Sharice Davids' new TV ad focuses on life story

By Danielle Robinson

Sharice Davids, front runner for the Democratic nomination in Kansas’ Third District Congressional race, has released her a new television ad.

The 30-second spot, which began airing on both cable and broadcast networks today, focuses on Davids’ inspiring life story. From Johnson County Community College to Cornell Law School. From a waitress to the Obama White House. Davids has overcome significant odds to sit at the highest levels of our federal government.

“Too many people today have the odds stacked against them and Republicans in Washington aren’t working to change that,” Davids said. “I’m running for Congress because everyone deserves an opportunity - and that starts with affordable healthcare, safe communities, and quality education.”

The ad chronicles Davids’ upbringing by a single mother through her time as a White House Fellow in the Obama administration, overcoming many barriers along the way. As a recent endorser said, “David’s life story has all the hallmarks of the dreams our community has for all our children.”

Davids’ primary election will be held on Aug. 7.
