Brian Maryott Launches First TV Ad of the Cycle

49th District Congressional candidate Brian Maryott today launched a six-figure ad buy highlighting Mike Levin’s extreme, far-left record

CARLSBAD, Calif. — Brian Maryott today launched his first TV ad of the cycle, highlighting freshmen incumbent Mike Levin’s extreme, far-left record in Congress.

“The truth is that the 49th Congressional District is still a moderate, Republican leaning district, and our survey research shows that Mike Levin’s extremely partisan record makes him one of the most vulnerable freshmen Democrats in Congress. This ad shows 49th District voters that Mike Levin’s record is far-left to the extreme, and Brian Maryott is the better choice,” said Stephen Puetz, Maryott’s campaign consultant.

The ad focuses on Levin’s extremely partisan voting record in Congress, noting that he voted with the Democrat majority 99.6% of the time and even voted with self-proclaimed democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on 95% of votes. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Levin in a tweet last year and applauded him for “proudly calling himself a progressive in a swing district” in a recent CNN interview.

“Mike Levin’s support of socialist initiatives that would double our taxes, gut military spending, and kick millions of people off of their private health insurance plans are out of touch with the priorities of 49th District voters,” said Brian Maryott. “I’m focused on representing this district with a commonsense approach, prioritizing independent leadership over hyper-partisan policies.”

California’s 49th District encompasses portions of both northern San Diego County and southern Orange County. The district covers the coastal cities of Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, and Del Mar. The inland portion of the district contains Rancho Santa Fe, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Mission Viejo.

Maryott is a Certified Financial Planner who spent most of his career helping families save for a rainy day, send their kids to college and retire with dignity. As the Mayor of San Juan Capistrano, he has a proven record of reform and a history of working with people from all walks of life to get results.

CA-49 is a swing district with a Cook PVI of R+1 and a R+3 voter registration advantage. To learn more about Maryott and his campaign, please visit
