AD15 candidate Wilson releases his first TV ad

Following quickly on the heels of AD15 Democratic nominee Joan Buchanan, Republican candidate Abram Wilson has released his first television advertisement.

Abram Wilson’s commercial is a warm and positive message about his investment banking background,  his time as mayor of San Ramon and his roots as the son of school teachers. Buchanan unveiled her first commercial a few days ago.

Both candidates have stayed positive in the campaign so far.

We’ll see how long that lasts. Historically in this district, the campaigns have engaged in serious mud-slinging. This year has the potential to be even more toxic. The termed-out incumbent, Guy Houston, is the last Republican in the Bay Area to hold a partisan elected office. Meanwhile, Democrats have taken a slight party registration lead in the district and it is one of the few competitive Assembly seats in California.

TV isn’t cheap in this district, either, which stretches across several major media markets. Here’s his commercial:

    I know Abram himself does not like negative campaigns and will avoid doing so. I think he and Joan have known each other a long time and do not want the debate to degenerate. That said nothing can stop their friends from doing what they want. The developers (Abram) or the unions (Joan) will work their collective will.
    And of course journalists love the dirt because it gives them something to write about.

    It’s over for Wilson. He’s robo calling. Boo.
