Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Super Bowl commercials tonight in the state of Michigan?
Answer: Rick Snyder’s “One Tough Nerd” campaign advertisement.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Snyder is giving his campaign a boost by running his first campaign ads during Sunday’s widely watched Super Bowl.
The 60-second spot will air statewide for several weeks and will be the first gubernatorial ad to run in Michigan this campaign cycle. The campaign would not disclose how much it’s spending.
Snyder is a political newcomer who so far is polling in single digits. He hopes the early ads will jump-start his candidacy among voters who know little about him.
Other gubernatorial candidates have not said when they’ll begin running ads.
Props to Rick Snyder for putting out this advertisement on Super Bowl Sunday. Since Snyder is trailing in the polls, this will advertisement will definitely get some name recognition out there for his campaign. Other Republican candidates include Mike Bouchard, Peter Hoekstra, and Mike Cox.
It’s official, the race for Michigan’s next Governor is starting to heat up!
