Giannoulias Releases New Campaign Ad Featuring Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García
Highlights Progressive Support for 2022 Secretary of State Campaign
(Chicago, Illinois) – Democrat Alexi Giannoulias released a new ad in his campaign for Secretary of State today that features support from prominent progressive leaders.
The new ad, titled “Commitment“, includes endorsements from Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García and members of 22nd Ward Independent Political Organization (IPO). It showcases Giannoulias’ dedication to progressive causes and to the Latino community.
“His commitment to social justice is clear,” Garcia says of the former State Treasurer. “His commitment to voter rights, his commitment to ethics…let the community know that they have a trusted friend and ally in Alexi.”
The 60-second online ad also includes: Alderperson and Committeeperson Michael D. Rodriguez; Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) Commissioner Eira L. Corral Sepúlveda; 22nd Ward IPO President Vanessa Uribe; and State Representative Edgar Gonzalez Jr. (D-21st District).
Giannoulias adds: “We need leaders who are going to fight for fairness and equity and inclusion. For far too long, members of the Latino community especially have been underserved. We need to make sure that we have government services there for our underserved communities.”
The ad marks the second released by the Giannoulias campaign. The first ad launched in April, highlighted Giannoulias’ fight to successfully save jobs at Illinois suit maker Hartmarx and focused on the impact of the Covid crisis and the resulting hardships facing workers and middle-class families.
