January 18, 2011

Chicago mayoral candidate Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins launched her second TV commercial of the campaign on Tuesday. The 60 second spot emphasizes Watkins personal story, as well as her approach to education, job creation and transportation.

The ad was produced by the Chicago-based firm Sparkfactor and will run exclusively on cable - including local buys of CNN, FOX, HLN, MSNBC and USA, according to campaign spokesperson Sara Sedlacek. 

Sedlacek said that Watkins had raised $535,000 during the last quarterly reporting period.  The latest state financial disclosure reports are due on Thursday.
