Video: In Patriotic and Unifying Closing Ad, Tim Kaine Points to the Pledge of Allegiance to Say ‘We Can’t Let Our Leaders Divide Us’

From the Sen. Tim Kaine campaign. As always, the contrast between the upbeat, positive, compassionate, forward-thinking, unifying Kaine and the nasty, “vicious,” “ruthless,” divisive, xenophobic neo-Confederate Corey Stewart couldn’t be greater. I urge EVERYONE to vote for Tim Kaine next Tuesday and to absolutely crush Corey Stewart’s political career.

In Patriotic and Unifying Closing Ad, Tim Kaine Points to the Pledge of Allegiance to Say ‘We Can’t Let Our Leaders Divide Us’
 
Kaine: ‘We Pledge Allegiance to a Flag That Represents Liberty and Justice Not for Some, But For All’ 
 

In the closing ad of his 2018 Senate campaign, Tim Kaine cites the Pledge of Allegiance to urge Virginians to patriotically come together, reject division, and build “a Virginia that works for all.” The ad encapsulates in its title Kaine’s campaign-long theme — “For All” — and his lifelong commitment to building bridges and uniting people to tackle our biggest challenges.

 
The ad harks back to Kaine’s 2012 spot “Indivisible,” in which he said, “Washington needs to start living the values that we teach our own children,” pointing to patriotism and unity. These values have imbued Kaine’s first term in the Senate in the six years since that campaign — evidenced by his successful bipartisan efforts to help broad cross-sections of Virginians and Americans, from tackling addiction to improving career and technical education for students to confronting veterans’ and military spouse unemployment.
 
The ad will run for the final week of the election, in tandem with the recently released ad “Listening,” on television in the Washington, D.C., Richmond, Norfolk, Roanoke, Tri-Cities and Charlottesville markets.

TIM KAINE:

We pledge allegiance to a flag that represents liberty and justice not for some, but for all.

I want a Virginia that works for all, with economic opportunity and a chance for a good life.

I’ll work with anyone to build that Virginia.

We can’t let our leaders divide us, because we’re all Americans.

I’m Tim Kaine and I approve this message, because if we ask our kids to say these words –

STUDENTS IN UNISON:

One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

KAINE:

We have to be willing to live by them.
