Senator Roger Wicker released a television ad today promoting his 2018 re-election campaign. The ad will air statewide targeting satellite television households, on cable, and some broadcast stations in the Hattiesburg/Laurel, Jackson and Memphis media markets, as well as online.

The ad features Gayle and Roger Wicker at home in Tupelo in front of their family Christmas tree. Roger and Gayle are celebrating 42 years of marriage this week.

“It’s been quite a year in Washington. We’ve delivered pro-growth tax cuts, confirmed conservative judges – the most in history – and slashed billions in job-killing regulations,” Wicker says in the ad.

He continues, “There’s a lot more to do, but here at our house, this is a moment to celebrate the magic of Christmas, to thank God for our blessings, for our great country, and to look forward with hope to the New Year. We’re Gayle and Roger Wicker, and we approve this message. Merry Christmas!” The ad closes with a family photo from the Wickers’ 2017 Christmas card.

“Hard-working Mississippi families will soon be keeping more of their money and sending less to Washington, and it’s about time,” said Wicker campaign manager Justin Brasell. “This ad recognizes that accomplishment, acknowledges the importance of faith, family, and the reason for the Christmas season. We wanted to kick off the 2018 campaign in a positive way that will make Mississippians proud, and we think this ad does that.”

Senator Roger Wicker leads the U.S. Senate with a 96.4% voting record in support of President Trump’s agenda to protect our national security and get our national economy growing. Senator Wicker’s legislation to make it the policy of the United States to grow our Navy from its current size of 278 ships to its minimum requirement of 355 ships was passed into law this month.
