In first TV spot of SD 34 race, Maria Sachs vows to “fight special interests”

In her first TV ad of the state Senate District 34 general election, State Sen. Maria Sachs vows to continue her fight against “special interests” while protecting Florida’s middle class families.

The Delray Beach Democrat faces a rematch with former Republican state Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff in the Democrat-leaning district.

“Standing up to Special Interests” begins with a narrator saying how Sachs, as an assistant state attorney in Miami-Dade and Broward County, has a history of “putting victims first.”

“In the Senate, Maria Sachs put the middle class first,” it continues, “by taking on the special-interests who oppose raising the minimum wage and equal pay.”

“If you take your eye off the ball for a minute in Tallahassee,” Sachs says. “The special interests will win in the middle class families will lose.”

“I’m not letting that happen,” she adds.

Redistricting in 2012 put both Sachs and Bogdanoff, a Fort Lauderdale Republican, in the same district covering Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Sachs won by six points in one of the most bitter and expensive campaigns of the election cycle — the only contest pitting two sitting state Senators.

The ad is also available on YouTube.
