Man who appeared in anti-Trump ad didn’t vote in 2016

Local News

You may have seen the television ad with Fairview Township resident Mark Graham saying he voted for President Donald Trump in 2016, but he wouldn’t be voting for him in 2020. You see him doing yard work at what appears to be his Sterrettania Rd home.

But what he says in that commercial is not entirely true. While he might not vote for him in 2020, the fact is, Graham did not vote for him in 2016 like he said he did in the political TV ad.

JET 24 obtained Erie County voting records showing he didn’t vote at all in the 2016 election.

Documents from the Erie County Elections office shows Graham didn’t vote in the municipal or primary election in 2016—he did not vote for Donald Trump.

We reached out to Graham for comment, but he hasn’t gotten back to us yet.

The commercial has appeared dozens on time in the Erie TV market over the past couple weeks. It was paid for a political action committee called American Bridge. They spent thousands of dollars on this campaign.

Mark Graham, featured in the spot, is a local realtor and real estate appraiser.
