Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Christian Fong has released a statewide radio in an effort to build his name ID across the state.
Here is the transcript of the advertisement, “Iowa Dream”:
Christian Fong: It was 1944, as communism was ascending, Nelson Fong’s family escaped China.
Meanwhile, the United States was a beacon of freedom. After tax cuts in ’61, the U.S. was booming. Nelson Fong, a Christian in Hong Kong was drawn by the promise of freedom to the United States in ‘63. He met a farm girl, worked many jobs and eventually settled in a small western Iowa town. Today, Nelson Fong lives that American dream…I know because he’s my father.
I’m Christian Fong. Today, I see that dream slipping away. We have a state government that borrowed almost a billion dollars to pay its bills. As Governor I would end the use of taxpayer money to fund lobbyists and veto any budget that is not balanced.
Like many of you, we live the Iowa Dream and we should never let that slip away. I’m Christian Fong.
Announcer: Paid for by Iowans for Christian Fong. Conservative Republican for Governor.
Recent polls have shown that Iowans are unfamiliar with Christian Fong. In TheIowaRepublican.com poll, Fong only received support from 1% of respondents on the Republican primary ballot test.
Marlys Popma, Fong’s campaign manager said, “Our fundraising has been strong enough; it’s allowed us the luxury of starting our paid media campaign earlier than we had initially anticipated. Christian has a unique story that sets him apart in this crowded Republican field and this advertisement allows us to introduce him to Republicans across the state.”
