GOP’s Gibbs Releases First TV Ad In Michigan’s 3rd District US House Race

John Gibbs, the Republican nominee running for Congress in western Michigan’s competitive 3rd US House District, launched his first TV ad on Tuesday touting his Ivy League education and work history.

The 30-second ad shows Gibbs sitting on a couch with his mother, Mary Gibbs. He says he told her the campaign was a commercial, “and she insisted on taking part.”

“My son is too modest. John is a hard worker. The first in the family to go to college – Stanford and Harvard,” she says. “The most important thing is that he is an honest man. I know my son will finally bring sanity to Washington.”

Gibbs’ mother also says he is “a successful businessman,” referring to his time as a software engineer for Silicon Valley companies, including Apple Inc., campaign spokesman AnneMarie Schieber said.

The ad will run this week during the elections on November 8. Schieber declined to say how much the campaign spends on broadcast ads.

Gibbs, 43, most recently served as an appointee of former President Donald Trump at the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, before serving as a Christian missionary in Japan for seven years.
