Sydney Hay Debuts TV Ad Challenging Out-of-Step Congress

 “I’m Not Just Running For Congress, I‘m running Against Congress!”

First CD1 Congressional Candidate on Television


June 21, 2010  Munds Park – Sydney Hay, Republican candidate in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District, debuted the first of a series of TV commercials today.  In the commercial, available on the website and scheduled to begin airing on Sunday, with a radio version beginning Monday, Hay says:


“Our nation is in trouble because of  Washington. That’s why I’m not just running for Congress -- I’m running against Congress!”


Uniquely, Hay announces in the ad that she will discuss a specific issue each week and urges voters to contact her with their opinions. Even further, Hay gives her home phone number – 928-286-1128 – in the ad.


Comments Hay,


“Each week from now until election-day, I will announce my position on a key issue, give a unique way to confront the issue, and I will challenge the incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick on the issue. Voters want and deserve to know what the difference will be if  I’m their Congresswoman rather than being represented by Congresswoman Kirkpatrick. There are huge differences between us and I want to ensure voters understand that.”


The Sydney Hay for Congress campaign believes this is the first time a Congressional candidate has publicized their home number in a TV ad. Hay said,


“If  I’m elected by the voters in CD1, I will work for them, and I won’t forget it. So it’s right that my employers have the home phone number of their employee.”


The ad ends with the tag line of: “It’s time to get Out-of-Touch Incumbents out of Congress!”
