Ninth Ad of Cycle Draws Stark Contrast Between Bost and Brendan

BELLEVILLE, IL – Brendan Kelly’s campaign for Illinois’ 12th Congressional District today released its ninth ad of the cycle: “Values.” The ad draws a direct contrast between Brendan and lifetime politician Mike Bost. While Mike Bost lies on TV, serves his dark money donors like Big Pharma, and takes away protections from people with pre-existing conditions, Brendan focuses on saving Southern Illinois.

Watch “Values” HERE.

Script: My opponent and his friends are running negative ads he knows are not true.

Falsely attacking my record as a prosecutor and knowing I won’t support Nancy Pelosi.

They can focus on lies, my focus is on you.

I’m fighting Big Pharma. He took their money.

I’ll strengthen Social Security and Medicare. He’ll cut them.

I’ll protect people with preexisting conditions He won’t.

He protects dark money donors and the rigged system that serves the powerful few. I’ll serve you.

Brendan Kelly is running for Congress in Illinois’s 12th Congressional District. The son of lifelong public servants, Brendan grew up in Southern Illinois. After serving in the Navy, he came home to raise his family. As the elected prosecutor of the largest county in the district, Brendan has fought corruption in both parties, prioritized prosecution of children’s sex assault, and successfully sued several of the nation’s biggest banks. He was the first prosecutor in Illinois to file suit against big pharmaceutical companies for their role in the opioid crisis. Brendan is endorsed by President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Representative Cheri Bustos, AFL-CIO, United Steelworkers, and AFSCME, among others.
