John Delaney Goes on the Air in Maryland

Posted February 15, 2012 at 1:18pm

Wealthy businessman John Delaney is on the air with his first TV ad in the race for the Democratic nomination in Maryland’s 6th district.

The $91,000 ad buy will run district wide on cable and broadcast TV and is a biographical spot noting that his father was a union electrician. Delaney has a self-made fortune, and the ad is clearly an attempt to expand his image beyond that of a wealthy businessman.

Roll Call rates the 6th district race as Leans Democratic. The seat, currently held by  Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R), was dramatically redrawn to favor Democrats. Read more on Bartlett’s fight in his first competitive race in years in today’s Roll Call.
