Now you’re talking!
Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie knows how to appeal to Virginians; let them blow things up.
Gillespie released a campaign ad leading up to the Fourth of July promising to make fireworks legal if he is elected to office.
In the spot, the candidate is holding a sparkler while noting that fireworks permitted in Virginia are “rinky-dink,” compared to what neighboring states allow.
Gillespie posted the ad on Twitter, with the caption: “As Va. governor, I will work to make fireworks legal here so we can celebrate 4th of July in true American fashion!”

The ad drew an endorsement for former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who ran for president in 2016:

Here’s a sampling of other reactions to what may be the best political ad ever:

No hyperbole- this may be the best political ad I have ever seen. Shame it won't work if run in October. https://t.co/n4yRMhOC4b

Brilliant ad. Especially if you understand that Maryland has more lax fireworks laws than the state which gave us the Bill of Rights. https://t.co/pjj2J8xk3m

I have never wanted someone to win an office so badly until this tweet.

And, in case you’re wondering, yes, Democrats took issue with the ad, which adds fireworks to the long list of pro-American things they oppose.
