NEW: Abrams for Governor Launches Two New Ads Highlighting Abrams’ Commitment to Investing in Georgians as Governor; Record of Delivering on Behalf of Georgians

ATLANTA – Today, Abrams for Governor launched two new TV and digital ads, “Generation” and “DuBose and Stacey.” These ads highlight Stacey’s commitment to investing in Georgians as governor and her long track record of delivering on behalf of all Georgians in the Georgia House of Representatives.

“Generation” showcases Stacey’s commitment to using Georgia’s $5 billion surplus to invest in working families and the next generation of Georgians. In the ad, Abrams highlights her plans to use the state’s surplus to provide stimulus checks for the middle class, fund education and job training, expand affordable housing and invest in small businesses. 

“DuBose and Stacey” showcases the working relationship of Stacey and former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, DuBose Porter. The ad highlights the story of Stacey single-handedly stopping the largest tax increase in Georgia history that would have raised taxes on 82% of Georgians.

“Generation” can be viewed here. A transcript is below:
