TJ Cox for Congress Releases New TV Ad: “Lit A Fire”

October 3, 2020

Today, TJ Cox for Congress released a new ad, “Lit A Fire.” The ad highlights the story of Daniel Flores, a veteran who served in our Armed Forces in Iraq and around the world.

Mr. Flores was billed for medical procedures and doctor’s visits that the Department of Veterans Affairs refused to pay for. Congressman Cox advocated for Mr. Flores and got the VA to cover the bills and fulfill its promise to repay Mr. Flores the medical benefits he earned serving our country.

Since joining Congress, Cox has fought to support veterans in everything from ensuring access to health care to modernizing VA online records management. He even wrote a letter to make sure veterans living with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) had access to long-term care. TJ Cox continues to fight for the vulnerable, the overlooked, and the underserved. 

“Lit A Fire” will air on broadcast in the Fresno and Bakersfield markets and stream online throughout California’s 21st Congressional District.

The Ad 

FLORES: “After serving all around the world and in Iraq, I was very proud to serve my country and at the end, it just took a toll. 

“After surgeries and doctor visits they stuck me with a $20,000 bill, and the VA gave me the runaround and they just refused to pay. 

“So I reached out to TJ Cox, and he lit a fire under them. 

“He grabbed the bull by the horn, and he made sure that everything that was owed to me was taken care of, and that was amazing.

“TJ Cox stood up for me when it really mattered.

“TJ Cox does care about every veteran here in the Central Valley.”

COX: “I’m TJ Cox, and I approve this message.”

TJ Cox is running for reelection to Congress in California’s 21st District. He is a family man, engineer and small businessman with a passion for community development. TJ is married to Kathleen Murphy, MD, a pediatric intensive care physician. They are the proud parents of four children.
