Second Netanyahu ad hits Florida’s airwaves in the final stretch of the election season, this time over Biden’s claim that he’s buddies with Netanyahu going back 39 years, Maggie Haberman reports:
I wrote a few weeks ago about the ads featuring only Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that were running in targeted markets in Florida, courtesy of the c4 Secure America Now.
The group is going up with another spot of the same variety starting tomorrow, on broadcast in West Palm Beach, Fort Myers and cable in Miami, with about $300,000 already placed, the group’s officials said.
The new spot is cued off the vice presidential debate last week.
“Several Secure America Now supporters who have known Netanyahu for many years were quite surprised to hear Joe Biden brag about being such a great pal of the Prime Minister,” said the spot’s producer, Nelson Warfield. “They thought Florida voters might like to hear directly from Biden’s old buddy about the need to finally get tough with Iran.”
