Democrat Sharice Davids, running for Congress in KS-03, channels the passion and frustration of Americans in her inspiring first ad.
Watch out, Kevin Yoder. Sharice Davids is coming for your job, and she seems like kind of a badass. Yes, Sharice went to Cornell Law and was a White House Fellow. But did you know she also has a background as a professional Mixed Martial Arts competitor? She makes it very clear in her first ad that she intends to head to DC, kick ass & take numbers.
This is a brilliant commercial. In just one minute, Davids is able to paint herself as a person who has overcome adversity at every turn, and who has the experience, the intelligence and – most importantly – the heart, to challenge the powers that be in Washington – politicians who are doing everything they can to keep people in their place.
Davids wants to face off against Kevin Yoder, a highly vulnerable Republican in Kansas’ 3rd District. Yoder has six out of seven “risk factors” that signify vulnerability for GOP incumbents, as defined by Cook Political Report. First, she needs to win the Democratic nomination. The Kansas primary is August 7th.
