South Dakota Draft Jeb Bush Group Releases TV Ad
House Assistant Majority Leader Shoots Ad Using iPhone
Sioux Falls, SD— May 15, 2015 — Today Rep. Steve Westra (R-SD) announced the release of a television ad urging Governor Jeb Bush to run for President. This is the first such ad by a South Dakota group for the 2016 election cycle. Rep. Westra, assistant South Dakota majority leader, along with eight other South Dakota state legislators formed the volunteer South Dakotans for Jeb Bush group earlier this year.
“Our draft Jeb Bush push has support across South Dakota, and we are pleased with the hundreds of South Dakotans that have come forward to urge Jeb Bush to run,” said Westra. “Jeb Bush shares the values of South Dakotans. From his support of a smaller less intrusive Federal government, protection of our Second Amendment rights, to lower taxes for small businesses and families, Jeb Bush will represent South Dakota values.”
The South Dakotans for Jeb Bush group has created a Facebook page that has gathered hundreds of names of South Dakotans that are urging Jeb Bush to run for the presidency of the United States. “This South Dakota group was the first in the nation formed to urge Jeb Bush to run for the office of the President,” said Westra.
The television ad was filmed entirely using an iPhone 6 plus using volunteers to assist in the production of the advertisement. This is the first time a South Dakota political ad was shot using an iPhone only. South Dakotans for Jeb Bush has set up a Facebook site at www.facebook.com/sdforjeb with over 500 names accumulated to date. The group will be sending Jeb Bush the names of South Dakotans that were early supporters of his campaign.
