They don’t want you to hear from me the truth about what happened on January 6, the truth about the COVID origin, the Hunter Biden laptop story, and everything that they have lied to you about. So you can fix that: Take your remote and turn this off,” he added, with a beep mimicking an expletive on the finish of the business.

Speaking with Breitbart News, Ramaswamy’s marketing campaign CEO, Ben Yoho, defined that the marketing campaign shouldn’t be slowing spending; moderately, it’s merely relocating these TV funds into different areas as a result of a mixed $93.8 million in TV spending between all candidates in Iowa alone to that time had prompted little distinction within the contours of the race.
“All we’ve done is reallocated the money we had budgeted for broadcast and cable to those higher [return-on-investment] tactics that we’ve found to get our voters out, which allows us to do a lot more of it because they are cheaper things, like addressable advertising is significantly cheaper than broadcast advertising,” Yoho stated.
At least for a night, the marketing campaign is re-embracing the TV advert technique.
