ATLANTA, GA: Labor-backed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Riggs Amico began airing her first TV ad this week to promote her vision of leadership that guides America through its current storm by placing the interests of the nation’s working families first.
In the ad, Amico offers an extension of the message that launched her run for the Senate seat of David Perdue. As the nation endures times that are testing Americans’ faith in its leaders and institutions, Amico demands not words but action, promising to be a fighter for all Georgians.
“The challenges we’re facing as a country are tough, but fixable,” Amico said. “This ad reaffirms our message that getting the job done will take leaders prioritizing working people, fighting for those who serve on the front lines of this pandemic, and speaking up for communities that for too long have been denied justice. Senator Perdue has failed us on all counts.”

The spot reminds voters that, unlike Perdue, Amico has been a jobs creator who spent her career putting working families first. As the only candidate in the race with union support, Amico has earned the trust and faith of working families across Georgia. She offers a vision of a nation that champions those who have been marginalized and speaks up for communities who have been left behind. It’s the reason she’s earned the endorsement of five labor unions, to date, and the vocal support of workers’ advocates.
As early in-person voting began this week, the state was on track to break election primary records. Nearly 700,000 absentee ballots have already been requested by Democratic voters, demonstrating the kind of voter enthusiasm that propelled Amico to more than 1.8 million votes in her 2018 bid for Lt. Governor — nearly a half million more votes than Perdue received in his 2014 election.
