TV Ads that Helped Blue Candidates Win

Kathy Dahlkemper for Erie County Executive: “Baby”

In 2010, Pennsylvania Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper was soundly defeated. In 2013, she fired her media consultant and hired Main Street. Despite being outspent by 2:1, we used a mix of positive, negative and comparative ads to help her defeat incumbent Erie County Executive Barry Grossman 52%-48%. Four years later, Dahlkemper was easily re-elected.


In 2012, U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) was redistricted by the Republicans into an R+13 district -- and forced to pick up more than 350,000 new constituents in a different media market. Despite being outspent on the independent expenditure side by more than $1 million, McIntyre won the closest U.S. House race in the nation -- by 551 votes out of more than 337,000 cast. This ad was one of the many comparative ads we used to distinguish him from his GOP opponent.
