Republican Ed Gillespie releases new ad in Virginia gubernatorial race

In the ad, Gillespie reintroduces himself to voters in the Washington, D.C. suburbs


The  Washington Times has more details: 

In the “Boardroom” ad, Mr. Gillespie emphasizes his working-class roots and says he is running for governor so that all Virginians can “realize the American dream.”

“My grandfather worked in a corporate boardroom, but he never sat at a table like this,” Mr. Gillespie says in the ad, gesturing toward a long wooden conference room table. “He polished it — he was a janitor.”

Mr. Gillespie says he inherited that work ethic from his parents, who ran a small grocery store, and pushed him to do something they never did: Go to college.
