Abraham and Kenney launch new TV ads
On Monday, Former District Attorney Lynne Abraham and former City Councilman Jim Kenney both launched their first campaign-funded TV ads.
Kenney has had a handful of ads already paid for by third-party expenditure groups, which Abraham has loudly denounced.
State Sen. Anthony Williams also has PAC-paid ads, as well as one funded by his own campaign.
Last week, fellow candidate Doug Oliver also launched a slew of TV ads, radio promos, and even a billboard.
Abraham’s ad focuses on reforming the city’s education system, making a comparison to Kenney and Williams (the two closest to her in terms of competition).
Kenney’s ad (similar to Williams’) begins with his family legacy and then touches on the broader issues addressed in his mayoral campaign.
