Today, the Matt Gaetz campaign announced the release of its first 30-second TV commercial, “Fight Back.”
“Matt Gaetz is ready to fight back against Washington, and we are excited to show Northwest Florida voters Matt’s conservative fighting spirit,” said campaign manager Ryan Smith. “Matt is running the strongest campaign for Florida’s 1st Congressional District, and he’s focused on talking directly to the voters.”
He added, “We have over 40,000 Facebook fans. We’ve made over 6,500 calls and knocked on more than 11,000 doors so far. As the Pensacola News Journal’s Andy Marlette recently said, Matt is the ‘thriller of conservatives and exasperator of liberals,’ and he’s ‘playing ball at a higher level’ than the rest of the field in this race.”
In the spot, Gaetz says, “I’m not running for Congress because I want to go to Washington; I’m running for Congress because we can’t trust Washington.”
He continues, “Northwest Florida voters are tired of the spineless politicians and lawless bureaucrats who are running our country into the ground.”
He pledged to “fight to protect our Second Amendment rights, give our military the tools they need to fight and kill radical Muslim terrorists, and build the wall to stop illegal immigration.”
“Our nation is in trouble, and we have two choices – to give up or to fight back. I’m running for Congress because I’m ready to fight back for Northwest Florida and get America back on track,” Gaetz said.
