(Pascagoula, Miss.) – Today, Sheriff Mike Ezell’s campaign for U.S. Congress launched a new television ad focusing on Sheriff Ezell’s experience and how he is the best-prepared candidate to address some of the biggest issues facing America right now.
In the ad, Sheriff Ezell says, “When politicians in Washington talk about defunding the police and open borders, they’ve lost touch with reality. I’m Sheriff Mike Ezell. As a law enforcement officer for over 40 years, I’ve dedicated my life to fighting crime, protecting our Constitutional rights and making communities safer. Now more than ever, we need someone in Congress with firsthand law enforcement experience. I’m Mike Ezell and I approved this message because I’ll show up, speak up and stand up for our conservative values—every day.”
Sheriff Ezell commented on the new TV ad saying, “Some of the biggest challenges facing our country right now are centered on the need for the rule of law and protecting our Constitutional rights. From the chaos and crisis on our southern border to the crime and drugs that are hurting so many communities across our country, it’s going to take someone in Congress with real law enforcement experience to tackle these issues that affect all of us. Our children and grandchildren deserve a better and safer future, and now is the time for action.’
