(The hill) – A Republican candidate running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania plans to air a campaign ad featuring chants of “Let’s go Brandon” during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The announcement by candidate David McCormick features text highlighting issues that have dogged the Biden administration, including the US military’s exit from Afghanistan and rising inflation against the backdrop of crowds chanting ‘Let’s go Brandon’ .
McCormick told Fox Newswho was first to report on the announcement, that the purpose was to highlight the “self-inflicted” issues that have plagued the Biden administration over the past year.
“Whether it’s not being able to afford gas or groceries due to record inflation, rampant crime in our cities, a dramatic spike in fentanyl trafficking and human exploitation across open borders, or the shameful lack of accountability for the deaths of 13 young servicemen in Afghanistan – these issues were self-inflicted by Joe Biden and extreme leftist politics,” McCormick said. “Pennsylvanians have had enough.”
McCormick’s 30-second commercial will air during Super Bowl LVI as the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
McCormick is running in a crowded GOP primary to replace the retired Republican senator. Pat Toomey.
Another GOP Senate candidate in Arizona also used the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” in a campaign ad which took place during the College Football Playoff championship game last month.
