Jersey Values, the CD5 Dem Rep. Josh Gottheimer’s first TV ad in this cycle is up, emailed to supporters along with a fundraising appeal. Gottheimer took Scott Garrett’s seat on the same day America elected Donald Trump, and this is his first campaign defending his seat. This ad focuses on Gottheimer’s constituent service and profile in the district, and it’s narrated by a firefighter, a grandma, a Democratic mayor and a Republican mayor, and a veteran – all white, and all middle-aged, except a younger fireman. Cook’s rates NJ-5 as Likely Democratic.
What do you think, Blue Jersey?
