WATCH: New Fitzpatrick Ad Highlights Experience, Need for Congress to Work Together

DOYLESTOWN, PABrian Fitzpatrick, former FBI special agent and federal prosecutor, announced histhird television advertisement of the general election Tuesday. The advertisement, entitled “Needed the Most,” highlight’s Fitzpatrick’s background as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney who prosecuted drug crimes and an FBI Supervisory Special Agent sent to Iraq to fight terrorists, as well as the need for Congress to work together to keep Americans safe.
“Brian Fitzpatrick has made protecting American families his life’s work – from keeping drugs off our streets to combating terrorists at home and abroad. Now Brian’s running for Congress to cut through the partisan gridlock and use his experience to make sure Washington’s top priority is keeping us safe,” said Aaron Clark, spokesman for the Fitzpatrick campaign. “While partisan politicians like Steve Santarsiero are comfortable making careers out of scoring political points and cashing in on taxpayer-funded perks, Brian Fitzpatrick is ready to continue his service to his community as a proven, independent voice for the people of Bucks and Montgomery counties – regardless of political affiliation.”
When elected to Congress, Fitzpatrick has announced he will join the No Labels Caucus – a bipartisan group of legislators committed to finding solutions and fixing problems, not fighting.
Over the past month, Brian Fitzpatrick’s campaign has picked up a series of high-profile endorsements including from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB),Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and Pennsylvania Professional Fire Fighters Association (PPFFA/IAFF). Last week, Fitzpatrick announced a record-setting Q3 fundraising total of over $740,000 – the highest total of any non-incumbent candidate in PA-8 history.
The advertisement is a six-figure TV buy.
“Sometimes I think Congress doesn’t understand that their top priority isn’t to argue with each other, it’s to keep your family safe.
I know because keeping your family safe has been my life’s work. As a federal prosecutor, I put away drug dealers and violent criminals. And, as an FBI agent, I worked counter-terrorism investigations and was sent to Iraq to confront terrorists face-to-face.
Now, I’m running for Congress so I can take my experience protecting your family to the place where it’s needed the most.  
I’m Brian Fitzpatrick and I approve this message.”
