Sri Kulkarni Launches 3rd TV Ad: ‘Choose To’

Third TV ad contrasts Kulkarni’s commitment to improving Texans’ health care with Nehls’ support for Trump’s dangerous effort to rip coverage away from millions

Sugar Land, TX — Today, Democrat Sri Preston Kulkarni launched his third TV ad in the race for Texas’s toss-up 22nd Congressional District. The ad, “Choose To” highlights Kulkarni’s commitment to expanding access to affordable health care, specifically by lowering prescription drug costs and protecting coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions.

The ad also exposes Republican candidate and Fired Cop Troy Nehls as a staunch opponent of health care, given his support for the lawsuit that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act and tear coverage from over 1.9 million Texans38,000 of whom live in TX-22

The new ad follows a new internal poll showing Kulkarni leading Nehls by five points—a lead that demonstrates steady growth in the polls for Kulkarni since August. As voters learn more about both candidates, they prefer Kulkarni. 

And, with Kulkarni’s dramatic fundraising advantage, he is set to significantly out-communicate Nehls in the final stretch, meaning advertisements like “Choose To” will continue to cement Kulkarni’s lead in these final two weeks. 

“Choose To” begins airing today on broadcast and cable as part of the Kulkarni campaign’s seven-figure buy in the Houston media market.



VO: Who is Troy Nehls fighting for? 

When Sheriff Troy Nehls gets to Washington, he’ll fight for President Trump’s agenda.

Nehls supports Trump’s lawsuit that would take health care from millions of Americans and eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions, including coronavirus. 

Sri Preston Kulkarni will protect coverage for pre-existing conditions, lower prescription drug costs, and defend your private health care. 

Sri: I’m Sri Preston Kulkarni, and I approve this message.
