Digital Campaign Will Direct Northwest Ohio Voters To DNC Ad Highlighting Trump’s Failure To Address COVID-19
Ahead of Mike Pence’s event in Swanton today, the Democratic National Committee launched a new daylong slate of digital ads on the homepage of the Toledo Blade to hold Donald Trump and Pence accountable for their failed pandemic response.
The digital ads will direct voters to the DNC’s ad, “Had Enough?,” which contrasts Trump’s claim that his administration has done a “great job” responding to the coronavirus with the reality of Trump and Pence’s failed response, which has led to more than 5,100 Ohioans’ deaths.
“At every turn, Trump and Pence’s incompetence has made the coronavirus worse, and they’ve cost Ohioans their lives and livelihoods,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “No matter what Pence says, we’re making sure Ohioans know the truth about Trump’s record: He’s failed to respond to the coronavirus — and even in the midst of a pandemic, he’s trying to rip away health insurance and gut coverage protections for people with preexisting conditions. That record of failure is why Ohioans are making their plan to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”
Ahead of Pence’s visit, the Ohio Democratic Party is also holding a press call highlighting Trump’s broken promises to Ohio workers, featuring Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz and Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga.
