Gay Progressive Running For Congress in New Mexico Runs “Fuck The NRA” Commercial on Television

Fuck the NRA!

Pat Davis a former police officer and openly gay man from New Mexico running for Congress has started running a unique television spot for himself where he lays it all on the line saying “Fuck the NRA” and promising change if he is elected to Congress.

The Huffington Post reports:

A Democratic congressional candidate is out with a new TV ad using far more explicit language than the usual political spot. “Fuck the NRA,” Pat Davis says in the 15-second ad. “Their pro-gun policies have resulted in dead children, dead mothers and dead fathers.”

Davis is an Albuquerque city council member running for the Democratic nomination in New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District, and his provocative spot is an attempt to distinguish himself in his crowded primary.

It’s a six-way contest, and fellow Democrats Deb Haaland and former U.S. attorney Damon Martinez are considered the front-runners. If Haaland wins, she would become the first Native American woman elected to Congress.

The ad  ran yesterday on Albuquerque’s CBS affiliate with an “inappropriate language” warning. The station’s manager says they were forced to run the ad as-is because by law they are not permitting to censor or edit political ads.
