Jim Bognet Releases First Ad: Stop The Assault

Jim Bognet is the first candidate in PA-08 to go up on the airwaves. Bognet released his first 60-second radio ad that started airing Wednesday morning.

“As a son of Northeastern Pennsylvania I am proud to release an ad that stands with President Donald Trump and his agenda,” Bognet said. “We must stop the assault from Nancy Pelosi and her Lap Dog Matt Cartwright against our great President Donald Trump.”

During the first two weeks of the campaign, Bognet announced he raised $150,000. A week later he was the first candidate in Pennsylvania’s 8th congressional district to qualify for the ballot submitting over double the number of signatures required. Now just four weeks into Bognet’s race for Congress he is the first candidate to release an ad on the airwaves expressing his support for President Trump.


NARRATOR: “Northeastern Pennsylvania values run deep in Jim Bognet.

Born and raised in Hazleton, Jim grew up playing football at Hazleton High and digging ditches for his family’s construction business.

When Jim earned a scholarship to Penn State, his family was proud, especially his Italian grandfather, who got his education in the coal mines.

A conservative who fights. Jim worked for Congressman Lou Barletta and joined President Trump’s administration, rebuilding our industrial heartland.

Now Jim Bognet is running for Congress to stop the assault on our great president Donald Trump.”


“I’m Jim Bognet and I’m sick and tired of Nancy Pelosi and her lapdog Matt Cartwright attacking our great president Donald Trump.

I’ve worked to help President Trump to bring good manufacturing jobs back home to Northeastern Pennsylvania.

In Congress, I’ll always stand with President Trump to finish the wall, secure the border, and send illegals back.”

Paid for By Bognet for Congress, I’m Jim Bognet and I approve this message. STOP THE RAIN TAX!”
