Democrat Stacey Abrams, first runner-up in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race, and Republican Natalie Crawford, a Habersham County Commissioner, appear together in a new ad to be run during the Super Bowl. The ad will appear on TV in the Macon, Albany, Columbus, and Savannah markets. A digital campaign will run in the Atlanta and North Georgia markets.
The ad, entitled “Selfie,” calls for the reformation of the election system in Georgia and highlights the nonpartisan nature of that reformation. They specifically call for the use of hand-marked paper ballots in future elections.
“In 2018, we saw that Georgia’s elections are neither free nor fair. Commissioner Crawford and I both recognize that fixing our state’s election system is not partisan – rather, it is our fundamental duty to advocate for every voter’s voice to be heard. We have joined together to ensure our state fulfills its promise and gives every eligible Georgian a vote.”
“We’ve seen election issues all across Georgia. Georgians deserve fair elections and election officials require our full support. Democracy must work for everyone and that’s why I am proud to make this bipartisan call to action alongside Democrat Stacey Abrams.”
