Digital banner ads follow unveiling of a large banner in downtown Cleveland highlighting Portman’s refusal to stand up to Trump
COLUMBUS, OH -- One day after the unveiling of a large banner in downtown Cleveland with the message “If Rob Portman Can’t Stand Up To Donald Trump, Portman Won’t Stand up For Ohio,” today the Ted Strickland for Senate Campaign is launching digital banner advertisements to highlight the same message to voters across the state.
“If Senator Portman lacks the courage to stand up to Donald Trump like Republican Governor Kasich has, then there's no way Portman can stand up for Ohio in the Senate,” said Strickland Campaign Spokesman David Bergstein. “The truth is that Portman is all in for Trump because they share the same agenda: looking out for the rich, the powerful and the well connected at the expense of Ohioans who actually work for a living. There is no rock in Cleveland Portman can hide under to escape the fact that he's backing the most toxic and divisive presidential nominee in modern history."
The banners will be displayed across news websites in Ohio on Google’s Display Network and are part of the Strickland campaign’s ongoing six-figure paid media campaign, which will feature a mix of search, social display and digital pre-roll advertising. Photos of the banner ads are below:
Throughout the week of the RNC, the Strickland campaign is launching a series of digital advertisements highlighting how Senator Portman is “All In” for Trump and will be unable to hide his support for Trump in Cleveland. Today’s banner ads follow the launch of a sponsored Snapchat filter on Tuesday and Facebook “Canvas” and Twitter ads on Monday featuring the campaign’s spot “Portman Has Really Been Good To Me.”
The Strickland campaign has also launched a digital hub, www.PortmanALLinForTrump.com, which is providing Ohioans and members of the press continuous updates about the Strickland Campaign and Ohio Democratic Party’s on-the-ground activities in Cleveland during the Convention.
