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.
The Lincoln Project – Crowds
Lincoln Project Releases New Anti-Trump Ad. Says “Trump’s Fantasy Has Come True”
The following comes from Lincoln Project’s official press release:
June 9, 2020- Contrary to all evidence, since his inauguration, President Donald J. Trump has been lying about the size of the crowds that he says have come out to cheer him on.
Finally, this week, in cities across America, from coast to coast, and small towns in between, crowds even larger than he ever imagined possible have gathered — not to cheer Trump on — but in solidarity with one message: It’s time for him to go.
Donald Trump, the American people are speaking directly to you with a simple message: It’s time to start packing your bags.
Lincoln Project – War Zone
Lincoln Project Releases New Anti-Trump Advertisement. Says America is a War Zone, Trump Adds “Kerosene to the Fire”
The following comes from the Lincoln Project’s official press release:
June 3, 2020-The Lincoln Project’s latest video, “War Zone,” released today, lays bare the state of the nation under President Donald Trump’s regime. In this moment of upheaval and unrest, our country needs real leadership.
“Donald Trump has completely failed at governing,”said George Conway, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “He’s no longer hiding that he’s a brazen authoritarian, so desiring of control and power that he’s willing to turn our once peaceful cities into war zones for his own political gain, at the direct expense of American lives.”
Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said, “Donald J. Trump has no qualms about inciting violence and mayhem, from the safety of his White House bunker. In an explicit show of totalitarianism, he has taken the U.S. military and police forces and mobilized them against our own citizens. The United States must choose: America or Trump?”
No American should live in fear due to the color of their skin, their political affiliation, or their religion. Donald J. Trump has taken the side of the oppressor and the American people have made it clear they will not stand.The Lincoln Project will fight to protect all Americans and our democracy and ensure that Donald J. Trump is not re-elected come November, and Joe Biden is sworn into office come January.
Donald Trump: Healing, Not Hatred
From YouTube description: “We support the right of peaceful protesters, and we hear their pleas,” said President Trump. “I stand before you as a friend and ally to every American seeking justice and peace.”
Priorities USA – Antithetical
New TV Ad from Priorities USA Action: Donald Trump Divides the Country with Chaos and Hate
The following comes from the official press release by Priorities One USA:
Priorities USA Action is releasing a new TV ad, ‘Antithetical,’ to run in battleground states featuring Donald Trump’s chaotic and violent response to the mostly peaceful protests that have swept the nation following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis. On Monday, while protesters peacefully gathered near the White House, law enforcement was ordered to violently clear the crowd with gas and flashbangs so Trump could stage a photo op. At a time when the country needs leadership, Donald Trump brings only more chaos, division, and racism.
The ad will run as part of the seven-figure weekly ad buy across Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Priorities USA is on track to spend more than $200 million by the end of this year.
“George Floyd was murdered. Breonna Taylor was murdered. Too many of our Black brothers and sisters have been murdered. Donald Trump’s response yesterday was to order more violence against American citizens to further divide the country because he thinks it makes him look strong,” said Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil. “Donald Trump gassed peaceful protestors and clergy so he could use the Bible and a local church as a photo-op to justify his divisive, angry small-mindedness. He’s not decreasing tensions; he’s only making them worse. This is not leadership. This is a lethal combination of hatred, cowardice and narcissism.”
