Two of the four Democrats vying to succeed Rep. Gary Miller (R-Rancho Cucamonga) on Monday announced cable TV ads in the Inland Empire district.

Both ads accentuate the positive in a race that has become increasingly competitive.

In her ad, Colton attorney Eloise Gomez Reyes speaks directly to voters about how she topped onions as a 12-year-old to earn money for her school clothes.

“I made the journey” from field worker to successful community member, Reyes says, “but for people these days that journey has become so much harder.

“In Congress, I’ll fight for families working hard to join the middle class, and those struggling to stay there,” Reyes says in the ad, which her campaign said will begin running Tuesday on four cable systems.

Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar’s ad, also beginning Tuesday, features him speaking with his grandmothers about his promise to protect Medicare and Social Security, ensure a quality education for all children and to always look out for the middle class over big corporations.
