Celebrate Passover and/or Easter With the First Official Ad From Ted Cruz

By Published on .

America's Jews and Christians are undoubtedly looking forward to one thing as they celebrate Passover and Easter this weekend: the first TV ads of the 2016 presidential race!

Thankfully, Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas -- the first candidate to officially throw his hat in the ring -- has answered their prayers. According to Politico:

The Texas senator is purchasing a small amount of airtime on television affiliates in the early states of Iowa, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Nevada on Easter Sunday, according to ad tracking sources. At least some of the advertising will air during a showing of the NBC program "AD: The Bible Continues."

The ad, above, matches the programming. It is called "Blessed" and is heavy on the religious overtones.
