- Republican Aaron Bean released his second campaign ad for CD 4
- The ad, titled “20 Seconds,” lists President Joe Biden’s failures since taking office
- Bean represents Senate District 4, which includes Nassau County and parts of Duval County
With the inflation rate soaring to 9.1% in June, Republican Aaron Bean dropped a new campaign ad Wednesday making it clear that he isn’t sold on President Joe Biden.
Bean, a state senator and part-time auctioneer, dropped his second ad in his campaign for Florida’s 4 Congressional District. The TV spot, titled “20 Seconds,” sees the Fernandina Beach Republican put his skills to the test as he rattles off a list of Biden’s failures in 20 seconds.
“Is it possible to list all of Joe Biden’s failures in just 20 seconds?” a narrator asks. “Meet Aaron Bean, lifelong conservative, part-time auctioneer. Let’s watch.”
“Massive inflation crisis, border crisis, spending crisis, killed Keystone, blocked drilling, hiked prices, turned energy independence into ‘energy nightmare.’ Worsening gas prices, food prices, car prices, home prices,” Bean starts out before displaying a ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ shirt.
“Even prices for these little numbers,” adds Bean.
“More chaos abroad, more crime at home, mask mandates, vax mandates, indoctrination in our schools, not to mention,” Bean continues before being cut off by the voice-over that says the list is too long.
His campaign says the ad will run concurrently with his first ad, “Best Days,” which has been airing on broadcast television, cable and CTV in the Jacksonville market.
“Even as a part-time auctioneer, I can’t list all the failures of Biden and our liberal government in just 20 seconds – the list is far too long,” Bean said in a statement following the video’s release. “We’re now at a 40-year high for inflation, and Americans need relief and leaders that will take the necessary steps to decrease inflation.
“As gas prices skyrocket and the cost of groceries, school supplies and anything that is transportation reliant for delivery to store is impacted, we cannot afford liberal governance any longer,” added Bean. “That is why I’m running for Congress – to change the disastrous course that liberal governance and policies have put us on by cutting wasteful spending, lowering taxes and enhancing our American domestic energy sources.”
Bean’s campaign has been on a roll lately, picking up endorsements from a host of elected officials, lawmakers, sheriffs, and local leaders. Last week, 18 district leaders backed his campaign. He also boasts endorsements from U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Attorney General Ashley Moody, Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, State Reps. Wyman Duggan and Clay Yarborough, Jacksonville Sheriff Pat Ivey, Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper, as well as a host of other local leaders.
Bean, the current President Pro Tempore, represents Senate District 4, which includes Nassau County and parts of Duval County. He was elected to the Florida Senate in 2012 after serving in the House from 2000 to 2008.
Bean officially launched his campaign for CD 4 last month. His only opposition for the Republican nomination is Navy veteran and businessman Erick Aguilar.
CD 4, a redrawn district, encompasses all of Clay and Nassau counties, as well as part of Duval County.
