Casey’s new ad focuses on American steel and is aimed at a Pittsburgh audience

With a focus on the general election, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-Pa.) released a new announcement TV advertisement promoting its support for American steel. This is his first campaign ad since the April 23 primary election, when he officially won the Democratic nomination to defend his seat.

“Pennsylvania steel built America. Our bridges, buildings and city skyline,” says the voiceover at the beginning of the 30-second ad, first seen by Capital-Star. “But Yinz wouldn’t believe it. Our own government has turned its back on us.”

The ad goes on to detail how Chinese steel has been used to build infrastructure in the United States, but notes that Casey supported the bipartisan infrastructure bill signed by President Joe Biden and his administration instructions from April 2022 requiring federal infrastructure be constructed of American steel. A worker in a demanding hat says, “Take it, China.” At the end of the ad, Casey says he will “always stand up to China to protect American workers.”

Casey’s campaign told the Capital-Star the ad would do so launch a presence in the Pittsburgh, Scranton and Harrisburg media markets this week. Advertisements from the previous campaign continue to run across the Commonwealth.

Casey has released four TV commercials so far this cycle. His previous ads highlight the bipartisan legislation he sponsored benefits for veterans who were exposed to toxic burns and fight against huge corporations on ‘greedflation’ and ‘contraction’.

Republican David McCormick, who will challenge Casey for the seat in November, is also on the candidate list On the Pennsylvania airwaves since behind schedule March. In two television commercials, McCormick revealed his roots in detail struggle in the state AND lessons he learned after graduating from West Point and serving in the army.

Super PAC supporting McCormick’s candidacy announced the purchase of a television ad for $4 million on Wednesday.

Casey was endorsed by the United Steelworkers union for a fourth term McCormick also took the pledge fight for Pennsylvania steelworkers. Both candidates too they position themselves as hawks regarding U.S. policy toward China on trade and beyond.
