Raoul’s new ad blasts Harold over abortion rights

Friday, Sep 21, 2018

* Press release…

Today, Sen. Kwame Raoul’s campaign for Attorney General released a new television ad, “Banned,” highlighting his commitment to protecting a woman’s access to healthcare and Republican Erika Harold’s extreme position in favor of banning abortions, even in cases of rape and incest.

“At a time when a woman’s access to reproductive healthcare is under relentless attack, state attorneys general have become the last line of defense,” said Raoul. “As my record of public service reflects, I respect a woman’s choice and as attorney general, I will always protect her rights. My opponent’s extreme views make her a dangerous choice for women in Illinois.”

* The spot

* Script

You won’t believe what Erika Harold believes. Harold believes abortion should be banned, even in cases of rape and incest. And as Trump’s Supreme Court nominee threatens to overturn Roe v. Wade, Harold opposed the Illinois bill that would protect a woman’s right to choose.

Kwame Raoul believes in a woman’s right to choose. He’s always fought to keep a woman’s healthcare decisions between her and her doctor, and always will.

[Raoul]: I’m Kwame Raoul. This is the work of my life, and I’m just getting started.

    Ouch, that will sting in the suburbs.

    Did Kwame drop a “g” in the last sentence? I hope it isn’t contagious as I was hopeful we were about done with that.

    This is why Harold needed more ad time before Raoul somewhat effectively painted her as too extreme to be elected. I think I saw a Harold ad that had her crossing a street though. So that helped.

    “My opponent’s extreme views make her a dangerous choice for women in Illinois.”

    Raoul’s extreme views make him a dangerous choice for unborn children in Illinois.

    Good ad for the city and the collar counties.
    Erika has no response to this ad. Unless her previous endorsements and her previous questionnaire’s somehow disappear.
    With what’s going on in DC this will resonate to how close the left feels they are to losing Roe v Wade.

    “Raoul’s extreme views make him a dangerous choice for unborn children in Illinois.”

    Maybe Harold would run just that ad if she had the courage of her convictions.

    But she won’t.

    Cubs in ‘16…I guess this is an actual difference between candidate that things like elections are made to settle. Your views are no doubt heartfelt, but I suspect in the minority in Illinois.

    When Diana Rauner sees this ad, how do we think she’ll react to Bruce pouring more money into Harold’s campaign?

    Raul needs to pick another lane than the ones he has been using or he won’t get elected to the AG post.


  9. - downstate hack - Friday, Sep 21, 18 @ 2:44 pm:

    Raoul has nothing else to run on but accusing Erika of being extreme on the abortion issue. Typical democrat crap that has run this great State into the ground for the past twenty years

    Really?
    The debt increase by $10B in the past 3 years due to Rauner vetoing all but the last budget.
