Simplicity rules. Clear and straightforward political ad – “The truth.”
Aren’t you tired of politicians who when one asks them a simple question, give you long “thoughtful” answer and in the end, you’re more confused than before? Ralph Abraham’ is not one of them. We can agree or don’t agree with the statements presented in his latest ad, but there’s no doubt in my mind that people who saw it could quickly determine what Abraham’s views are.

- Life begins at conception.
- Government is too big.
- Our taxes are too high.
- Our car insurance is too expensive.
- President Trump is doing a great job.
- Facts matter more than feelings.
- The Second Amendment is self-explanatory.
- There are only two genders.
When looking at the reaction on the internet, his ad is doing pretty well, drawing lots of attention to his campaign, (a couple of examples below).

It looks like “Life begins at conception” and “There are only two genders” statements really hit a nerve.
Of course, I see that these articles are not exactly full of unconditional support for Abraham, but this is what we should expect to find on the first page of Google searches when looking for a conservative politician. What’s crucial is that his name is all over the place and his potential voters are smart enough to figure out what the man is standing for. Besides, it doesn’t hurt that all that hard work by progressives helping to create publicity for Abraham’s gubernatorial campaign is free. Free is good and if it comes to leftists, they were always very good at giving free stuff away.
