Congressman Danny K. Davis talks Numbers https://t.co/REOV1n1Usv

The Davis campaign did not return a request for comment regarding how much it paid to have the ad made.
Responses to Davis’s ad were almost universally negative, with users mocking its amateur quality and numerous mistakes.
Davis has a controversial history. The congressman has aligned himself with anti-Semitic preacher Louis Farrakahn, went on a week-long trip to Sri Lanka funded by a terrorist organization, and crowned a Korean man claiming to be the Messiah during a ceremony he sponsored in a Senate office building.
Davis is in a heated primary, defending the seat he’s held for the last quarter-century from Justice Democrats-aligned progressive Kina Collins. Even with his campaign’s lack of technological capabilities and his questionable history, Davis has won the support of high-level Democrats. President Joe Biden, Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker (D.), and both of Illinois’s senators have thrown their support behind the congressman.
