“I want to repeal ObamaCare … right away. It’s bad for our families and for our economy,” he said. “On illegal immigration, I support stronger borders, not amnesty. I also favor tax cuts, a balanced budget, and supporting our veterans. My opponent wants to win this for Washington. I’m in it to win it for Pinellas.”

Jolly’s Democratic opponent, Alex Sink, also launched a new ad on Wednesday. It featured her dad saying Sink had a “stubborn” insistence on running for Congress.

Jolly and Sink are running for the seat left open by the late Rep. Bill Young (R), who died in October after serving 42 years in Congress.

Young’s widow, Beverly Young, said her husband had asked Jolly to run from his deathbed.

Sink leads in the race in fundraising numbers, having not touched the more than $1 million she had on hand for a primary that never happened for lack of challengers.

The special election is March 11.
