Quote from: Advertisement
We have shown throughout our history that we can overcome obstacles and achieve the impossible in this great country. We were the country that fought for public education. We were the country that landed a man on the moon. We were the country that claimed independence from the strongest empire in the world.

We have shown time and time again that we can achieve the impossible, and, for that reason, I ask you to join me in my bid to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

We will fight for education reform. We will fight income inequality. We will work tirelessly to bring our country into a new golden age, where no family will have to choose between paying the electric bill or the food bill, where no high school graduate will have to abandon their dreams of going to college, where no family must be split apart because they had dreams for their kids and decided to come to our country.

With your support...we can achieve the impossible.

Jerry Brown Ad - A Quick 15
This ad airs only in New Hampshire and Iowa

Img


"Because my campaign is funded by hard working Americans and not wealthy superdonors, I can only afford 15 seconds so I'll make this quick:

Corporate donors have dominated our politics for decades, and we see the results *graph shows declining middle class wages and increasing gini co-effecient*. As President, I will end their dominance by pushing a constitutional amendment, eliminating SuperPACs and PACs and making all campaigns publically financed. I'm Jerry Brown, and we can't have an honest discussion about what we want to with the future without getting rid of the special interests, and this is how we do it. Oh, and I approve this message."

Hi, I'm Donald Trump. For over 40 years I've been a businessman, entrepreneur and for even longer I've been a proud American. What I'm not proud of, though, is the way Washington's been handling it's job. I know you're not proud of it either. When Congress has an approval rating in the single digits, there's something terribly wrong. When I'm President, I'll cut the bull and make this great country work again like it should. All of those other candidates represent the same thing, send a message to Washington.

You're fired.

I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message.

Tammy Baldwin Ad: Rise Together
Running in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina

Img


"Hi, I'm Tammy Baldwin. The great thing about America is that, as a strong and unified country, when we suffer setbacks, we rise back up together.

That's why it doesn't quite make sense that after our economic collapse in 2008, our recovery has been concentrated mainly with the wealthiest few. Let's raise our minimum wage, create good-paying middle-class jobs in manufacturing and renewable energy, and put an end to job outsourcing. At the end of the day, if you work hard, and you play by the rules, you deserve a fair shake at your American dream. Join me, and let's bring this economic recovery to everybody."

Susana Martinez Ad: Uniting for Success
To run in Nevada, New Hampshire, and Colorado

Education reform has been on the bottom of the pile for the folks down in Washington for far too long when in reality it should be near the top if not on it. While congress lurches from deadline to deadline, schools keep failing, our teachers lose their jobs, and other countries continue to fly by us in educational standards. We need to take quick action to reverse that, by implementing sensible programs such as expanding federal school choice programs, helping tailor standards to the desires and constraints of each state, and devising tough but fair teacher evaluation suggestions for states to use to make certain our students are getting the best education possible. As your President, one of my top priorities will be uniting a bitterly divided congress for the good of our children and the good of this country by proposing and passing an education package aimed to put this country back on the forefront of educational innovation. 

I'm Susana Martinez, and I approve this message.

Bernie Sanders 2016
Bernie Sanders TV Ad "Vote"
Airing in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina

Female Narrator:In America, we're privileged to have the right to do something that so many around the world can't, decide who are voices are in government.

But in a time when an entire political party is attempting to suppress that sacred right in order to win elections by instituting voter ID laws that are intended to disenfranchise as many seniors, students, and minorities as possible so that they can enact their far right agenda, your vote is more important than ever.

So make sure to get out and vote.

But don't just vote, vote for the candidate that is committed to ensuring that our fundamental Democratic right is protected from extremist ideologues who are bent on giving further tax breaks to the wealthy while everyone else struggles. Vote for Senator Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders: I'm Bernie Sanders and I approve this message, because the billionaire class already have a seat at the table, it's time for the Middle and Working classes to have one as well.

Let the Battle Begin!/Cruzmentum?

With the first primaries of the nation only a couple of months away, the campaign is slowly but surely heating up. With that, interesting dynamics are playing out. The dominant but weakened Hillary Clinton has not-so-subtly jabbed her fellow Democratic opponents this past week, particularly targeting 2004 Democratic nominee John Kerry as unelectable and Senator Joe Manchin as anti-environment. Manchin has forcefully responded back to Clinton, though Kerry has remained silent on the matter. Every Democrat whose name is not Hillary Clinton is setting themselves up to be the anti-Clinton candidate by hopefully winning Iowa or New Hampshire. Among the candidates: The eclectic and experienced Jerry Brown showed off his quirky side again through a short memorable TV ad and is running an active campaign; democratic socialist gadfly Bernie Sanders is running to bring "a voice for the voiceless"; and Tammy Baldwin has set aside her sexuality in a notable interview and is running on issues important to the working class. Though Brian Schweitzer ended his bid earlier in the week, many Democrats still remain in the race.

Things would be a little slower over on the Republican side this week, though some noteworthy developments still came about. A noticeable tick has been seen in polls nationwide and across the early primary states for Ted Cruz, the bombastic Texas senator close to the Tea Party. Nationally, Cruz has surpassed Rand Paul for third place, and he is now virtually tied with Scott Walker in Iowa. Some partly attribute the rise to a recently released TV ad described as "powerful" and "one of the most effective this year." While it remains to be seen if this bump will stick, Cruz's ground game in Iowa is among the best in the field. Aside from Cruz, Jeb Bush is meeting voters and taking questions, Dan Quayle is reintroducing himself to the Republican electorate, Lindsey Graham gets an endorsement from 2008 nominee and close friend John McCain, and Donald Trump is polling surprisingly well in New Hampshire.

Statement by Baldwin Campaign

"Walter Mondale was a force to be reckoned with in Congress, always an unrivaled defender of working-class people and social justice in the United States of America," said Senator Baldwin, on hearing of the former Vice President's passing. "My heart is with his family and other loved ones as we all attempt to move forward in this time of grief and celebration of the Vice President's legacy."

I, on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, would like to express our sorrow at the passing of Vice-President Mondale. He was one of many people who I looked up to as Governor of Arkansas, and both the Democratic Party and America as a whole will be worse off with his passing.

Now I've heard candidates on both sides say we need to be off Middle Eastern Oil. They're half right. We need to be off oil, coal and all other fossil fuels, no matter where they come from in order for any being to survive into the future. Unfortunately, we have candidates on both sides- the Manchin's, Bushes, Cruzes and Quayle's of this country who are beholden to the fossil fuel industry and won't dream of seeking other ideas. We as Americans who value survival, need to reject that line of thought.

So, having been Secretary of State for four years, did you pick up a fanship for any International teams or athletes?

I'd like to say I just did my job, but I do admit to becoming a Rafa Nadal fan.

Do you believe that American professional sports is on the track in the fight against Performance enhancing drugs?

Usually, when someone is determined to cheat, there's usually no stopping them, but I'm amazed that John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzalez, Michael Mukasey, and Eric Holder didn't consider bringing charges against the players for steroid possession, which is illegal-or the owners who covered it up, which could have been considered Obstruction of Justice.

Do believe the NCAA is in the right, protecting Amateurism of their student-athletes?

No, and I'm not sure why we are using the term student-athlete, given that almost every school, these people are athletes first. While they probably shouldn't be making as much as a professional, you can call them a semi-pro, and as such they should be making, at the least, the minimum wage in their state per game-plus room and board.
