Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate Nina Ahmad launched her first ad of the campaign, introducing herself to voters telling the story about her being an immigrant and laying out what will likely be key issues in her campaign in the final weeks.
“My name is Nina Ahmad, I came to the US alone, having lived through a violent war as a child,” Ahmad says in the ad.
Ahmad then goes on to say she will “push to ban [assault weapons] in Pennsylvania to protect our communities and schools” and that she has “battled sexual harassment and discrimination that holds us back.”
The 30-second ad will play through election day across the state as part of a $500,000 buy that the campaign said is likely to expand.
“I grew up during a brutal war in which nearly 3 million people lost their lives for the cause of freedom, so not only am I passionate about banning weapons of war from our communities, but I have no fear of special interests like the NRA or powerful political bosses when it comes to protecting our children from mass shootings,” Ahmad said.
