This Adorably Honest Ad For A Local Election In Texas Has Gone Viral

Posted: Oct 25, 2016 10:30 AM

This election cycle has been one full of mud-slinging and nastiness, so this oddly charming and amusing ad out of Texas is a breath of fresh air. Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty, a Republican, is running for re-election, and for the sake of Gerald's wife, Charlyn, let's hope he wins.

Watch the clever ad here:

While the ad debuted in early October, it was recently discovered and has gone viral over the past few days. The ad is being praised for its humor, as well as for being "unusually pleasant" during this rough campaign season.

Daugherty has served as Travis County Commissioner from 2002-2008, and was elected again in 2012.
