The teens running former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel’s presidential campaign have made their first national television ad buy, a scathing anti-Joe Biden spot set to air Friday during one of MSNBC’s popular political talk shows.
“Is this the best our party has to offer?” the ad’s text reads, as footage highlights the current 2020 front-runner’s prior positions on criminal justice, the Iraq War, and reproductive rights. The minute-long spot ends with a picture of the 89-year-old Gravel smiling and holding a dove, an appeal to send him to the next Democratic debate at the end of July.
The ad is scheduled to run during Friday’s edition of Deadline: White House, a 4 p.m. hour political panel show hosted by Nicolle Wallace. That MSNBC program, seen largely as a bastion of centrist and “Never Trump” punditry, has beaten its CNN and Fox News competitors in total viewership over the past several months.
