Rick Berg's First Campaign Ad Almost Identical To Ad By Former Virginia Lawmaker Ward Armstrong
North Dakota Republican Rep. Rick Berg‘s first Senate campaign ad may seem impressive, but it lacks something important — originality. The ad — which shows Berg sitting at a table with his mother, reminiscing about the past — is almost identical to an ad previously released by Ward Armstrong, the former minority leader in the Virginia House of Delegates. Berg’s “Mom” ad is executed almost exactly like Armstrong’s “Taught” ad, right down to the use of family photos and handwritten-style font. Berg came under fire for the ad after a Florida blogger noticed the similarity between the two campaign spots. On Friday, the Democratic-Nonpartisan League of North Dakota released a statement hitting Berg for the recycled ad.
