SHARE WATCH: The many ways candidates ‘approve this message’

It’s a line you’ll hear hundreds, if not thousands of times during this election cycle: “I’m (blank) and I approve this message.”

But each candidate has their own style, and some do it better than others.

Some play it straight. Others insert an extra tag line.

Bobby Schilling, who was running in Illinois’ 17th congressional district, chose to ride off on a motorcyle while approving his message.

Georgia’s John Barrow approved the message, ” ‘ cause I don’t care what they say in Washington.”

And then New York’s Elise Stefanik — and a cow — approved the message.
