During the ad, called "The Choice is Right" Barker says:
"Folks, when you get to be as young as I am, you call it like you see it. That's why I'm supporting David Jolly for Congress. I admired David as he worked alongside my good friend Bill Young helping wounded veterans, protecting our seniors and children and by standing up for Pinellas with character and honor. "
After a female announcer says David Jolly for Congress Barker then says; "Because with Jolly the choice is right."
