Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dave McCormick to release ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ ad during Super Bowl

US Senate candidate Dave McCormick will release an ad during Sunday’s Super Bowl that refers to President Biden as “Brandon” and criticizes his performance in everything from withdrawing troops from Afghanistan to rebuilding the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

McCormick, 56, is one of dozens of candidates running to replace outgoing Republican Senator Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania.

He was the CEO of Bridgewater Associates, the largest hedge fund in the world with at least $150 billion in assets, from 2020 to January of this year.

In the 30-second clip, dark quotes from the mainstream media flash past the screen as the crowd chants “Let’s go Brandon.”

“It’s so much more than Brandon,” the ad concludes.

“Let’s go Brandon” became a conservative slogan after the NASCAR race in Alabama in October. The crowd chanted “F*** Joe Biden” but an NBC reporter incorrectly said they yelled “Let’s go Brandon” during an interview with race car driver Brandon Brown.

President Biden was forced to acknowledge the slogan on Christmas Eve when an Oregon father told him so during a holiday live broadcast.

“Let’s go Brandon” has gained traction as an anti-Biden slogan since it was first used to incorrectly describe the crowd’s chant of “F*** Joe Biden” during a NASCAR game last October.

That same month, Southwest Airlines opened an investigation after a pilot said, “Let’s go Brandon” after the plane landed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The incident was caught on video and went viral.

“Southwest does not condone employees sharing their personal political views while serving our customers, and the individual perspective of one employee should not be interpreted as the perspective of Southwest and its 54,000 employees,” the airline said in a statement.

In December, the father-of-four who told President Joe Biden to “let’s go Brandon” during a NORAD Santa Tracker event with First Lady Jill Biden tried to clarify that he was joking.

“Come on, Brandon, that’s right,” President Biden replied, seemingly caught off guard.

After the moment went viral, he later said he “didn’t mean disrespect” and “not Trumper” but “a free thinker and follower of Jesus Christ.”

“At the end of the day, I have nothing against Mr. Biden, but I’m disappointed because I think he can do better,” Schmeck told the Oregonians.
