Abdul El Sayed

According to a report in Gongwer, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate, has taken to the airwaves by releasing a 30-second ad calling for voters to join the “people’s summer.”

The ad is to run in the Detroit media market, on both broadcast and cable stations. The total ad buy is $150,000 according to Mr. El-Sayed’s campaign.  In contrast, another Democratic gubernatorial candidate Shri Thanedar already spent millions of dollars on his ads that have been running throughout the state for several months. A third Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer has not stated when her campaign will begin running television ads.
