It’s not everyday that an American politician is negatively compared to a Canadian officeholder.

But Republican George Demos is out with the first TV ad of the race for NY-1, a 30-second spot that compares the incumbent Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop to President Obama and the colorful Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

In the ad called “One Of Us” Demos knocks Bishop for being a career politician. Ford’s name is never mentioned, but he appears alongside the president and Bishop as a career “politician” voters have become weary of.

Ford, of course, is best known for having admitted smoking crack cocaine and other antics, gaining him notoriety in Canada as well as the U.S.

Demos himself is a former SEC prosecutor who has run for the seat once before, having dropped out last year before the primary was held.

“He’s not a politician,” the ad’s narrator says. “George Demos knows the good guys from the bad. As a federal prosecutor, he threw crooks in jail because it was the right thing to do. And he’ll never vote to raise taxes or support Obamacare.”

Not mentioned in the ad is Demos’s Republican primary opponent, state Sen. Lee Zeldin.

Demos brought $1 million to the campaign in the form of a personal loan.

Here’s the full script:

Tired of politicians? Then look at George Demos. He’s not a politician… George Demos knows the good guys from the bad. As a federal prosecutor, he threw crooks in jail because it was the right thing to do. And he’ll never vote to raise taxes or support Obamacare. George Demos will fight for us because he’s one of us.
