Okay, it’s time for an intervention. When I saw John Gregg’s first TV ad, I scratched my head trying to figure out what was going on. Now I definitely think we have a problem.
I ran this ad by my wife, the most apolitical person in the universe. She has voted for Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians. She thought it was cute, but was wondering what was the point and when were you going to talk about jobs and the economy. I directed her to your website, however, her underlying point still sticks. These ads don’t work and she is the kind of moderate independent voter you need to reach.
I figured that if you were going to use your hometown as the backdrop for your ads, you’d have your friends and neighbors talking about what good guy you are and how you care about Indiana. And with the Indiana’s chamber poll saying you’re trailing 50-32 and you only have 41% name ID and pence has 80% and there are about 70 days to go before Election Day, you can’t afford to do these kind of misfires.
You know we have different politics, but we’ve known each other for years and I like you so this is why I’m giving you the free advice that the people you are paying should be.
And by the way. The only people talking about Planned Parenthood and Equal Pay are Democrats, so maybe your mom is tired of hearing from members of your party.
I’m looking forward to the next ad.
