Ward Campaign Airs First Ad Ahead of VA-07 Primary
Dan Ward, candidate for VA-07, builds on momentum with release of personal ad
ORANGE, VA – Today Dan Ward, Democratic Candidate running for Congress in VA-07, announced the release of his campaign’s first television ad “On Your Side.”
The Ward campaign’s first spot, which will begin airing today in counties across the district, introduces voters to Ward’s humble background growing up with a large family in a cabin with no running water.
“…too many families are scraping just to get by. Coming home every day from jobs that don’t cover the bills, only to worry about healthcare they can’t afford,” Ward says in the video. “Washington doesn’t give a damn. But I do.”
Dan Ward’s campaign is the first to go up on television ahead of the upcoming June 12th primary. The campaign continues to build momentum following the release of several endorsements last week including the Virginia AFL-CIO, the veterans’ organization With Honor, and a slate of local candidates and party officials.
Also out today, a 60-Second radio ad, full text below:
I’m Dan Ward and I am running for Congress in Virginia’s 7th District. I grew up with 7 brothers and sisters in a cabin with no running water. That’s where I learned that having someone on your side can make a big difference. I worked hard, earned a scholarship to Vanderbilt, and served my country for 24 years in the Marines.
In 2008 I was a reservist and commercial pilot for Continental when the economy collapsed. Thousands of pilots were furloughed and I found myself without a job. There I was, a veteran. A pilot. And my family had to make the tough choice between paying the mortgage or paying for healthcare. I’m running for congress because too many of us are forced to make that same choice. And you know what gets me? Washington doesn’t give a damn. But I do. In Congress, I’ll be on your side, working on the issues that matter to us. Like making healthcare affordable, improving education, and keeping the most dangerous guns out of our schools and communities.
