressional candidate Joel Demos is running an uphill-battle race against Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), but his most recent ad has been making the rounds on YouTube.
"Honey, I can't believe this. Every American owes $43,000 to the national debt," says Demos in the ad. His wife, sitting on the couch beside him replies, "Somebody's going to have to pay for that." Cut to Demos' daughter in a supermarket checkout line tossing (and we do mean tossing) a crate of eggs into a shopping bag. The children steal the show from there, taking on various "jobs," including pizza street vendor, door-to-door vacuum salesman, and car salesman (read: babies in suits).
Demos is not likely to win against Ellison, who holds a relatively substantial fundraising lead, but the ad is a funny take on what many voters consider to be a serious issue.
