TJ Cox for Congress Releases TV Ad: “For Us”

October 23, 2020

Today, TJ Cox for Congress released a new ad, “For Us,” which highlights Cox’s experience of listening to voters across the Valley and delivering on issues like water infrastructure and Covid-19 relief for small businesses and working families.

Since joining Congress, Cox has focused on Valley priorities and delivered on those promises. Chief among his accomplishments: securing record funding for water projects that will support farmers and disadvantaged communities.

“For Us” will air on broadcast in the Fresno market and stream online throughout California’s 21st Congressional District.


The Ad 

I’m a farmer,

I’m from Hanford,

and I’m a Republican,

and we’re sick of politics as usual.

But TJ Cox is different.

Water is a big problem here, so TJ went to bat for us,

got our fair share of water projects for the Central Valley to help farmers and TJ helped workers hurt by the Coronavirus.

TJ’s for me 

and me 

and all of us.

I’m TJ cox and I approve of this message; because we’ll always do the hard work, all we need is a fair shot
