Senate candidate’s new ad highlights commitment to healthcare, voting rights

Sarah Riggs Amico Launches New Digital Ad, Promises to Finish the Work Begun in Historic 2018 Campaign

Thursday, June 4, 2020

ATLANTA, GA:  Labor-backed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Riggs Amico launched a new digital ad this week, promising to complete the work that she and Stacey Abrams started when they campaigned together in 2018.

Watch the ad here.

Opening with images of the historic run that saw the two women Democrats nearly flip the state blue, the ad cites their unfinished work to ensure every Georgian has affordable healthcare, and to protect every eligible voter’s right to vote.

“Stacey Abrams and I embarked on a campaign to make history right here in Georgia,” Amico says. “Despite rampant voter suppression, that’s exactly what we did. But the work we started then… that work’s not finished. That’s why I’m running for the United States Senate against David Perdue.”

Amico is also airing 30 second and 60 second TV ads that expand upon the message that launched her run for the Senate, promising to be a fighter for all Georgians as the nation endures times that are testing Americans’ faith in its leaders and institutions. Amico’s vision of a nation that speaks up for communities who have been left behind has earned her the endorsement of five labor unions and the vocal support of workers’ advocates.

The primary election has seen more than 700,000 absentee ballots requested by Democratic voters, demonstrating the kind of voter enthusiasm that propelled Amico to earn more than 1.8 million votes in that 2018 bid for Lt. Governor — nearly a half million more votes than her current opponent, Senator David Perdue, received in his only election in 2014.

In addition to her unmatched union support, Amico has been endorsed by the Leadership Now Project and Vote Mama, and has been named a “2020 Gun Sense Candidate” by Moms Demand Action.
