Gibbons Launches New TV Ad for 3rd CD Race

Des Moines, IA—Jim Gibbons, Republican candidate for Congress in Iowa’s Third Congressional District, announced today that he is launching his second paid television commercial continuing his outreach to voters in the 3rd Congressional District.

“This ad will be a great opportunity for me to reach the thousands of voters that will be going to the polls on June 8th. I am running for Congress to reduce wasteful spending in Washington and grow jobs in Iowa,” said Jim Gibbons. “I believe central Iowa needs a Congressman that will represent Iowa values, not Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco-style values.”

The ad, titled “Future Generations,” shows viewers more of Gibbons personal life, including his family. The ad reiterates Gibbons personal values of hard work, honesty, and family – all important values to central Iowans. Gibbons has purchased a significant buy of air-time to run this ad and expects to reach a majority of voters.
