Dem super PAC Priorities USA is out with a new ad hitting President Trump’s handling of the pandemic as COVID-19 cases are surging across the country.
Director of Battleground State Communications Steve Pierce told WisPolitics.com “Grasped” will run on TV in Milwaukee and Green Bay as well as on social, preroll video and streaming TV platforms statewide.
The spot features a narrator accusing Trump of downplaying the virus and ignoring experts before cutting to a clip of the president saying “we did everything right but now it’s time to go back to work.”
The narrator then says cases are surging and Trump is “making the same mistakes again.”
The ad closes with a clip of Biden saying that in order “to fix the economy, we have to get control over the virus.”
That spot comes after Priorities USA yesterday partnered with Colors of Change PAC to release a trio of digital ads knocking Trump for being “a racist his whole life,” violence against protestors and the disparity in health outcomes among Black Americans.
Pierce said the ads will be targeted toward young Black men and women and will be running on Facebook, Instagram, Pandora, Vevo, Verizon and streaming TV platforms.
