Nuestro PAC Releases Ad Featuring Convention Speaker Kristin Urquiza, Whose Father Died of C
August 18, 2020 Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org WASHINGTON -- Nuestro PAC today released a new ad featuring Kristin Urquiza, who spoke at last night’s Democratic Convention about Donald Trump’s failed leadership in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic that took her father’s life. In partnership with America’s Progressive Promise PAC, Nuestro will run the ad in Arizona, Urquiza’s home state, and North Carolina, as well as digitally.
Urquiza says, “Like so many others, my father should not have died of COVID. His death is due to the carelessness of Donald Trump and the politicians who continue to jeopardize our health through a clear lack of leadership. Trump refused to acknowledge the severity of this crisis. Donald Trump is unfit for the presidency.” She goes on to endorse Joe Biden saying, “He’s a real leader.” Nuestro and America’s Progressive Promise PACs were created by senior aides to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential runs which saw overwhelming support from the Latino community. Latinos are expected to be the largest minority voting bloc in November; however, former Vice President Biden is currently underperforming with this demographic. America’s Progressive Promise PAC is currently running a national ad during the convention that highlights Sanders’ endorsement of Biden. In the lead up to the November election, both PACs will air ads in key battleground states, as well as targeted digital, mail and organizing campaigns, to turn out Sanders’ supporters for Biden and critical down ballot races. Last month, they launched one of the largest Spanish-language ad campaigns of the cycle in Arizona, Michigan and North Carolina. In the coming months, both PACs plan to expand operations into additional states.
