Delegate Mark Levine’s Campaign for Lieutenant Governor Releases TV Ad, “Every Fifteen Minutes”

Alexandria, VA – Today, Delegate Mark Levine’s campaign released its first TV ad entitled “Every Fifteen Minutes”. 

The ad highlights Delegate Levine’s leadership in the House of Delegates fighting for common-sense gun safety legislation. Levine has introduced and passed into law a number of bills to prevent gun violence.

Two of Levine’s 2021 gun bills will be signed into law by Governor Northam in a signing event taking place at 2 pm today. One of them, HB2081 (“Safe Polls Law”), prohibits guns in polling places. The other, HB2295 (“Safe Capitol Law”), prohibits guns in the Capitol, Capitol Square, and all state-owned buildings and offices. 

Watch here:

The ad will air throughout Virginia on broadcast in the Washington, Roanoke-Lynchburg, Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News and Richmond-Petersburg markets, as well as on cable and satellite TV across the Commonwealth. 

The following is a transcript of the ad:

MARK LEVINE: Every fifteen minutes, an American is shot dead with a gun. What’s been the response?

DONALD TRUMP: Our thoughts and prayers…

PAUL RYAN: Our first thoughts are with the families…

MITCH MCCONNELL: Keep them in our prayers…

JOHN THUNE: Our prayers are with the injured…

MARK LEVINE: I’m Mark Levine. I’ve led the fight for universal background checks and keeping guns from people with severe mental illness. As your Lieutenant Governor, I’ll never stop fighting to make Virginia a safer place to live, work and go to school. Because Virginia deserves active leadership. Thoughts and prayers just aren’t cutting it.
