Chris Rey: AdWatch: Faith, family, and service give my life meaning

The Rey campaign already has a campaign logo and a slogan ("Believe"), a website and a professionally produced launch video. The video is called "The Kiss" in reference to a kiss Rey's grandmother gave him the moment he was declared the winner in his first mayoral election in 2011, he said. "She's gone now, but Nov. 8, 2016, which is Election Day next year, would have been her 84th birthday," Rey said on the video. "So it is with the memory of my grandmother in my mind and heart that I announce my candidacy for the United States Senate in the great state of North Carolina."

"Faith, family, service--that is what animates my life and gives it meaning," Rey said in his video.
