AZ Senate candidate releases Super Bowl campaign ad and liberals are losing their minds over it [VIDEO]

Arizona’s Jim Lamon, who is running for the Senate, just released a new campaign ad for the Super Bowl and liberals are already losing their minds over it.


Personally I love the ad. I don’t know anything about Lamon, but I think it’s a fun ad and there’s nothing controversial about it in my opinion.

But according to The Hill, liberals (and at least one Republican) are racing to condemn it:

Arizona Senate candidate Jim Lamon’s campaign released a Super Bowl ad on Thursday depicting him in armed “showdown” with Democratic leaders including incumbent Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly (D).

The 30-second ad features actors depicting Kelly, President Biden, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“The good people of Arizona have had enough of you, it’s time for a showdown,” Lamon, who plays himself in the ad, says.

The Democratic figures then draw their weapons and Lamon shoots at them, prompting them to run away.

The ad immediately prompted backlash online, given that Kelly’s wife, former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot during an assassination attempt in 2011. Giffords suffered a severe brain injury as a result and has since become one of the most prominent gun-control activists in the country.

“DISGUSTING: Former Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot and seriously wounded 10 years ago. Her husband’s Republican US Senate opponent, [Jim Lamon], just put out an ad in which he shoots Mark Kelly and other Democrat leaders,” tweeted Shannon Watts, founder of the gun control group Moms Demand Action.

The former executive director of the Arizona Republican Party, Brian Murray, called Lamon’s ad his “most pathetic ad” yet.

“I think when he loses he should start producing used car commercials. He’s perfect for that, and that ain’t no bull!” Murray said in a tweet.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) also reacted to the tweet.

“Republicans don’t have any ideas to help you. And they can’t win elections. So they’ve gone all in on using violence as a path to power. RT if you’re choosing #VotesOverViolence this Fall,” Swalwell said in his own tweet.

Lamon doesn’t shoot ‘Biden’ or ‘Pelosi’ or ‘Kelly’, he simply shoots their weapons out of their hands in the ad.

It’s an old west style showdown and these idiots criticizing it need to get a life. This has nothing to do with Gabby Giffords being shot. It’s just a fun political metaphor.

That’s my opinion, what’s yours?
