Priorities USA Action and Senate Majority PAC Launch New Round of Ads on Bill Nelson’s History of Fighting for Florida
Ads will continue running statewide in English and Spanish
Washington, DC — Priorities USA Action and Senate Majority PAC are releasing a new round of digital ads highlighting Senator Bill Nelson’s record of tirelessly defending the interests of all Floridians. The ads will focus on his efforts to protect Medicare and Social Security, keep the price of prescription drugs low, and expand access to affordable health care, including protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
This new round of ads comes as part of Priorities USA Action and SMP’s previously announced $600,000 campaign supporting Nelson. The ads, which will run statewide in English and Spanish, will appear on social media, Google search, and across numerous websites and video properties where voters are consuming content in both languages. The campaign includes a targeted program to Florida’s growing population of Hispanic voters, particularly Puerto Ricans who have relocated to the mainland post-Hurricane Maria.
“Now more than ever, Florida families need a true fighter looking out for them in Washington,” said Guy Cecil, Chairman of Priorities USA Action. “Bill Nelson has consistently fought back against attempts to privatize Social Security and Medicare and stopped insurance companies from denying health coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. Priorities and SMP are committed to making sure that Bill Nelson can continue to defend the interests of all Floridians.”
“There is only one candidate in this race who puts Florida first, and that’s Bill Nelson,” said J.B. Poersch, President of SMP. “From protecting Medicare and Social Security to fighting for access to affordable health care for all Floridians, Bill Nelson has shown that he has what it takes to stand up and fight for the people of Florida. SMP and Priorities are determined to make sure hardworking Floridians know that Bill Nelson always has their back.”
