WASHINGTON — The Voter Protection Project (VPP), the largest national PAC focused on electing voting rights champions, is launching a $1 million dollar independent expenditure effort to boost Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s Senate runoffs.
VPP’s campaign, beginning Thursday, is a mix of television advertising and direct mail pieces targeting Georgia voters.
The first ad, airing on Fox News across the Macon, Albany and Columbus media markets, targets Senator Kelly Loeffler for keeping Georgians in the dark about the severity of the pandemic while using her knowledge to further line her pockets.
The direct mail, which will push support for both Warnock and Ossoff, will target nearly 500,000 voters of color across the state.
This past July, VPP endorsed Rev. Warnock, praising his commitment to fighting against the rampant voter suppression tactics led by Governor Brian Kemp and Republican leadership in the state.
Founded in 2019, the Voter Protection Project works to confront the architects of voter suppression directly at the ballot box. Following the Supreme Court’s Rucho v. Common Cause ruling, which stated that federal courts cannot regulate partisan gerrymandering, VPP has taken the fight to defeat voter suppression state-by-state. During the 2020 cycle, they have raised over $8-million to support candidates for office at the federal and state levels that champion fair and representative elections.
“Kelly Loeffler pretends she’s one of us, but this billionaire is only about cashing in.
Days before the pandemic, Loeffler attended a secret briefing about China and the Virus.
Then failed to warn us.”
“The economy is strong, jobs are growing.”
“Instead, she dumped millions in stock before the economy crashed.
We lost our jobs, but Loeffler stayed rich.
C’mon Kelly, there’s no dressing up this inside job.”
