Here’s why the Democrats’ 2020 announcements have been so bad.

Here’s why the Democrats’ 2020 announcements have been so bad.

This morning, Jamestown CEO Larry Weitzner sounded off in The Washington Examiner about why the 2020 Democratic primary candidates’ campaign launches have been so forgettable.

“In our social media-driven 24/7 political environment, authenticity is something candidates can’t afford to fake,” writes Weitzner, “but the Democrats’ crop of 2020 primary challengers are doing their very best.”

Larry was the lead ad maker on President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Click here to read his take in The Washington Examiner, and click below to see some of the award-winning television advertising Larry and Jamestown have produced for President Trump’s campaign.
