A campaign TV ad aired by Indiana Ninth District Congressman Todd Young won the Reed Award for Best Republican Congressional Candidate Ad during the 2012 election cycle.

From Young’s office:

The ad, titled “Not All”, focused on the successful efforts of Rep. Young’s office to get the name of David “Larry” Deckard inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall.

The ad was produced for Young’s campaign by Rob Aho of BrabenderCox.


The Reed Awards, named after Campaigns & Elections magazine founder Stanley Foster Reed, embody excellence in political campaigning, campaign management, political consulting and political design. Winners were selected by a panel of over 20 judges representing some of the industry’s top campaign experts.

Young defeated Democrat Shelli Yoder last fall to serve his second term in Congress.
