The DeMaio campaign’s latest ad, which will begin airing on Wednesday, touts the former San Diego City Council member as an independent-minded candidate trying to reform the Republican Party and make it more inclusive.

Times of San Diego is posting competing campaign ads for the benefit of this site’s primarily younger readers and voters who are less likely to watch TV.
