Charles Booker Releases First TV Ad Calling for ‘New Politics’

Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Charles Booker is poised to release his first television advertisement of the campaign calling for “New Politics” that centers on solving the problems facing Kentucky such as prescription drug prices, inflation, and a tightening housing market rather than focusing on partisan divisions.

The ad, titled “Shared Dreams,” will be the campaign’s first ad of the General Election to go live on television as part of a statewide media buy slated to begin this week on television, digital media, and connected devices, according to the campaign.

“Kentucky, I know you’re frustrated. The strain on us is very real, but so too, is our strength,” Booker says in the new ad. “Our state motto is ‘United we stand, divided we fall.’ We won’t let them divide us anymore … We will win this Senate race. And I’m going to fight for you in Washington — Democrats, Republicans, and Independents; the people of Kentucky.”

The launch comes just after the 100-day mark until November’s U.S. Senate election in which Booker seeks to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul.
