New Ads for Kucinich
For Immediate Release: Jan. 23, 2004
The Dennis Kucinich for President campaign is getting a boost from new TV ads in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
Two new Kucinich ads that will begin airing on Monday address issues of trade and health care. They will air on Maine stations WGME (CBS), WCSH (NBC), WLBZ (NBC), WABI (CBS), Massachusetts station WHDH (NBC), Oklahoma stations KOTV (CBS), KTUL (ABC), KFOR (NBC), KWTV (CBS), CNN and MTV in Tulsa, CNN and MTV and USA in Oklahoma City, and New Mexico stations KOAT (ABC) and KOBTV (NBC).
A third ad that will begin airing soon takes a different approach from previous Kucinich ads and addresses Kucinich's record on the environment.
Concept design for this new ad by Sharon Jimenez and Chad Ely; Voiceover by Mimi Kennedy; Video Editing by Chad Ely and Eric Blumrich; Audio Editing by Chad Ely; Music by Bob Silverstein.
Here are the texts of the other two ads:
DENNIS KUCINICH VO: Health Care is a Human Right! 45 million Americans have zero health coverage. 30 million have only minimal coverage and those with insurance pay sky-high prices due to a greedy profit-driven system. As president I will establish a not for profit National Health Care plan for everyone. No paying through the nose, no one left behind to die -- so doctors and patients can stop living in fear.
FEMALE VO: Kucinich for President. America, it's time for a second opinion.
DENNIS KUCINICH ON CAMERA: I'm Dennis Kucinich and I�m running for president. Do I approve this commercial? You bet!
DENNIS KUCINICH VO: Buy American...or Bye-Bye America! NAFTA and the WTO have enriched multinational corporations while severely harming American workers. Today, it is impossible to pass "Buy American" laws. It is urgent we rebuild our industries and save American jobs. My first action as president will be to cancel NAFTA and the WTO!
FEMALE VO: With your vote Kucinich will create jobs, here in America.
DENNIS KUCINICH ON CAMERA: I'm Dennis Kucinich and I�m running for president. Do I approve this commercial? Every word!
