TV ads in SW Ohio telling viewers to call their Senators,

tell Senators Portman & Brown to vote for Trump cabinet nominees.

Sessions was one cabinet nominee mentioned; not sure if the other was DeVos or Tillerson. -(poor memory- it was a few days ago.
Have any other Ohioans or residents of other states seen these ads?
Have other Cabinet nominees been mentioned in similar ads?

1. I've seen Sessions and DeVos in Cincinnati.



Cheap and cheesy traditional campaign ads. Photographs with voice over...Sessions as a tireless advocate for civil rights...DeVos as a successful professional with a long standing interest in the education of future generations.

Sickening.

I don't remember there being cabinet post campaigns in the past. Maybe me but this seems like a new tactic from the White House Media Department.

3. Sessions, as DUers know is a racist. I bet most people don't.

4. That's why these ads stood out for me - I've never seen ads promoting

Cabinet picks before either.
I wonder if they're being run in other states as well.
The ads listed who paid for them, but-again- my memory fails me at this minute. (Was it Koch interests?)

14. Haven't seen these ads in the Cleveland area

My husband watches the local news on NBC, CBS, and Fox, so maybe we aren't being targeted? Given how we were bombarded with the anti-Strickland crap for more than a year, I'm amazed that we are being overlooked in the campaign to bring Mr. Racist and Ms. Moron to the cabinet.

15. New TV ad today - this one from AARP, asking for viewers to contact

Senators re Social Security.

This is a new phenomenon - TV ads for political purpose outside the election season.
Perhaps they have a lot cash left over from the election season.
