“Ralph Northam didn’t show up. He doesn’t deserve a promotion,” the narrator of the ad says.
Conservative group Americans for Prosperity (AFP) released a new ad hitting Democratic candidate for governor, Ralph Northam, for missing meetings that eventually led to a fake Chinese company receiving a $1.4 million grant from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership.
The ad, titled, “Ralph Northam Didn’t Do His Job,” is part of AFP’s multimillion-dollar campaign in the state and is “backed by a seven-figure TV and digital ad blitz,” according to Politico.
The ad starts with, “Listen up Virginia,” appearing on screen.
“Don’t show up for work? You’d get fired. Waste a million bucks? You’d get fired. Unless you’re a politician like Ralph Northam.,” the narrator of the ad says. “Ralph Northam missed nearly 60 percent of meetings for a board that could have prevented cronyism and corruption.”
“Instead, he let a fake Chinese company with a false address and phony website take $1.4 million of our money,” the ad says. “Ralph Northam didn’t show up he doesn’t deserve a promotion.”
Northam is locked in a close race with Republican candidate for governor, Ed Gillespie according to the most recent polling.
