Kim Foxx’s latest campaign ad recounts her political endorsements, features family members of gun violence victims

Just as she’s facing additional criticism for her handling of the Jussie Smollett case, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx released a new television campaign ad on Wednesday touting her endorsements from high-ranking officials. The 30-second commercial recounts her endorsements from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Gov. J.B. Pritzker, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, and the Chicago Sun-Times. The spot also highlights families that have been affected by gun violence and support Foxx’s candidacy. “At the end of the day, every parent, family member, and friend who has lost someone to gun violence must live with the same level of pain and frustration,” Ronald Holt, father of slain teenager Blair Holt, said in a statement about the ad. Blair Holt was fatally shot in 2007 on a public bus as he tried to shield his friend from gunfire. “That anguish can never be reversed.” In the commercial, which is titled “Trust,” Ronald Holt and Maria Pike, who lost her son Ricky Pike to gun violence in 2012, hold up portraits of their loved ones. They, along with others, say in the ad that they trust Foxx to pursue violent offenders and each take turns reading a line from the script, which reads in part: “Those of us who know the toll of gun violence, who know the toll of violent crime stand with Kim Foxx for state’s attorney. I’m for Kim because she’s focused on violent crime and guns.”
