Spot highlights the contrast between Strickland and Portman on the auto-rescue
COLUMBUS, OH -- Today the Ted Strickland for Senate Campaign is releasing a new digital ad: “Lousy Deal.”
The spot features testimonials from Ohio autoworkers highlighting how Ted fought for working families by pushing for the auto rescue that helped protect hundreds of thousands of Ohio jobs, while Senator Portman prioritized the interests of his rich and powerful friends at Ohio’s expense by opposing the auto rescue, even calling it a “lousy deal for Ohio.”
Over the past week, auto-workers and Ohio Democrats have held events across the state calling Senator Portman out for opposing the auto rescue and for attempting to lie about his record on this critical issue.
The ad will reach targeted voters as part of the Strickland campaign’s ongoing six-figure online paid media campaign which features a mix of search, social display and digital pre-roll advertising.
Worker #1: It was difficult in our plant, just not knowing what was coming next.
Worker #2: To have the support from Ted Strickland on the auto-bailout was huge. It’s what saved us.
Worker #1: Had he not pushed for the auto-rescue, 800,000 Ohioans could have been at risk of losing their jobs.
Worker #3: Rob Portman called the auto bailout a ‘lousy deal.’ My thoughts are he didn’t get it.
Worker #1: It shows how out of touch he is with real Ohio working families. Had we not received that help it would have devastated Ohio communities.
