Dean Phillips supporters launch ads attacking Biden’s electability
,” CNBC Politics, March 2, 2020
The supporters of Dean Phillips, a Democratic Congressional candidate from Minnesota, are launching digital ads that criticize former Vice President Joe Biden’s electability in the 2020 presidential election. The ads, which were launched on social media, claim that Biden is not as electable as Democrats like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The ads feature images of Warren and Sanders alongside quotes from prominent Democrats such as former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who has endorsed Biden. The ad campaign is targeting potential voters in Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District, which Phillips is running in. The ads are hoping to capitalize on the split among Democrats in the district who remain undecided between Biden and other Democratic presidential contenders.
