A new round of ads is hitting the airwaves later today from the Friends of Rep. Justin Simmons campaign.
The new ads are the latest in a series of "offense" and "defense" ads run by the Simmons campaign. The first shows challenger Kevin Deely as a cartoon while talking about his time as a teachers union representative. The second ad shows Rep. Justin Simmons speaking about his record in the House of Representatives.
"This television advertising will allow me to communicate that message in a broader manner," Simmons said in a statement released early Wednesday.
The first of the original two ads shows Simmons talking about his record on education in Harrisburg, while the second shows a smoking $100 bill as a voiceover talks about challenger Kevin Deely's time as a teachers union representative.
The Simmons/Deely race has been named a "race to watch" in a recent Politics PA article. The two just met in their first of two scheduled debates Tuesday Oct. 9 at DeSales University.
