Democratic Massachusetts state Rep. Carl Sciortino's campaign released a TV advertisement this week that had garnered more than 275,000 views on YouTube as of Friday. "Father's Son" recounts the time when Sciortino, who is openly gay, "came out" to his conservative father -- as a liberal. The Washington Post described the ad as "one of the more interesting campaign ads we've seen in a while." and Political Wire's Taegan Goddard called it "very effective" at communicating its message.
