Video: Phil Hernandez for Delegate Campaign Releases Broadcast TV Ad in HD100


From the Phil Hernandez for Virginia House of Delegates (HD100) campaign:


NORFOLK, VA – Phil Hernandez’s campaign for House District 100 today released its first television advertisement for broadcast, titled “Stronger.”

The television advertisement, running on broadcast television in Norfolk and on the Eastern Shore, highlights what’s at stake in this November’s election and illustrates the choice between Phil Hernandez and Rob Bloxom, Jr.

The son of a single mother, and a civil rights attorney, Phil will stand up for working families in the 100th district. In office, he will work to ensure that seniors don’t have to come out of retirement to afford their prescriptions, and will take on the insurance companies so every person has access to the care they need. 

Rob Bloxom, Jr. has changed throughout his years in Richmond. Virginia has notoriously weak state ethics laws, yet Bloxom, Jr. has repeatedly fallen short by failing to publicly disclose gifts from lobbyists, including the National Rifle Association (NRA). At the same time, he’s tried to move Virginia backwards by voting to let insurance companies take away coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. These votes by Bloxom, Jr. prompted the American Lung Association, American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society to sound the alarm earlier this year, warning that “Virginians with pre-existing conditions … will suffer the greatest harm, as their lives quite literally depend on access to affordable, comprehensive coverage.”

Watch “Stronger” here.

Phil Hernandez is running for House of Delegates in Virginia’s 100th district. Born and raised in Hampton Roads, Phil attended public schools, and received a Gates Millennium Scholarship, which made it possible for him to attend William & Mary and become the first in his family to graduate from college. Phil served as a Senior Policy Analyst in President Obama’s White House Domestic Policy Council, and, while in law school, helped to pass legislation aimed at preventing homelessness. More recently, Phil worked as an attorney with a nonprofit organization and advocated for civil rights and the rights of working people.
