Abrams to appear in Super Bowl commercial advocating for voting rights


Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) will reportedly appear in a Super Bowl commercial campaigning for the expansion of voting rights.

Her Super Bowl appearance will come just two days before she gives the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union address.

{mosads}In the Super Bowl commercial which will run in regional Georgia markets, Abrams, who served as Georgia’s minority leader in the statehouse for years before running for governor, makes a call for updated voting machines and increased resources for local officials, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Every vote should be counted, from every corner of our state,’’ she says in the ad.

The 30-second TV ad reportedly cost about $100,000 and was paid for by liberal voting rights group Fair Fight Action. 

Abrams started Fair Fight after losing to Gov. Brian Kemp (R) in a close election fraught with allegations of voter suppression and reports of uncounted ballots.

The ad features Abrams sitting next to Republican county commissioner Natalie Crawford. Habersham County, where Crawford is the commissioner, was the subject of a legal battle over a previous legislative election, AJC reported.

“We need hand-marked paper ballots, and our election officials to have the support that they need,” Crawford says in the ad.

Abrams has become a prominent figure in the Democratic Party following her close race, and her selection as the party’s State of the Union response speaker continues her rise post-election. The Super Bowl will be in Atlanta this year.
