Video: Ghazala Hashmi Releases First TV Ad of General Election


From the Ghazala Hashmi for State Senate campaign:


RICHMOND, VA – Today, Ghazala Hashmi’s senate campaign released its first TV advertisement of the general election: Easy (https://youtu.be/yRnzsqp55Jw)

“We’re excited to introduce more voters to Ghazala through this ad that exhibits her passion for and commitment to education,” said campaign manager Philip Stein. “As an educator of more than two decades here in Richmond, Ghazala knows how important public schools are to the people of the 10th district, which is why she is making equal opportunity to quality public education a key platform of her campaign.” With less than nine weeks left before election day, Ghazala Hashmi is well-positioned to flip the 10th senate district, which is widely seen as the best opportunity Democrats have in the state to win control of the chamber. Below is a transcript of the ad:

“Growing up in the south with the name Ghazala wasn’t always easy, but public schools helped me find my way. As an educator, I’ve spent my career helping students at a community college to give back what my teachers gave me. And my students work so hard, but too often, too much stands in their way. I’m running for state senate to do more, because our state government isn’t doing enough for our schools, for our families, for all of us.”

Ghazala Hashmi immigrated to the United States from India 50 years ago, and she has lived in the 10th district for nearly 30 years. Hashmi wants to bring her diverse background, fresh ideas, and extensive experience to the Capitol, because as an educator of 25 years she understands the struggles that so many people in her district and across the Commonwealth face as they try to get ahead in life. Ghazala is focused on standing up for quality public education, affordable health care, and common-sense measures to reduce gun violence. The 10th district is the best pick up opportunity Virginia Democrats have in the Senate this year and thus their strongest chance to win back control of the chamber.
