If you’re a Verizon FiOs or Comcast cable subscriber, you might see some Tommy Wells with your news programming soon. The campaign has bought ad time to run two ads as commercials around news shows.
Both of the ads focus on alleged Vince Gray shadow campaign financier Jeff Thompson. The first, with a jazzy elevator music soundtrack, asks in a quiz-style format whether Gray or leading challenger Muriel Bowser took campaign contributions from alleged members of Thompson’s donation network (The answer, of course, is that they both did).
The second ad, embedded below, returns with the smooth jazz and quiz, highlighting Wells’ distinction as the only elected candidate in the race who never received Thompson money.
The ads will run for two weeks, according to campaign manager Chebon Marshall.
