The ad was released a day early on Gov. John Kasich’s campaign website. It will air for the next two weeks in major TV markets, courtesy of a reported $350,000 media buy. Among those who’ve seen the ad – the team of his Democratic opponent Ed FitzGerald, led by Daniel McElhatton.

“It is trying to rebrand a governor who spent the last three years fighting a war against working families and offering policy prescriptions that did nothing to help everyday Ohioans better their lives.”

Like the Kasich campaign team, McElhatton also won’t confirm details of his candidate’s ad strategy, including when FitzGerald’s first TV ad will air – but he does say the coming ads will be “aggressive”.
