Washington, DC— People For the American Way announced a Spanish-language radio ad buy in Virginia, with a bold call to reject MAGA Republicans and vote Democratic up and down the ballot. The ad also focuses on the importance of protecting Virginians against power grabs by MAGA Republicans this Tuesday, November 7, because they want to take away the freedom to learn, access to abortion care, and give even more money to wealthy corporations.
“Reject,” a 60 second ad, which begins airing today, will air several times a day, through Election Day, across the Washington, DC metropolitan area and Northern, Virginia, on Spanish-language radio stations.
There are an estimated 32 million eligible Latino voters nationwide. In Virginia, Latino voters make up 5.5% of eligible voters in the state, about 341,000 out of an estimated 6.2 million voters. The ad is being released against the backdrop of recent turmoil across the state where more than 3,000 qualified voters were purged from voter rolls, a school board candidate in Fairfax County was disqualified because of a clerical error that will nullify the votes of those who already cast their ballots, and as control of the state legislature hinges on just four Senate seats and seven House seats that are tossups.
“MAGA Republican authoritarianism affects everyone, and we have to get that message out across Virginia,” said People For the American Way President Svante Myrick. “It takes all of us to stand up and defend democracy. These ads remind voters what’s at stake in this election, in clear and honest terms, and they empower voters to get out to the polls and reject MAGA Republican power grabs.”
Additionally, digital ads will go live this week urging voters in target districts to get out and vote, as People For simultaneously increases rapid response support for Marcia St. John-Cunning, a People For endorsee and candidate for the Franconia district school board seat in Fairfax County who was kicked off the ballot via a lawsuit brought in Virginia circuit court by MAGA Republicans.
