Ben Jealous launches Baltimore television ads in campaign for …

Democrat Ben Jealous on Tuesday became the first candidate running for Maryland governor to broadcast ads on all four major television stations in the Baltimore market, pitching himself as an accomplished activist.

His 60-second spot introduces himself to voters as a community organizer and a national civil rights leader who was the product of an interracial marriage that had been illegal in Maryland not long before he was born.

Jealous’ campaign spokeswoman Jerusalem Demsas said the campaign spent “nearly six figures” to go up on Baltimore television this week. They plan to remain on the air in the city until the June 26 primary and will begin airing ads in the Washington TV market within a few weeks.

Jealous, former chief of the NAACP, is the first Democrat in the crowded field to begin a sustained advertising push in the 2018 election. Jealous has drawn support from many progressive groups and the state’s teacher’s union, and has polled among the top candidates in the race.
