Former Obama administration official Lauren Baer is out with her first TV spot in support of her run for Florida’s 18th Congressional District.
The ad, titled “Our Home,” attempts to emphasize Baer’s connection with the district, along with her reasons for running in the first place.
“I started off as a lawyer, taking the fight to get money out of politics,” Baer says, while supporters interject with their reasons for backing her campaign.
“Kind of like a little powerhouse in a pint-size,” says one supporter.
“She’s a mother, she’s a daughter. I felt like she was there to connect with people,” adds another woman in praise of Baer.
“Six years working as a senior advisor to two different Secretaries of State,” says Baer of her background.
“We want quality, affordable health care. We want good public schools, a clean environment. This campaign is about families, same people I grew up with here. All they ask for is someone who actually listens.”
The ad is set to air on broadcast and cable TV in the Palm Beach media market. CD 18 covers part of Palm Beach County as well as Martin and St. Lucie counties.
Baer is one of two Democrats attempting to oust incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Brian Mast. She’s competing with former Navy JAG Pam Keith for the Democratic nomination.
