ANDOVER, MA — Today, Democratic congressional candidate Dan Koh debuted a final ad ahead of the upcoming primary on September 4th. The ad features Dan speaking at canvass kickoffs, endorsement events, debates, and office openings from throughout the campaign. The ad underscores Koh’s commitment to stand up to Donald Trump’s policies and fight “for the values that make the American Dream possible for all of us.” The ad, entitled “Let’s Go,” will be airing across digital platforms.
During the ad, Koh emphasizes, “My parents and their families come from two different parts of this world, Lebanon and Korea. They couldn’t have looked more different, they couldn’t have spoken a more different language, but they had one thing in common—they believed in the American Dream. They settled in Lawrence, they worked hard, they had a good middle class job. That’s the American Dream story. And because of that American Dream, a Korean-Lebanese guy has a chance to potentially become Congressperson from his hometown district. That’s the promise of this country, but the reality is today, under this President and because of the discord in D.C., that American Dream is under attack. And so it’s time for us to fight for the values that make the American Dream possible for all of us. No matter your race, no matter your income, no matter your gender, everyone in this country deserves good, quality, affordable healthcare as a right. It also means that we create an economy where everyone has a fair shot, that nobody that works 40 hours a week should ever live in poverty.”
Koh continues, “As Chief of Staff to Mayor Walsh, we stood up against this President in his first year. Standing up against his disastrous climate policy, standing up against his racist travel bans, his policies around education, and his policies around gun control. We need to take a stand for the American Dream and we need to take a stand because this entire country is at stake. I ask for you to join our campaign and if we are successful on September 4th, I will make sure that that American Dream story, the one that made my life possible, and the one that made all of our lives possible, will be around for generations to come. So thank you and let’s go!”
Showcasing the excitement and energy surrounding the campaign, the ad ends with clips of crowds of supporters shouting, “Let’s Go!”
