Elizabeth Heng, a Republican congressional candidate in California, appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday to talk about a political ad her campaign put out that is drawing plenty of attention.
Taking a humorous approach to linking her Democratic opponent, Rep. Jim Costa, to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the ad depicts Costa wearing a pair of red heels as he struggles to walk down the street.
Heng told Fox News’ Ed Henry, who noted the “creativity” of the ad, she was looking for a “lighthearted” way to note the differences between her and Costa, who supports sanctuary cities, gun control and a number of other policies championed by Pelosi.
As Henry pointed out, many Democrat incumbents distance themselves from Pelosi while running for office, only to vote in lockstep with her agenda once reelected.
Trailing by just over 10 percent in the latest polling, which is close for running against an incumbent, Heng needs unique ways to draw attention to her campaign and the ad accomplishes just that.
“Walk” can be seen in its entirety below:
Now compare the Fox News take to humorless MSNBC.
Network anchor Kasie Hunt felt compelled to ask Heng if the ad “is a little sexist?”
“Not at all,” the candidate replied. “When I’m watching these ads, there is so much finger pointing going on in Washington D.C.”
After saying she wanted to stay focused on issues important to the district, Hunt took another swing at the “sexist” narrative, this time evoking Pelosi’s name.
“I disagree with that,” Heng answered. “This is a light-hearted way of saying that my opponent talks about being a blue dog Democrat for this community and a fighter and champion for it but the problem is that when you vote in line with Ms. Pelosi, 90 percent — nearly 90 percent of the time.”
“It’s undeniable that [his] policies do align with her, and to say that you don’t here, in the valley, in the district I think is misleading.
