As governor, Ben will fight hard for all of the Mountain State, and move West Virginia forward,” concluded Browning.


Ben is an avid hunter, outdoorsman, and climber. The ad was filmed at New River Gorge. “Hands Dirty” will also run on digital platforms. 

Please see below for a transcript of the ad:


Ben Salango:


I’m used to overcoming challenges.


As a local leader, I’ve grown the economy, helped small businesses, and developed new industries, despite being told it couldn’t be done.


I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty to help build West Virginia up.


Jim Justice made billions off the backs of our miners, yet fought to avoid paying them what they deserve.


And that’s a disgrace.


As governor, I’ll make sure West Virginians get the leg up to help them succeed.
