Clay Tippins, a former Navy SEAL running for governor in Georgia, made his video debut on television on Sunday with a 60-second campaign ad during the Super Bowl.
The ad for Republican Clay Tippins cost $250,000 and was played in the Albany, Columbus and Macon media markets, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The ad will be also be played Monday in Atlanta.
The ad focuses on Tippins’ upbringing and his career as a stand-out swimmer at Stanford University, and later a U.S. Navy SEAL. The ad shows lookalikes of his opponents flailing in a pool and staring at seals through binoculars.
The ad also praises Tippins’ business experience in helping build a multinational $500 million business while his opponents have business experience in professions such as making suit alterations.
“Georgia is the greatest state in America,” Tippins says in the video. “But why can’t all of our children read? Why is Atlanta still the sex-trafficking capital of the country? Why are we still running government pretty much the same way we did 50 years ago?”
“A 21st Century Georgia needs a 21st Century governor,” he adds.
