Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby releases her first TV commercial, "Fighter"

A day before early voting in the Democratic primary election is set to begin, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby on Wednesday released her first television ad, called “Fighter.”

Longtime Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings narrates the 30-second ad. He touts Mosby’s 92 percent felony conviction rate and says she has convicted every Public Enemy No. 1. The ad shows Mosby walking down the steps of the Baltimore War Memorial building three years ago to announce charges against six officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

“When the stakes were the highest, Marilyn Mosby was there for us,” Cummings says. “Now we have to be there for her.”

The commercial is currently being played on both cable and broadcast networks.

Mosby is running for re-election against defense attorney Ivan Bates and Thiru Vignarajah, a former city prosecutor deputy attorney general of Maryland. All three are Democrats, so the race will be decided by the primary election June 26.
