Shalala Releases Campaign ad Highlighting Leadership


Florida Rep. Donna Shalala (D), who now faces a 2018 rematch against her GOP opponent Maria Elvira Salazar, has just released a new advertisement titled “Leadership.”

The advertisement will air in both English and Spanish, and it documents her “experience in managing crisis and leading with bipartisan action.”

In a message released to supporters, it states that “the ad contrasts President Trump’s failed leadership with Congresswoman Shalala’s proven track record: leading bipartisan efforts to protect Venezuelans and slam dictatorial regimes; spearheading measures to increase access to health care and lower the cost of prescription drugs, and sponsoring legislation to protect our medical supply chain.”

In the advertisement, Shalala argues that “Democrats and Republicans have to come together and to speak with one voice,” adding that this has to happen “now, more than ever.”

A narrator highlights that the freshman lawmaker “has sponsored bipartisan legislation to protect our medical supply chain so that we are not dependent on China.”

The advertisement comes amidst Florida experiencing rising cases of COVID-19 as the sunshine state looks to completely open. As well, she faces a 2018 congressional rematch, which is set to be a race that all eyes will be on considering that Florida is a battleground state for the upcoming presidential election. 

Shalala’s congressional district is considered a “Toss-up.”
