The John Kasich campaign today released its second TV ad of the campaign.
Here's a link to the ad: http://www.kasichforohio.com/Lift. (The link takes you to the Kasich campaign Web site.)
The title of the one-minute ad is "Lift." It portrays the governor highlighting his working-class roots (in Pennsylvania) and his philosophy about broad economic growth.
Partly autobiographical, Kasich identifies himself as an underdog because of his parents' influence, saying, "Economic growth and prosperity shouldn't be limited to a few."
He said his parents taught him that, "those people who are hurting are people we need to help, we can't look the other way."
It ends with him saying that his administration has created nearly a quarter-million private-sector jobs and "we've just scratched the surface."
FitzGerald's campaign, which isn't on TV yet, said Kasich is a "shifter" with a record of marginalizing workers and women.
Lauren Hitt, communications director for the Democratic gubernatorial candidate, said, "In reality, the Governor has done little to allow Ohio's middle class families to achieve the same success he has."
