AP

Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ), the underdog in the Aug. 13 New Jersey Democratic Senate primary against Newark Mayor Cory Booker, will release his first television ad of the campaign Tuesday, painting himself as the true “progressive” candidate in the race.

“I approved this message because Cory Booker may be the frontrunner in this race, but he’s no progressive,” he says at the end.

The ad is running in the New York and Philadelphia markets between Aug. 6 and Aug. 13.
