“A Progressive California,” SuperPAC Launches By Releasing Digital Video Ad Supporting Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León for United States Senate in 2018 Contest

LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, “A Progressive California,” a SuperPAC aimed at backing progressive candidates for office, announced its launch by releasing a digital video ad in support of California State Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León’s campaign for United States Senate.

To view the ad, titled, “We Need Kevin,”click on the screen shot below or here.

“We Need Kevin,” the digital video ad, begins with footage of Donald Trump’s America, from the Charlottesville torch-infused rally to the commander-in-chief apathetically tossing out paper towels to the people of Puerto Rico, to the President’s efforts of pulling out of the Paris Climate change. Thereafter, it notes that Washington’s status quo has failed to sufficiently fight back against Trump. It then transitions into footage featuring Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León, highlighting his efforts to champion California’s resistance against the White House’s backwards agenda, while advancing progressive causes.

The script of the ad reads as follows:

This isn’t normal
Neither is this
Or this
Or this
These aren’t California’s values — or America’s
It’s clear that Washington’s status quo has failed. We need bold leaders who will stand up and say enough is enough!
Kevin de León has led the resistance against Donald Trump in California, showing we can lead the nation on climate change, better jobs, universal healthcare and immigrant rights.
We need a fearless leader to stand up for our values in the U.S. Senate. We need Kevin de León.
A progressive California is responsible for the content of this advertising.

The mission of “A Progressive California,” is to help elect Democrats who support a pro-working families, pro-tough environmental protections, pro-healthcare for all, pro-women’s rights, pro-immigrant rights, pro-gun safety laws, pro-equal rights agenda and who will prioritize social and economic justice causes in Washington.
