The gist: This new 30-second ad urges voters within the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities to back a slate of Democratic candidates as both parties vie for AAPI support this election cycle. The ad features several members of the AAPI talking about issues they care about, including health care, women’s issues and education.
“I’m here because I care about making sure my community has access to quality health care,” one woman says, before another man adds, “I want Nevada to be a safe place for all women including my mom, my girlfriend and my five sisters.”
“I’m here because I want leaders who support an education system that works for all Nevadans,” another says.
They then urge viewers to back Rosen, Sisolak, Lee, Ford and Araujo in their respective races.
