THE AD: “For and Against,” a 30-second TV commercial from the campaign of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray.

WHERE TO SEE IT: Statewide cable and broadcasts TV stations. The campaign did not disclose the size or cost of the buy.

IMAGES: Factories lying in ruins. Cordray standing outside the rusted gates of a closed factory, interspersed with images of Republican candidate Mike DeWine.

SCRIPT: (Cordray narrating). “You see this all over Ohio. And you know, the guy who supported trade deals that put hundreds of thousands of Ohio workers out of a job was the same guy who voted against job training programs that would have helped them get back on their feet. That guy was Mike DeWine. I’m Rich Cordray. As your attorney general, when companies tried to take jobs out of Ohio, I fought them and won and kept those jobs here. As your governor, I’ll do the very same thing.”

ANALYSIS: The Cordray campaign attempts to paint DeWine as harming Ohio’s blue-collar workers and being indifferent to their plight. DeWine voted for, and supported, numerous trade agreements while serving in the U.S. House and Senate, but was not in Congress when the North American Free Trade Agreement was approved. But, DeWine later said he supported NAFTA. DeWine supported tariffs that he said would help protect Ohio steel manufacturing jobs.
