On Super Bowl Sunday, Dave McCormick, a Republican candidate for US Senate in Pennsylvania, will be running an ad taking aim at President Joe Biden, featuring the well-known "Let's Go Brandon" chant made popular last fall.

The campaign ad, according to Fox News, is expected to air across NBC platforms in the state of Pennsylvania during the Super Bowl.

The ad features the chant playing in the background, as it flips through headline highlights of Biden's first year in office. The chant made headlines last October after an NBC reporter at a NASCAR Xfinity Series race misheard the crowd, telling race winner Brandon Brown that they were chanting "Let's Go Brandon," instead of what they actually were saying, which was "F*ck Joe Biden."

Some of these headlines include:

"Inflation a record high." (Forbes, 12/8/21)

"US trade deficit hits record high." (The Hill, 11/4/21)

"On pace to surpass record for annual homicides." (Inquirer, 11/23/21)

"Illegal border crossing soar to record highs." (NY Times, 1022/21)

The ad cuts away from the headlines to a screen with the phrase: "This is so much bigger than Brandon."

"The issues we are facing are so much bigger than 'Brandon,'" McCormick told Fox News. "The frustration and anger we are feeling toward the failures of our current leadership in Washington is what motivated me to run."

"Whether it's not being able to afford gas or groceries because of record-high inflation, rampant crime in our cities, a dramatic spike in the trafficking of fentanyl and human exploitation across open borders, or the disgraceful lack of accountability for the death of 13 young service members in Afghanistan - these problems were self-inflicted by Joe Biden and the extreme policies of the left," McCormick said. "Pennsylvanians have had enough."

As a Gulf War combat veteran, McCormick added that he has "fought for this country."

"I believe in its greatness," he told Fox News. "Together we can turn things around by restoring common sense and strong leadership."

According to Fox News, McCormick is the former CEO of Bridgewater Associates, one of the world's largest hedge funds, and has ties to former President Donald Trump. He was considered for a top Cabinet post in the former Trump administration, and his wife, Dina Powell McCormick, served as the deputy national security adviser under the Trump presidency.
