UNITE HERE Local 1, which has endorsed Mayor Rahm Emanuel, released a series of TV ads Monday showing their support of the incumbent in his race against challenger Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia.
The union has released three, 15-second ads that will run on the major TV networks, namely ABC, NBC, and CBS, in an ad campaign called "Rahm Love."
Here's more from the union on the ad campaign:
Each of these ads, which can be viewed online, features a Local 1 member in the hospitality industry -- hotels, airport concessions, McCormick Place, and beyond--talking about how Rahm's tough love approach has produced real results for them. It's what they call "Rahm Love".
On Monday morning, the Mayor will stop by the union offices where in 2013 he became the first mayor in the Union's history to meet with Local 1 membership, to personally meet the three women who appear in the ads and hear why they are choosing to support him. At the event, the ads will be screened for press.
The ads, which are in-kind donations, will run from Monday through the April 7 runoff election date.
