Phil Arballo Drops First Ad, “Killing Us,” in CA-13 Primary

Makes Six-Figure Ad Buy in Highly Competitive Central Valley District

Fresno, CA— Last week Democrat Phil Arballo launched his first TV ad of the cycle for California’s new 13th Congressional district. “Killing Us” details Adam Gray’s career-long commitment to protecting the corporate profits of big oil and supporting Donald Trump’s deregulation of environmental standards.

Arballo has gained momentum over the past two weeks, locking in key endorsements from CHC BOLD PAC, Latino Victory Fund, California Environmental Voters, and the oldest Democratic club in California, the Fresno County Democratic Women’s Club.

Produced by DK Strategies, Arballo has committed to a six-figure ad buy over the coming weeks.

On the release of his first ad Phil Arballo stated:

“Central Valley voters deserve to know the truth about who is running to represent them. The fact of the matter is that Adam Gray has sold out our communities for over a decade so that cash can flow for corporations and special interests. We need a representative who will stand with working families and fight for our best interests, not those of their corporate donors.”
