McClellan Launches New TV, Radio, Digital Ads in Campaign for Congress
New ad, ‘I Won’t Back Down,’ on Broadcast TV in 4th District
RICHMOND, Va. — Today, Sen. Jennifer McClellan (D-Richmond), the Democratic nominee for the 4th Congressional District, released her campaign’s first television ad for the special election on February 21. “I Won’t Back Down” is airing on Richmond broadcast television and across the 4th Congressional District.
McClellan also launched a radio ad today, “Your Voice” airing across the district. And, she launched a digital ad “Fighting for Virginians,” on digital video platforms.
Both ads highlight McClellan’s record in the General Assembly passing landmark legislation, including the Voting Rights Act of Virginia, the Virginia Clean Economy Act, and the Reproductive Health Protection Act. The ads highlight McClellan’s plans to carry on the legacy of the late U.S. Rep. Donald McEachin with a focus on working for affordable health care, standing up for voting rights, and lowering the cost of living.
The special election will take place on February 21. Early voting began on January 6 and is open Monday through Friday at registrar’s offices in counties across the 4th Congressional District. Saturday early voting begins on February 11. A full list of voting locations and details on how to vote are available at VirginiaVoting.com.

TV AD: ‘I Won’t Back Down’ (:30)
I’m Jennifer McClellan. In my 18 years in the Virginia statehouse, I’ve never backed down when our rights are at risk. I passed legislation to protect our right to vote and our right to a clean environment. I led the fight for our reproductive freedom.
I’ll take that same fight with me to Congress: to keep standing up for our voting rights, lower the cost of healthcare and the cost of living. I approve this message, and I’m asking for your vote on February 21st, because I’ll always stand up for you.
RADIO AD: ‘Your Voice’ (:60)
This is Jennifer McClellan. I became a public servant almost 20 years ago to ensure that all of us here in Virginia can have our voices heard, and nobody’s left behind. I’ve never backed down when our rights are at risk. It’s why in the state legislature I passed landmark laws to protect our right to vote and to protect our environment. I’ve stood up for our reproductive freedom – as others are determined to take it away.
Now, I’m running for Congress, to keep fighting for Virginia’s families. Here’s how: I’ll work to make healthcare more affordable, lower the cost of living, and make sure our right to vote is always protected.
I’ll be your voice in Washington, and carry on the legacy of the late Donald McEachin. This is Jennifer McClellan, candidate for Congress, and I’m asking for your vote in the Special Election on Tuesday February 21st.
That’s why I approve this message.
DIGITAL AD: ‘Fighting for Virginians’ (:30)
MCCLELLAN: I’m Jennifer McClellan and I’m asking for your vote in the upcoming Special Election for Congress. For the past 18 years, serving in our state legislature, I’ve delivered for you: Safeguarding reproductive rights, expanding affordable health insurance to over 400,000 Virginians, and making Virginia the only state in the South with a Voting Rights Act. I’m ready to go to Congress and keep fighting for Virginians.
VOICEOVER: Make a plan to vote for Jennifer McClellan by February 21st.
