Delaney 30 Minute Campaign Ad

Delaney 2020

Many of the presidential candidates are running television commercials across Iowa ahead of the caucuses early next year. But one of them is going to try something different.

Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney has filmed a 30-minute program, and bought time on stations in Iowa's major cities, including the Quad Cities. 

It'll be shown on WQAD-tv, Channel 8, on Sunday morning at 10:30, plus also on Sunday in Ottumwa, Sioux City, Omaha, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, and Rochester,  Minnesota.

Segments for the program were filmed at Delaney's home in Maryland, and during recent visits to Iowa and New Hampshire. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
