“Washington failed to protect our borders and failed to get serious about the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.”
This declaration from John Rutherford, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida’s 4th Congressional District, launches his latest television ad.
The 30-second spot, running on both cable and broadcast currently, reinforces themes the former Jacksonville sheriff spoke on at length during an extended interview with FloridaPolitics.com earlier this month.
Among the successes trumpeted in the ad: Rutherford’s work in 2008 to fight illegal immigrants, devoting JSO resources to targeting “illegal immigrant felons”; and Rutherford’s work to combat Islamic extremist terrorists, including 12 years of collaboration with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.
The spot will be seen on local television news on the NBC affiliate, as well as during “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy.” It will also be seen on the local CBS affiliate, during such shows as “CBS Sunday Morning” and “Face the Nation.” And it is being seen also on WJXT, as well as on local cable.
The ad is paid for by “Citizens for John Rutherford,” and can be seen below.
