Aaron Ford Speaks About His Upbringing in New Campaign TV Ad

Las Vegas, NV -- The Ford for Nevada Attorney General campaign released a new television ad today, "Come From," in which Aaron Ford talks about his upbringing, struggle with poverty, and turning his life around.

"Where I come from, it's easy to fall through the cracks," State Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford says in the ad. "When I was young, I made mistakes, but having a child, turned my life around. With a love of learning, I earned five college degrees, started teaching, and got elected to the Senate where I passed laws protecting kids and seniors from abuse."

Aaron is the oldest of three sons. His father, Larry, was a produce worker at a grocery store. His mother, Denise, worked various jobs during his youth. Though his parents worked hard, his family spent many nights wondering if the gas, electricity and water would turn on the next day.

This humble beginning instilled in Aaron early on the drive and commitment to create a brighter future for himself and to give back to his community. He fought against the odds, and succeeded.

"My opponent will try to paint me as someone I am not, but I'm Aaron Ford,"  he continues in the ad. "And I'm proud to be endorsed by firefighters and law enforcement. As Attorney General, Ill always fight for you."

"Come From," began airing in the Reno media market beginning September 23rd.
