The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is launching a multi-state ad campaign this week highlighting the Democratic response and policies to COVID-19 in 2021. The ad will be airing in the Richmond media market. 

The ad highlights the return to normalcy after the pandemic. “July Fourth.The American holiday. A celebration of freedom. And this year, there’s more to celebrate. The freedom to hug a grandchild. To see a baseball game in person. To come back together, again. America, leading the world out of a global pandemic, with honesty and compassion. America’s journey continues. Through fireworks and parades, to build a better future. A future that only we the people can make, together.  America — we’re coming back.”

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison says are running the ad across the country because they wanted to tell Americans that they believe the reason the country is able to reopen now is due to the newly-elected Democratic government. “After 16 months of isolation and uncertainty, thanks to President Biden and Democrats, America is finally coming back together,” Harrison said. “Because of the American Rescue Plan, shots are in arms, checks are in bank accounts, small businesses are reopening, and our country is getting back on track. As Americans get together this July 4 to celebrate our independence, the DNC is making sure they know that President Biden and Democrats are delivering for them.”
