Washington, DC — Today, MoveOn is releasing TV, digital, and radio ads in Maine, Arizona, and South Carolina to reach young people, people of color, and women, key groups that are the backbone of the progressive movement that will usher in change at the ballot box this year. As we head into the final weeks of the election, these creative and targeted ads are designed to resonate with these voters whose voices are often taken for granted.
“As the death toll keeps rising and the economic pain continues to get worse, Donald Trump and Senate Republicans continue to do nothing to help suffering and struggling families and instead are focused on stacking the Supreme Court and denying voters a say,” said Rahna Epting, Executive Director of MoveOn Political Action. “Even as Trump and Senate Republicans themselves are getting sick, they still won’t pass a COVID relief bill, because they are laser-focused on jamming through a Supreme Court nominee that will take health care away from 20 million people during a pandemic. It’s remarkable. It’s appalling. And this campaign is part of the effort to ensure we vote them out.”
MoveOn expanded its program in these key states after an outpouring of grassroots support for the progressive movement in light of Trump and Senate Republicans blatantly ignoring the will of the people by trying to ram through a Supreme Court nominee as millions of people are already voting. Instead of addressing the pandemic and economic collapse, Republicans are stacking the court with a nominee who would take away people’s health care and end protections for people with pre-existing conditions – including COVID.
The effort is funded by small-dollar contributions from tens of thousands of MoveOn members across the country.
Three ads will run across all three states:
