The ad, titled “Dirty Word,” is set to air in Iowa on Sunday during the Super Bowl, Delaney’s campaign said Tuesday.
It is intended to cast Delaney as a candidate chasing cooperation across party lines in Washington. The “dirty word” in question: “bipartisanship.”
“It’s true. We openly admit it. John Delaney said a dirty word in Davenport, then repeated it in Des Moines and Sioux City, too,” a narrator says in the video. “In fact, he’s been saying it all across the state.”

The ad then laces together a series of clips featuring Delaney calling for “bipartisanship” at campaign stops in Iowa.
“It might be a dirty word in Washington, but it seems to be awfully refreshing right here in Iowa,” the narrator says.
The ad buy only cost about $37,000, according to The Washington Post, and covers the Des Moines, Sioux City and Cedar Rapids markets.
But the Maryland Democrat is planning to spend another $1 million on similar ads in the coming weeks, according to the Post.
