Angela Zimmann Releases Homemade Ohio Campaign Ad, 'News From The Icebox' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Ohio congressional candidate Angela Zimmann (D) isn't afraid to get a little creative. Zimmann's campaign for Ohio's 5th District takes aim at incumbent Republican Bob Latta in a low-budget web ad on the campaign's YouTube channel.

The ad, titled "News From the Icebox" hits at Latta's income through a series of refrigerator magnets, photos, and, at one point, a pair of chickens named Bonnie and Cluckey.

The video, which was sent to The Huffington Post through its citizen journalism project OfftheBus, is only Zimmann's latest YouTube creation.

In December, the Zimmann campaign released a video spoofing Republican presidential contender Rick Perry's controversial Iowa campaign spot challenging gay service members' right to serve openly in the military.

OfftheBus is seeking campaign materials from the 2012 races. If you happen to have copies of any mailers, recorded fundraising calls or commercials, or photos of campaign signs/events from the 2012 races, email them to
