Joe Biden’s campaign is out with two new TV ads in Wisconsin, including one featuring a Pennsylvania man who says he made a mistake voting for Donald Trump in 2016.
They follow three new ads the Biden campaign released Wednesday. The spots are part of a $65 million buy running nationally, though the campaign hasn’t identified the markets in Wisconsin where they will run or how much of the buy is earmarked for the state.
One of the ads features a man identified as Rick, who says he’s a third-generation farmer in western Pennsylvania. He says Trump isn’t responsible for the coronavirus, but was “totally negligent on how he informed the people. The guy gets the blame for what’s happening.” He also praises Biden in the spot.
The second ads includes Biden’s remarks from a July speech in Pennsylvania, where he proposed requiring the government to buy American-made goods when spending taxpayer money. He said it would help create 5 million jobs.
“I know the history and the heart of this country. There’s not a single thing we’ve ever failed to do when we decided to do it together,” Biden says in the spot.
