Ahead of Pence’s Visit to Reading, DNC Unveils New Billboards Slamming the Trump Administration’s Failed COVID-19 Response
October 17, 2020
Yesterday, the Democratic National Committee unveiled new billboards across the road from Reading Regional Airport in Pennsylvania, the site of Vice President Pence’s rally today, highlighting how Trump’s failed coronavirus response has hurt Pennsylvanians — leading to the deaths of 8,500 Pennsylvanians and hundreds of thousands of lost jobs in the state.
The billboards, located on Route 183 across from Reading Airport, are running Friday and Saturday and greet many of the Pennsylvanians driving to Pence’s event today.
“Voters in the Keystone State won’t be able to miss this message: Trump’s failed, incompetent coronavirus response has cost too many Pennylvanians their lives and livelihoods,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “When Pence comes to town, he’ll be greeted by the consequences of the Trump administration’s record: spiking COVID-19 cases, workers who have lost their jobs and are worried about where their next paycheck will come from, and Pennsylvanians concerned Trump will rip away their health care coverage in the middle of a pandemic. That record of failure is why so many Pennsylvanians of every political persuasion will be voting Trump out of office.”

Yesterday, in advance of Pence’s visit, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party hosted the latest event on its “Broken Promises” Tour, a virtual press conference with PA Dems Vice Chair Senator Sharif Street, Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan (PA-6), State Senator Judy Schwank (D-Berks), and Berks County Democratic Committee to discuss how President Trump’s economic policies, COVID-19 response and attacks on health care have left working families in the region behind.
