Ad Wars: Lamont, Stemerman, and Stefanowski Up on Television

Three of the eight major gubernatorial candidates are out with new television ads in the past few days, as the jockeying for who will make it to November continues.

Three businessmen running to be Connecticut’s next governor – Democrat Ned Lamont, and Republicans David Stemerman and Bob Stefanowski – all went up on the air this week with new ads designed to pitch their credentials to voters.

Lamont, who needs less of an introduction to Connecticut voters given his statewide runs in 2006 and 2010, released a simple ad on Wednesday. It features 30 seconds of him addressing voters as he drives a car.

Stemerman’s ad is a bit flashier. It features a Malloy lookalike driving a literal wrecking ball into a logo of General Electric, which left the state for Massachusetts under Dan Malloy’s tenure.

Stefanowski also goes with a construction theme, but on the positive side of things. He claims he can be “Bob the Rebuilder.”

Republican and Democratic primaries for governor are August 14.
