Women Vote Releases New TV Ad Highlighting Leslie Cockburn's Commitment to Putting Working Families Ahead of Corporate Special Interests

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY's List independent expenditure arm Women Vote released an ad highlighting Leslie Cockburn's dedication to working for the people of Virginia's 5th District in Congress, instead of protecting corporate interests.   

The Women Vote ad can be viewed here and will run today through October 29.

“With Republican leaders and their hand-picked candidate Denver Riggleman in the pocket of big dollar corporations, it's time for new representation for Virginia's 5th District,” said Christina Reynolds, vice president of communications at EMILY's List. “With Leslie in Congress, Virginia's women and working families will have an experienced fighter working for them to expand access to health care, bring down the cost of higher education, and reduce prescription drug costs. It's time to take on Republicans in Washington who are bought and paid for by their donors – not elect another one.”

SCRIPT: “Enough”

What do you get when Washington politicians take millions of corporate dollars?

Congress working for them, not us…

…high health care costs, student debt.

Leslie Cockburn hasn't taken a dime of corporate PAC money…

…she'll work to get our children an education they can actually afford…

…fight insurance and Big Pharma to lower our health care costs…

…and she's ready to take on the politicians abusing power in Washington.

On November 6th, you'll get what you vote for.
