Priorities USA – We The People

The following is the official press release from Priorities USA for “We The People”: the following is not an endorsement.

We The People” contrasts Donald Trump’s chaos and selfishness with Joe Biden’s steady, compassionate leadership. Millions of Americans are in crisis and Donald Trump still chooses to put himself first while sowing hate and division. Joe Biden knows what it means to be a real leader and he knows that Americans can meet our greatest challenges when we are united. With Biden in the White House, the American people will always come first.

Since March, Priorities USA Action has spent about $24 million holding Donald Trump accountable for his failure to protect American lives during the coronavirus crisis. Priorities continues to invest almost $2 million per week on TV and digital ads to reach voters in battleground states and tell the truth about Donald Trump’s failed leadership. Priorities is committed to investing more than $200 million through the end of the year to defeat Donald Trump and ensure that Joe Biden is the next President of the United States.

“Donald Trump is lying and deflecting in order to avoid any accountability for the thousands of lives that could have been saved had his administration acted with a shred of competence. We will not allow his campaign of misinformation to go unchecked,” said Chairman of Priorities USA Guy Cecil. “Because of Donald Trump, the United States is still at square one in tackling this crisis while other governments, who took the threat seriously, are seeing declining cases and safely reopening their economies. Millions are out of work, thousands are getting sick every day and all Donald Trump cares about is staging his next political rally. We are investing millions of dollars to make Joe Biden the next president because he will put the interests of the American people first.”

The Lincoln Project: Rushmore

From the official YouTube description: Trump’s legacy is his countless failures, and the damage he’s done to America and its people. Our Founding Fathers look down at him with disdain.

The following comes from The Lincoln Project’s official press release for “Rushmore”:

July 2, 2020 – The latest ad released by The Lincoln Project, “Rushmore,” contrasts the American leaders enshrined on South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore and our current President, ahead of Trump’s planned visit to the monument this Fourth of July weekend.

“Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt all deeply understood the revered responsibility of the Presidency, and each played a pivotal role in preserving our Republic. Donald Trump, in contrast, shirks his oath of office, constantly shifts blame to disguise his incompetence, and uses his position to further divide the American people,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project.

As the nation reckons with a complicated legacy regarding historical monuments, Trump need not worry that any of his will be sullied in the future. He’s already irreparably tarnished his legacy and will only be remembered for his countless failures, and the damage he’s done to America and its people.

Priorities USA Action Expands Investment in Arizona with New Bilingual Latino Digital Ad and Additional TV Buys

Priorities USA Action is expanding its investment in Arizona as the state continues to move in Vice President Biden’s direction and away from Trump. Priorities is extending its TV and digital buys in the state, and expanding its seven-figure digital program specifically targeted to Latino voters. In July alone, Priorities is set to spend over $1 million in Arizona. In recent tracking, Arizona has shown more movement than any other battleground state.

Along with this increased investment, Priorities is releasing a new digital ad, “Enough,” targeting Latino voters in the key states of Florida and Arizona who have been disproportionately hurting from the disastrous consequences of Trump’s failure to lead. Running in English and in Spanish, “Enough” highlights how Trump’s failed leadership has only worsened the multiple crises we’re facing, adding even more chaos at a time when our country is in pain.

From a health perspective, the COVID-19 infection rate among Latinos has far outpaced the rest of the country’s. While Latinos make up 18% of the population, they make up 34% of cases nationwide. And then there’s the economic impact of Trump’s inaction. A recent survey conducted by Latino Decisions on behalf of Priorities USA and Latino Victory Fund found that roughly half of Latinos in FL and AZ reported that they or someone in their household had lost a job or taken a pay cut because of the coronavirus crisis, while a similar number had trouble affording essential expenses like housing, food and medicine. As if that weren’t enough, Trump has been showcasing his violent and authoritarian tendencies, raising concerns among many Latinos whose families came to the United States escaping abuse of power and with the dream of living in a true democracy.

Weathering crises on multiple fronts, Latinos are increasingly concerned with the direction that Donald Trump has been taking this country, and they don’t believe he possesses the qualities needed to steer the country back in a positive direction.

“We’re seeing Trump pay the price for his disastrous policies. Arizona’s recent numbers show that the state has had enough of Trump’s failure to lead, presenting a unique opportunity for Democrats,” said Priorities USA Action Executive Director Patrick McHugh. “Latino voters are key to deciding who wins Arizona. Our research is telling us they want a leader who can bring people together and lead us through these trying times, and that leader is Joe Biden.”

Priorities USA Action has spent almost $2 million per week on advertising in key battleground states. The seven-figure Latino program is part of Priorities’ commitment to spend over $200 million through the end of the year to defeat Donald Trump and ensure that Joe Biden is the next President of the United States.
