DNC Unveils New Billboard in Miami Highlighting The American Rescue Plan; Republicans Marco Rubio, Rick Scott and Maria Salazar’s Opposition to $1,400 Relief Checks
March 15, 2021
Today, the Democratic National Committee is unveiling a new billboard in Spanish, highlighting that help is here with the American Rescue Plan and how it will send $1,400 checks to households and help get shots in the arms of Floridians. The billboard also highlights that this bill passed despite opposition from Florida Republican Senators Marco Rubio, Rick Scott, and Representative Maria Salazar.
This billboard, which is located in Rep. Salazar’s district and will be up for one week, is located on NW 7th Street, a heavily traveled east/west artery in Little Havana where traffic flows continuously throughout the day.
“Voters in Miami won’t be able to miss this message: Help is here, and it’s because of President Biden, not Senators Rubio, Scott or Representative Salazar, who opposed this bill and the relief it provides Floridians,” said DNC Chair Jaime Harrison. “With measures including direct payments of up to $1,400 per person and resources to help manufacture and distribute vaccines, the American Rescue Plan will provide the relief working families need and overwhelmingly want, while showing that the government is again working for the people.”
