The gun control organization founded by gun violence survivor and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords is sinking nearly $200,000 into digital ads starting Monday in three key Super Tuesday states: Minnesota, Texas, and Colorado.
The ads feature eight presidential candidates — including top contenders like Biden, Warren, and Sanders — speaking directly to camera about their plans to curb the gun violence epidemic in the country.
The short videos allow each candidate to speak personally about how gun violence has impacted their role as a public servant or shaped their policy-making process. They’ll run mostly on Facebook and YouTube.
“What we want to do via our Gun Safety President campaign is put these candidates directly in front of the gun safety voters and let them decide for themselves,” Peter Ambler, the executive director of the organization, told VICE News. “Across the country at kitchen tables, people are talking about keeping their communities safe, keeping their kids safe, not impeachment.”
