Women beware: when crossing between blue and red states, a burly police officer may force you to pull over and take a pregnancy test.

So warns the latest TV ad from California Governor Gavin Newsom, airing in Alabama in response to legislation banning adults from helping minors cross state lines for abortions (though the women in the ad both appear to be adults).

Readers might be forgiven for wondering why Newsom is running ads in Alabama, but his choice of network offers some clues. The ad aired on MSNBC during a show hosted by former Joe Biden spox Jen Psaki, seemingly part of the governor’s long-running campaign to bolster his image among Democrats nationwide. Newsom 2028, anyone?
