11th Congressional District candidate Tricia Pridemore has released her first ad, “Prevail”:
It’s an interesting juxtaposition of scripture, Obama and Pelosi grainy backdrops, yet an overall uplifting message of hope. Think “Morning In America” for the 2014 cycle. It’s a different approach than last week’s ad released by opponent Ed Lindsey which is also positive, but goes more for soft humor.
Both ads are pretty decent. I’m guessing Pridemore’s gets deemed “controversial” because of the bold call to superimpose scripture over pictures of…Democrats. When it gets folks talking, that may make it a winner.
Pridemore’s press release below the fold:
Pridemore Launches First TV Ad “Prevail”
MARIETTA, GA— Successful businesswoman and Republican candidate for United States Congress Tricia Pridemore today began airing her first television advertisement of the campaign. The ad will run as part of a substantial network and cable television advertising buy.
“We’re excited to be able to directly communicate our conservative message with voters throughout the District. This election is so important, because there is so much at stake for the future of our country. With a devastating debt, out of control spending and politicians threatening our Constitutional freedoms, we have to act now to get our country back on track,” said Pridemore. “I believe it takes someone with real world business experience to change to course we’re on, and our aggressive media campaign helps show Georgians throughout the 11th District the choice they will have in this election.”
In the commercial, Pridemore’s positive message is a stark contrast against the current political status quo and conveys that we can overcome the obstacles before us, change the dysfunctional behavior in Washington DC and take our country back. The Bible passage, 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, read in the TV ad by Tricia, has served as an inspiration throughout her life whenever faced with the opportunity to overcome adversity and as a reminder that the darkest hour is just before the dawn. Although, the future of our country may look bleak, Pridemore asks the viewers to join her to help fix the mess in Congress.
PRIDEMORE: We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; …
perplexed, but not in despair; …
persecuted, but not abandoned; …
struck down, but not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)
For we – as conservative Georgians – shall prevail…
We will repeal Obamacare,
reject Obama’s assault on our Constitutional Freedoms,
and rest assured, knowing that our conservative Georgia values will triumph.
I’m Tricia Pridemore and I approve this message.
