Gregg Unveils First Campaign Ad
INDIANAPOLIS – Gubernatorial candidate John Gregg unveiled his first campaign ad this morning. The ad, entitled “Hobo,” features Gregg and some longtime friends from his hometown of Sandborn, Indiana. Hobo is the nickname of John’s close friend Wesley Cook who is fighting a battle against cancer.
The ad is 30 seconds and will begin airing immediately. It will air on broadcast and cable throughout Indiana. It can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uMT9YrEZiI&feature=g-upl
Gregg points out in his ad that he thinks political ads are “pretty silly.” So rather than the usual hackneyed approach, Gregg will be telling the stories of the people of Sandborn throughout his campaign, and will be showing how they will influence the kind of governor he will be.
"I grew up in Sandborn and I still live there with my two boys. My parents still live there, too. It's a town of 300 people and every one of those folks had something to do with making me the person that I am today,” said Gregg.
Hobo, a childhood friend of John’s, is the focal point of how John sees Hoosiers and the place for community in all of our lives. “Frank, Jerry, and Hobo are some of my closest friends and all of us in Sandborn are rooting for Hobo in his fight against cancer."
“I am honored that so many of my friends and neighbors wanted to be in the ads," Gregg added. "I thought it was important for the people of Indiana to have an idea about where I came from, what I believe and what I want for Indiana's future.”
