Obama’s campaign: We’re getting ‘real’ gas from ‘real people’
The Hill article President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is getting “real” gas from real people, according to an ad that the campaign released Thursday.
The spot features a group of people who can’t drive because of illness, but then one of them gives up on driving.
The campaign said it is “a true grassroots effort to show the American people that we care about them.”
The spot will run in Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire on Thursday.
“We’re getting real, and that’s because of the work of people like you,” one woman says, as she gets out of her car and gives up.
“You know, we have real problems.
We’re in debt, and we’re desperate.
We need real help.”
The ad also highlights Obama’s support from veterans, saying: “They have done everything they can.
They’re working, and now they’re ready to get back to work.
So if you’ve got a job, and you’ve earned a paycheck, it’s time to get out there and make America work again.”
The campaign also said it has added 400,000 paid staffers since the election, including 1,000 more in Ohio.
The president is scheduled to visit Ohio on Friday.
The Ohio ad will be aired at 10 p.m. on national television and in Ohio on Thursday and Friday.
