Hillary Clinton focuses on African American millennials in new radio spot

in 2017 by

Hillary Clinton has some “real talk” for voters thinking about staying home on Election Day.

The Clinton campaign released a new, 60-second radio spot Tuesday aimed at African-American millennial voters. The advertisement attempts to lay out the importance of voting, and encourages listeners to register to vote.

“It’s almost election time again. Thinking about staying home? Here’s some real talk. The difference between staying home and showing up is the difference between justice and injustice, healing and division, hope and despair,” a male narrator says in the advertisement. “Look, no candidate in any election is perfect, but the choice is easy this time: Hillary Clinton. She’ll create more jobs, make college debt-free, and change the laws that put too many brothers and sisters in jail for too long.”

The narrator then says Trump “disrespects President Obama, insults communities of color, and wants to turn back the clock,” before telling listeners to make sure to register to vote.

“It’s time to get real and stand with Hillary, because she’s got our back,” the narrator says.

The radio spot will air in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

It’s the second radio spot the campaign released in about a week aimed at African-American voters. Last week, the campaign released an spot focused on Clinton’s proposal to invest in Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
