End Citizens United // Let America Vote Launch New Ad in Arizona Ahead of Vote on the For the People Act

Jun 07, 2021

End Citizens United (ECU) // Let America Vote (LAV) Action Fund launched a new TV ad in Arizona as part of its $2 million ad campaign in the state to promote the For the People Act (H.R. 1/S. 1) and thank Senator Mark Kelly for supporting the bill. The TV ad comes as the Senate prepares to vote on the anti-corruption and voting rights legislation that would prevent dark money from corrupting American politics and protect the fundamental right to vote.

The ad will air on local broadcast, cable, and streaming platforms in Arizona. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he plans to bring the bill to the Senate floor the week of June 21st.

Full Script of the ad:

The corporate special interests are at it again.

Spending dark money.

On deceptive, negative ads.

Attacking our Senator Mark Kelly.

Arizonans like us,

Arizonans like us won’t fall for it.

We’re proud Senator Kelly supports the For the People Act.

H.R. 1

H.R. 1

To rein in corporate lobbyists.

Finally ban dark money.

Protect our freedom to vote.

So join Senator Mark Kelly in supporting the For the People Act

Because it’s time

For the people,

For the people,

For the people to win.

Earlier this spring, ECU // LAV Action Fund and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee announced a $30 million campaign to pass the For the People Act. The campaign includes television and digital advertising; major grassroots activation, including putting boots on the ground in key states; and grasstops education and outreach. The campaign is funding key national and local allied organizations––from good government and voting rights groups to a wide array of issue advocacy groups. This historic investment is harnessing the grassroots energy for unrigging the system in Washington to make it work for everyone, not just those on top, and will make it clear to the Senate that we must pass this bill.
