Abigail Spanberger released her first ad today ahead of the November general election against the Republican Incumbent Dave Brat. See the release below.
Today, Abigail Spanberger, the Democratic nominee for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, released her first television ad of the general election. This 30 second spot highlights her career as a CIA officer and her dedication to public service.
In the ad, Spanberger discusses her belief in working together to achieve common goals. “I’m running for Congress because we Americans are in this together, and if we really treat each other with respect and live up to our values, there’s nothing we can’t do,” Spanberger says in the ad.
“Throughout her career in the CIA and now as a candidate for Congress, Abigail has prioritized service, respect, and common-sense leadership. Our first general election ad captures her life-long commitment to these principals,” said Dana Bye, Spanberger’s Campaign Manager.
The release of this ad follows historic fundraising numbers and several high-profile endorsements, including EMILY’s List, End Citizens United, Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, Governor Ralph Northam, and Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax. A full list of endorsements can be found here. Abigail will face Republican Congressman Dave Brat in November.
