GHAZALA HASHMI RELEASES NEW AD HOLDING GOP OPPONENT ACCOUNTABLE FOR VOTING RECORD

RICHMOND, VA – Today, Ghazala Hashmi’s senate campaign released a new TV advertisement that holds Republican incumbent Glen Sturtevant accountable for his voting record in the Senate: Slick https://youtu.be/MDDz3PhAw8A

“No matter how hard he tries, Senator Sturtevant can’t run away from his voting record,” said campaign manager Philip Stein. “The truth is Senator Sturtevant voted in lockstep with his Republican colleagues to oppose Medicaid expansion, denying access to health coverage to 400,000 Virginians, and block common sense gun safety laws even after the tragedy in Virginia Beach. Voters in the 10th district won’t be fooled by his political schemes.” Below is a transcript of the ad:

“Behind Glen Sturtevant’s slick image campaign…a record he can’t cover up. Sturtevant voted to deny access to health coverage to four-hundred-thousand Virginians and expand plans that let insurance companies deny coverage for pre-existing conditions. And after the gun lobby spent big money to elect Sturtevant, he voted to block common sense gun safety laws. The real Sturtevant is wrong for State Senate.”

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.
