Part of a six-figure ad buy to educate voters in CA-45

The digital ads will run from May 16 – 29

End Citizens United (ECU) today unveiled its first digital ad supporting Katie Porter in California’s 45th Congressional District. The ad, titled “What’s New,” highlights Porter’s history of holding big banks accountable and her commitment to reforming the rigged system in Washington. The ad is part of a joint six-figure digital ad buy made in partnership between ECU and EMILY’s List.

“Katie Porter has the experience, determination, and grit to stand up to big banks and corporations who are bending the rules to protect their bottom lines at the expense of California families,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller. “Voters in the district are hungry for a representative who will reform Washington, and Katie Porter is that leader. We’ll continue to get the word out about her record and commitment to standing up to powerful special interests on behalf of families in the district.”

The partnership between ECU and EMILY’s List is intended mobilize and educate voters about Katie Porter ahead of the June 5 primary election in CA-45. The digital ads come on the heels of a targeted direct mail campaign.

Earlier today, ECU released a poll showing Porter leading Congresswoman Mimi Walters, the Republican incumbent, by 3 points — 46 to 43 percent.

The ad, targeting Democratic and independent women, will run from May 16 through May 29.
