Kasich launches his first presidential campaign ad in NH

Governor Kasich has launched his first ad in New Hampshire. According to Henry Gomez of the Plain Dealer:

Three sources close to the Republican’s team confirmed Wednesday that the buy includes Boston, an expensive market that spills into the first primary state. One source said the overall buy cost more than $1 million.

It’s a big move for a White House hopeful polling at the bottom of the pack in New Hampshire and nationally. And it’s the latest sign that Kasich will marshal a great deal of his early resources to the Granite State with hopes of breaking out from a historically large GOP field that features more than a dozen prominent hopefuls.

The ad buy also could earn Kasich free media coverage in New Hampshire and beyond. Kasich needs to raise his standing in national polls if he wants to qualify for the first Republican presidential debate, scheduled for Aug. 6 in Cleveland.

Watch the ad below and share your thoughts in the comments.

  1. Fox New has detailed its selection criteria for making the first debate:
    FOX News’ Executive Vice President of News Editorial Michael Clemente announced the entry criteria for inclusion in the debate. The participants must:
    Must meet all U.S. Constitutional requirements; and
    Must announce and register a formal campaign for president; and
    Must file all necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC); and
    Must have paid all necessary federal and state filing fees; and
    Must place in the top 10 of an average of the five most recent national polls, as recognized by FOX News leading up to August 4th at 5 PM/ET. Such polling must be conducted by major, nationally recognized organizations that use standard methodological techniques.

    This means that independents and democrats will have a significant hand in deciding who the 2016 republican candidate for POTUS will be.

    One can look at the merits of this from more than one point of view. I get that.

    But, if late in the evening of Tuesday, November 8, 2016 we hear the TV talking heads say “well, it looks like the GOP just could not get their base to the polls tonight”. Let’s all scratch our collective heads and say now why would that be?

  2. I have to admit that was an awesome political add by the way. Best I have seen this year.

  3. I have known John since he was in college…..and he truly does know about, care about and understand the everyday people of our country…..he IS one of US!!!!!!
