Bob Barker appears in ad to support Jolly
Bob Barker, host emeritus of The Price is Right television show, stars in Pinellas Republican congressional candidate David Jolly's newest television commercial. The commercial is set to debut Thursday, the same day Barker is scheduled to make a guest appearance on the game show.
In the commercial, Barker notes that he was a friend of the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young and that Jolly worked with Young on veterans' issues.
Jolly is running against state Rep. Kathleen Peters and retired Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Mark Bircher in the Jan. 14 Republican primary for the seat. The winner will face Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the March 11 general election.
