Former Vice President Joe Biden has published a series of advertisements featuring fourteen black mayors from different states across the country. The purpose of the ads is to reach out to black voters directly to ensure that we are leveraging our collective power as voters for this upcoming presidential election, according to Blog 4 President.
The first commercial ad, titled "Mayors," is a 60-second ad already broadcast nationwide on television, radio, and digital, and featured notably by the following black mayors: Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, the Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, Flagstaff, Arizona Mayor Coral Evans, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, Birmingham, Alabama Mayor Randall Woodfin, Columbia, South Carolina Mayor Steven Benjamin, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Richmond, Virginia, Levar Stoney, Mayor of Stockton, California, Michael Tubbs, and Mayor of St. Paul, Melvin Carter.
There are two other commercial ads, "Black Mayors Women" and "Black Mayors Men," which are both 30-second ads that have already run nationally and in major battlefield states that Biden and Senator Kamala Harris aim to capture. These states are Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. This latest series of ads is part of a robust campaign aimed at educating and engaging black voters nationally and in key battlefield states.
