(Woodbridge, VA) – Today, Jennifer Carroll Foy’s campaign launched its latest TV ad in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, “Shoes,” highlighting how Carroll Foy’s upbringing in Petersburg inspired her to spend her life fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves.

Carroll Foy also shares her commitment to standing up for Virginians who are “left out and left behind” and ensuring all Virginians have an opportunity to thrive.

Carroll Foy has announced comprehensive plans building on her experience as Delegate to make healthcare more affordable and accessible, create diverse, high-paying jobs in every corner of the Commonwealth, reform the broken criminal justice system, and more.
“Shoes” begins airing today in the Richmond and Norfolk media markets, joining the campaign’s first ad, “My Grandmother.” The ad follows the campaign’s first TV ad, “My Grandmother,” focused on Carroll Foy’s fight for quality, affordable healthcare.
If those in power walked in my shoes, they’d know what it means to grow up poor.
It’s why I became a foster mom to children with backgrounds like mine.
Then a public defender, protecting people from a system that discriminates against them.
And a delegate who expanded Medicaid and brought reforms to our justice system.
Now, I’m running for governor to stand up for the left out and left behind, and I won’t stop until all of us can thrive.
