“Where I come from, we flew towards the fight. Career politicians run from it.”Mike Garcia
Valencia, CA – The Mike Garcia for Congress campaign today released the first ad of the November general election. “Run” highlights Mike Garcia’s family’s history as first generation Americans and his service as a Navy fighter pilot, flying over 30 combat missions.
The ad draws a sharp contrast between Garcia’s status as a political outsider who served for 19 years in the United States Navy versus that of career politicians who run from the hard fights.
My dad is a first-generation Mexican-American who immigrated here when he was nine years old.
My stepfather’s stories from Vietnam set me on my path to the Naval Academy.
I ended up flying over 30 combat missions.
My service didn’t end when I stepped out of the cockpit for the last time.
I’m a fighter pilot and not a career politician.
Where I come from, we flew towards the fight.
Career politicians run from it.
I’m Mike Garcia and I approve this message.
