DES MOINES, Iowa – Ahead of an upcoming trip back to Iowa this weekend, U.S. Senator Tim Scott, on Wednesday, released two more ads for his presidential campaign that will air in the state. The new ads are part of an $8 million ad buy his campaign has made in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The first ad, Underdog, focuses on welfare reform and will air statewide.
“I’ve been an underdog all of my life,” Scott says in the ad. “Instead of looking for handouts or making excuses, I went to work and earned what I have. That’s the American way.”
“But Joe Biden and Kamala Harris believe in socialism, and victimhood. As President, I’ll eliminate their liberal spending and strengthen work requirements for welfare… because if you’re able-bodied in America, you work,” he added.
In the second ad, Parental Consent, Scott pledges to protect parental rights, and The Iowa Torch learned it will air statewide on Fox News and in the Sioux City market on broadcast TV.
“The Radical left acts like your kids are their kids. In schools today, rogue adults are changing kids genders behind parents’ backs. Planned Parenthood is performing abortions on teenage girls in secret, and Big Tech is addicting children to social media,” he says in the ad. “Two powerful words can stop the radical left dead in their tracks: Parental consent. As President, I’ll put moms and dads back in charge.”
Scott will make several stops in Iowa. Events include a town hall in Dubuque and a speech at the 23rd Annual Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition Fall Banquet in Des Moines on Saturday, then events in Nevada, Fort Dodge, and Mason City on Monday.
An average of polling in August and September among likely Iowa caucus goers has Scott polling in third place with an average of nine percent.
