MUNCIE, IN – Congressional GOP candidate for Indiana’s 6th District Jonathan Lamb has released a series of television commercials that take on a distinctly public-service approach.
“We’re attempting to focus tightly on the issues that matter and we’re trying to get the conversation started. I can’t say much in 15 or even 30 seconds but I can introduce a thought, a theme, something I know our district cares about,” Lamb said. “The issues I bring up are among the ones I’ll be laser-focused on once I get to Congress.”
The “this is your brain on drugs-style” public service announcement campaign of the late 1980s, addresses issues like border security, special interest groups taking over Washington, the national debt, and the plague of Washington insiders. The commercials will air throughout the district on both broadcast and cable outlets, as well as via social media channels.
“Congress and Washington, D.C. are failing the American people and Indiana families,” Lamb says. “Special interests and career politicians are pushing bad policies without any real-world experience in running businesses or creating jobs. Washington insiders are calling the shots and that’s not getting the job done anymore. We need people in Congress who won’t be influenced by anyone or anything except what’s in the best interest of Hoosiers.”
Lamb, 36, an eighth-generation Hoosier, is an economist and entrepreneur who owns two Muncie-based businesses and has owned and grown seven different businesses across the country. “I know what it’s like to balance a budget; how to make hard choices. Our national debt is out of control.”
Lamb said his commercial messaging is designed to signal to voters that he knows what is at stake and he’s willing to take on the toughest issues.
