Burr For Senate Releases New TV Ad: "Kirby" | Eastern North Carolina Now

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     The Burr campaign today will begin airing its first TV ad of the general election, "Kirby" as part of the initial $5.1 million buy previously announced in June. In case you missed it, Time Warner Cable News featured the ad exclusively on Capital Tonight yesterday evening. The spot features Pastor Kirby Jones, an African-American pastor who leads the Raleigh based Daniel Center for Math and Science, giving a firsthand account of Senator Burr's efforts to improve the quality of life for children in North Carolina. The Daniel Center utilizes federal child care subsidies, an area where Senator Burr plays a leading role in the Senate.

    In the ad, Kirby states his organization's goal is to "narrow the education gap...for at risk and economically disadvantage children," and shares just how impactful Richard Burr has been in his efforts in the Senate. "Richard has done a great deal to help the children and their families get on path and a trajectory that leads to academic success and life success," Kirby adds.

    "I have long fought for education opportunities for low-income families and their children because I believe it is the way to a better life," said Senator Burr. "I was proud to have been the leader in passing bipartisan child care legislation in 2014 that expanded opportunities for North Carolina's families, increased affordability of child care, and improved the quality of education overall."

    Watch the ad here.


    PASTOR KIRBY JONES: I trust and believe in Richard Burr.

    Our organization has as its mission to narrow the education gap in math, science, and technology for at-risk and economically disadvantaged children.

    Richard has done a great deal to help the children and their families get on a path and a trajectory that leads to academic success and life success.

    He is genuinely interested in our community, in our children.

    Thank you Richard Burr, for helping the families and children of North Carolina.
