IN THE STATES: DNC Launches ‘Billboard Blitz’ to Thank President Biden, Democrats for Delivering Needed Relief to Americans

Fox News: “The campaign is the latest effort by Democrats to tout the benefits of the plan that is supported by a majority of Americans. A Gallup poll released March 26 found that 63% of Americans approve of the pandemic relief package.”

This week, the Democratic National Committee launched a new campaign featuring billboards in high-traffic areas across twenty states to thank President Biden and Democratic senators for delivering needed relief to Americans by passing the American Rescue Plan. The billboards, which were featured everywhere from Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show to Fox News to swing-state local TV, also call out Republican senators for voting against the relief package. The American Rescue Plan, which a bipartisan majority of Americans support, has already delivered over 156 million direct checks and millions of vaccine doses in arms.
