Sciortino launches playful ad, emphasizing liberal cred

In a new television ad for his congressional run set to begin airing Wednesday, Democratic state Representative Carl M. Sciortino underlines his liberal credentials in a playful back and forth with his father, who doesn’t share his left-of-center views.

With less than a month to go before the special primary election in the race to succeed Edward J. Markey in the US House of Representatives, Sciortino’s ad follows one that began airing today from one of his Democratic opponents, state Senator Katherine Clark of Melrose. That ad, featuring Clark and her mother, was the first TV spot aired by any of the candidates, according a Clark campaign official.
