Clinton Fights On in Ohio With New Ads
With only a few days left before the Ohio primary, Senator Hillary Clinton has new money in her pockets and ways to spend it. Her campaign reported today that the campaign raised $35 million in February. So flush with cash, the campaign bought a new TV ad and two radio spots.
The TV ad is called Fighter. The 30-second spot is narrated by Governor Ted Strickland (D-Ohio), who endorsed Clinton. The ad appeals to working class families in Ohio who have been hurt by job losses. Strickland vouches for Clinton and defends her, saying that she'll fight for the middle class
As for the radio ads, one is called, Faith* and, again, is narrated by Gov. Strickland. And in a similar vein as the television spot, the radio ad targets middle-class families and promises to bring jobs to Ohio. Strickland also mentions Clinton as a woman of deep faith. Recently, Clinton has said that her faith helped her to get through several difficult times in her life.
Here's the script:
"We need a president who's tough, who's determined, but we also need a president who really deeply cares about the American people. "
"I've known Hillary for fifteen years, admired her since the day I met her. She's a person of deep faith, who is driven by deeply felt-values, everything she does is an effort to make life better for other people. She's also a person who I believe understands Ohio very deeply. Hillary Clinton is the candidate who can best provide the leadership that America and Ohio needs to revitalize our economy, to bring healthcare to our people, to make education high quality and affordable for all of our children and she is most capable of bringing this war to an honorable end...What Ohioans I think need more than anything else is to have confidence that their president's going to be working for them and Hillary Clinton is a person who will be that kind of president. She's fighting for us."
Announcer: Paid for by Hillary Clinton for President
HRC: "I'm Hillary Clinton, candidate for president, and I approved this message."
The other radio ad, called Jobs*, discusses jobs that have been shipped overseas and industrial plants that have been shut down.
Here's the script:
Man #1: "The economy in this state is terrible."
Woman #1: "We need jobs very badly in Ohio."
Man #2: "We need a leader who cares about the people."
Announcer: She's fighting for America's middle class.
Man #1: "Hillary Clinton can and will turn this country and economy around."
Man #2: "We've had steel mills here that have left. Casting plants that have left."
Man #3: "These corporations are taking these jobs overseas."
Woman #1: "Hillary has gone on record saying that NAFTA was a mistake."
Man #1: "Hillary does have a plan to fix NAFTA. She wants to change it from free trade to fair trade."
Man #3: "She wants to fix the problems."
Announcer: She'll end 55 billion dollars in giveaways to corporate special interests and invest it to rebuild the middle class, create jobs, expand student loans and cut taxes for working families.
Man #2: "She has the knowledge. She has the ability."
Man #3: "Hillary Clinton has the will it takes to get up every morning and fight for working families here in the United States of America."
Woman #1: "She's going to bring job back here to Ohio."
Announcer: Paid for by Hillary Clinton for President.
HRC: I'm Hillary Clinton, candidate for President, and I approved this message.
