New Florida Vision Launches Radio Ads On Multiple Stations Now Through Election Day
New Florida Vision PAC, the new formation mobilizing 100,000 voters of color to vote for candidates for and from the community, with Andrew Gillum at the top of their list, celebrates the start of early voting with ad buys going out on WHQT, WRSF, WOKV, WMBM, El Zol 106.7, Power 96, Actualidad Radio 1140 AM, Caracol Radio 1260 AM as well as in print.
“Young voters of color are the swing vote in this election,” explains Andrea Cristina Mercado, director of New Florida Vision PAC, “and they are swinging for Andrew Gillum. The start of early voting in Miami, Jacksonville, and other parts of the state is the start of our opportunity to make history. We have a real people’s candidate focused on real people’s issues and we’re going to make sure everyone knows this year is different. We’re not sitting it out. We’re getting our seat at the table.”
Dwight Bullard, chairperson of the New Florida Vision PAC, adds, “I haven’t met one person who hasn’t been energized when they hear about Andrew Gillum. They can relate because he has the right priorities and the actual lived experience. We’re not missing out on our chance to make history and get the best candidate with the best plan for Florida’s future.”
Voters interested in casting their ballot early are eligible to do so starting today in Miami, Jacksonville, and other cities and starting on the 18th in Broward. Details on where and how to vote early are available by texting “Andrew” to 90975.
The radio ads will run throughout the day and evening on the stations and highlight Gillum’s roots in a working family, the history he’s already made as the youngest elected city council person in Tallahassee, his unapologetic defense of immigrant families, his successful legal fight against the NRA, and his bold stance on issues that are key to young people and voters of color.
In addition to the radio ads, New Florida Vision commissioned a Wynwood Mural by Miami artist, Disem, and is knocking doors, hosting phone banks and texting parties, to build the momentum toward election day August 28th.
Voters can text “Andrew” to 90975 to find where to vote or how to get involved.
