pusa-trump-ad-spanish“Deal Or No Deal” Contrasts Trump’s Record of Failure with Biden’s Strong Leadership


Washington, DC — Priorities USA Action and Latino Victory Fund are announcing a new Spanish-language ad, which will run as part of our previously announced TV ad buy in Florida funded by Mike Bloomberg, and by Priorities on digital in other battleground states.

The ad, “Deal Or No Deal,” contrasts Donald Trump’s record of failure on every front — mishandling the coronavirus, destroying the economy, and threatening millions of Americans’ health care — with Joe Biden’s strong track record of steady leadership and his unique fitness for this crucial moment in our country’s history.

Deal Or No Deal” will air on cable and broadcast Spanish-language television in Miami. It will also run statewide on social and streaming video platforms in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, specifically targeting Latino voters in both English and Spanish.

“Donald Trump claims that he's a master dealmaker, but he has failed to deliver for the Latino community time and time again,” said Guy Cecil, Chairman of Priorities USA. “On Trump’s watch, Latino voters have seen unprecedented sickness and death, widespread job loss, and repeated attacks on their health care. Enough is enough. It’s time for a real leader who has the strength to tackle the tough challenges facing our nation and put us back on the right track. It’s time for Joe Biden.”

"President Trump has brought his failed and dishonest business practices to the White House. During his time as President, he has caused the loss of hundreds of thousands of American lives by mishandling the COVID-19 pandemic and inflicted great suffering on us all through his ill-informed policies. Our Latino community has been a target of his indifference and ineptitude, and only voting for Joe Biden as the next president of the United States will stop the damage caused by Trump and steer the nation toward unity and recovery," said Luis A. Miranda, Jr., Chairperson of Latino Victory Fund.

"Donald Trump brags about his ability to make a deal. Here's the real deal: Latinos have been let down by President Trump and can make their voices heard when they vote for Joe Biden," said Mike Bloomberg. "Joe Biden will be a president that keeps his promises and stands up for Latinos." This is part of Mike Bloomberg’s commitment to spend $100 million in Florida to support Vice President Joe Biden in defeating Donald Trump through advertising and a strong ground game to get out the vote in communities across Florida.”

 
Pence Can’t Distract from Trump’s Failed COVID-19 Response PDF Print E-mail

trump-mike-pence-nbcnewsPence comes to town to distract from the ineffective leadership in the White House.


MADISON - As Wisconsin nears over 150,000 Wisconsinites who have tested positive for COVID-19, and the state continues to battle skyrocketing cases and economic crisis from Trump’s failed coronavirus response, Mike Pence will head to town to distract from the ineffective leadership in the White House. Here’s what he won’t mention: 

Cases are spiking across Wisconsin, and the state is currently approaching the grim milestone of over 150,000 infections.

  • Channel 3000: “Three weeks after surpassing 100,000 all-time cases of the novel coronavirus, Wisconsin is approaching more than 150,000 infections.Combined data from state and county health dashboards showed an additional 2,244* cases of COVID-19 in the state, which makes Wisconsin’s total count of cases since the start of the pandemic 147,769*. Wisconsin hit 100,000 total cases on Sept. 20 — three weeks ago tomorrow, while the state has seen at least 3,000 new infections each of the past two days.”
  • Green Bay Press Gazette: “Meanwhile, seven more Wisconsinites died from the virus, bringing the death toll to 1,465 people, according to the state health department.”

The crisis has reached a tipping point in some corners of the state, where doctors say hospitals are nearing capacity, and the state had to create a field hospital to handle the influx of patients.

  • Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “Gov. Tony Evers will open a 530-bed field hospital at State Fair Park next Wednesday to help hospitals in the Fox Valley and northern Wisconsin cope with a surge of COVID-19 patients that is leaving some facilities there with just a few open beds.”
  • CNBC: “A hospital in northeast Wisconsin is considering pausing elective procedures as health officials grapple with rising coronavirus cases and a double-digit positivity rate.Dr. Paul Casey, who heads the emergency department for Bellin Health Systems in Green Bay, Wisconsin, told CNBC’s Shepard Smith on Thursday that hospital beds have been at or near capacity over the past week and that it’s weighing on both staff and operations.”


The failed COVID-19 response is also hitting Wisconsin’s economy hard, and experts believe it will take the state even longer to recover given the strength of this new wave of cases.

  • Green Bay Post Gazette: “The region's explosion of coronavirus cases doesn't just threaten more lives but could reverse Wisconsin's economic recovery as it infects more of the workforce and saps consumer demand.”
  • Green Bay Post Gazette: “More than half of workers in the leisure and hospitality sector either permanently or temporarily lost their jobs in March and April, and the sector still has a long way to go to recover those jobs. Some businesses in this industry that have been unable to reopen even see the need for industry-specific aid for this sector.”

New data confirms that Trump and Pence’s failed COVID-19 response tanked the economy, contracting by 32.6% between April and June. This exacerbated existing economic trouble from the manufacturing recession Trump oversaw from his chaotic trade policies with China.

  • Wisconsin Public Radio: “Wisconsin's economy shrunk by an annual rate of 32.6 percent between April and June compared to the first three months of 2020, according to new numbers released Friday from the federal Bureau of Economic Analysis, an agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce. The drop is the highest recorded by the agency since it started tracking quarterly GDP figures for states in 2005. It dwarfs some of the worst losses seen in past quarters, which hover around 8 percent.”
  • Politico: “But the White House's trade wars kicked the sector into another slump in 2019, with Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Pennsylvania facing declines or plateaus in manufacturing employment even back in February — well before Covid-19 forced layoffs at dozens of plants. As of July — the most recent month for which data is available — each state is down between 20,000 and 40,000 workers from pre-pandemic levels.”

mike-penceWISCONSIN -- In response to Mike Pence's upcoming visit to Wisconsin, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Philip Shulman released the following statement:

“Last night on the debate stage Mike Pence made clear that he and Donald Trump have no plan to protect people with pre-existing conditions even as they try to repeal the ACA, which would put over 2.4 million Wisconsinites at great risk of losing their coverage. Pence’s visit will only serve to remind Wisconsin voters how he and Trump failed to respond to COVID-19, leading to the economic collapse from which families across the Badger state are still suffering. Whatever lip service Mike Pence wants to give won’t change the fact that Wisconsnites will vote on November 3rd to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House.”

joe-biden-winTom will reach across the aisle to serve working families, not special interests and fight to help us build back better, says Biden.


Brookfield, WI - The Tom Palzewicz for Congress campaign is pleased to announce an endorsement from Vice President Joe Biden.

“A Navy Veteran, small-business owner, and lifelong Wisconsinite, Tom Palzewicz is the right leader for Wisconsin’s families. Tom will reach across the aisle to serve working families, not special interests. And, he’ll fight to help us build back better. I’m proud to support Tom Palzewicz for Congress,” said Vice President Biden.

tom-palzewiczPalzewicz stated, “In the midst of a global health crisis, our country dealt with ineffective leadership at the highest level. Wisconsin lost $25 million due to our legislators’ arrogance and refusal to hold sessions on Wisconsin’s COVID-19 response. And our Republican leaders and Conservative Supreme Court urged us to risk our lives to vote and leave our homes during this pandemic. Unlike my opponent, Scott Fitzgerald, Joe Biden will do his job and work for all of us, not just those who voted for him. I am honored to have his support.”

trump-pusa-play-it-downWISCONSIN -- In response to Eric Trump's upcoming visit to Wisconsin, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Philip Shulman released the following statement:

“It’s more clear than ever that regardless of what Trump and his campaign do, Wisconsinites know the president has completely failed to address the COVID-19 pandemic and keep families safe. What’s more is in the midst of this pandemic, which continues to fuel a soaring infection rate and hospitals on the brink of bed shortages, Trump is still trying to dismantle the health care system and strip protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Trump and his cronies have repeatedly put themselves first and Wisconsinites last, and Badger State voters are going to remember that on November 3rd when they send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House."

Scott Fitzgerald Not Doing His Job PDF Print E-mail

scott-fitzgeraldFitzgerald wants to stop the one action that the CDC considers the most effective means of protecting against the virus, wearing a mask, and he is counting on his gerrymandered district to propel him to Washington.


Brookfield, WI – Scott Fitzgerald, the Republican candidate for the Fifth Congressional District, is not debating or holding town hall events, not stating his position on issues, he's not doing interviews, or even presiding over the Wisconsin Senate Senate. He is not doing anything to run for Congress. Instead, he is going to court once again to try to stop Governor Tony Evers from controlling COVID-19 in Wisconsin.

Even after President Donald Trump tested positive for COVID-19 and was hospitalized at Walter Reed, Fitzgerald wants to stop the one action that the CDC considers the most effective means of protecting against the virus—wearing a mask. Fitzgerald, the Senate Majority Leader, joined a lawsuit against Governor Tony Evers for his mask mandate. Fitzgerald would rather litigate than legislate. Democrat Tom Palzewicz is running against Fitzgerald for the Fifth District seat in Congress to bring democracy back to government.

tom-palzewicz"Fitzgerald claims that the governor is not doing his job, that he is overstepping his authority while the nation watches the news of the president's diagnosis," said Palzewicz, "The reality is that Scott Fitzgerald isn't doing his job. He heads up a state government with a full-time legislature but doesn't ever seem to go to work. He is supposed to be running for Congress, but he doesn't do that job either. No one knows his views on healthcare, climate change, or any other major issues facing this country. Scott Fitzgerald is doing nothing to run for Congress.

"Fitzgerald is counting on his gerrymandered district to propel him to Washington allowing him to avoid working in Washington just as he avoids working in Wisconsin. Who wouldn't want that job?" Palzewicz explains.

"What will it take for Fitzgerald to understand this virus is a very real threat, not only to public health but to our national security?" Palzewicz asked. "Fitzgerald goes to court to open up Wisconsin and then watches from a distance as infection rates spike. He is on the wrong side of this issue, and it has gotten to the point where he poses a threat to public health by his refusal to take common-sense measures to fight the pandemic.

"Fitzgerald has no plan for fighting the pandemic. He has no plans for healthcare. He is willing to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA, Obamacare) but has nothing to replace it. Tens of millions would lose their coverage. He may also be considering cutting Medicare and Medicaid, further eroding what little millions of people have. He'll cut Social Security, which for some seniors is all they have to live on. And for what purpose?"

"In reality, we have no idea what Fitzgerald will do because he won't tells us," Palzewicz continued. "Democracy dies when you can run for congress and don't tell anyone what you're planning to do when you get there."

Palzewicz has maintained that the pandemic is not a political issue, but a public health issue. He has stated that it will take both Republicans and Democrats, working in cooperation, to create a plan for public health effectively. Palzewicz, a U.S. Navy veteran and former banker, has promised to work across the aisle and listen to all ideas.

****

Tom Palzewicz is the Democrat running for Congress in Wisconsin's 5th Congressional District. He is a small-business owner and Navy Veteran running against Scott Fitzgerald.
