This has been a great season so far for breakthrough videos by candidates seeking name recognition.

Who can forget Joni Ernst from Iowa who bragged about castrating pigs? That ad propelled her into a strong position in the crowded the Republican field.

Terri Lynn Land’s moments of silence on the War On Women likewise has gained her national attention.

The add below by Monica Wehby, running for Senate in Oregon, should also gain her attention. (h/t Right Scoop)

The words “there but for fortune may go you or I“* immediately came to mind when I saw the ad.

And I’m not talking about running for Senate. Or being a parent. Or a doctor.

[*from the Phil Ochs song There But For Fortune.)
