State Insurance Commissioner and Republican candidate for Baltimore County executive Al Redmer Jr. is continuing to play up his endorsement from Gov. Larry Hogan, appearing with the governor in a new digital ad in advance of the June primary.
The ad is brief and shows Hogan sitting next to Redmer, smiling.
“Please vote for my friend Al Redmer for Baltimore County executive on June 26,” the governor says in the 10-second spot.
The ad targets likely Republican voters, according to the Redmer campaign. It will appear on Facebook and on websites visited by targeted voters.
It is the first video ad released by any of the candidates in the county executive race. Redmer and state Del. Pat McDonough are facing off in the Republican primary.
There are three leading Democrats in the race: County Councilwoman Vicki Almond, state Sen. Jim Brochin and Johnny Olszewski Jr., a former state delegate.
Hogan endorsed Redmer early on in the race. Two weeks ago, they appeared together on a tour of businesses in downtown Towson.
