ANDOVER, MA — Today, Democratic congressional candidate Dan Koh aired the first televised ad in the Third District Congressional race. The 30-second spot, which features Koh’s parents and grandmother, highlights Koh’s roots in the district and his family’s immigrant story. The ad also underscores Koh’s commitment to stand up to President Trump and fight for progressive values. The ad, entitled “Stand With You”, is airing throughout the district.

Commenting about the ad, Koh remarked, “My family came to the Merrimack Valley from Korea and Lebanon. They worked in the mills, served in the military, and opened up a medical practice in Lawrence that my mom and her two brothers still run today. I am running for Congress because the American Dream is under attack by President Trump. Democrats need to step up, fight back, and advance a bold, progressive vision of what we should stand for as a country. In Congress, I will work to guarantee healthcare as a right, create an economy where everyone has access to a good job with upward mobility, and protect our core democratic values.”
