A left-leaning Super Pac named American Bridge has sunk $50 million into an ad campaign that features Trump supporters with regrets. The focus will be on rural working-class voters in the swing states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
Each ad features a single individual who explains their town’s history and what led to their decision to vote for Trump in ’16, and their reason to encourage others to defect in 2020.
“We are both registered Republicans and were intrigued by the idea of a businessman, and in 2016 I voted for Donald Trump,” Lori Malburg says in one video airing in rural Michigan markets.
“I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that I voted for Donald Trump at this point,” she adds in the spot.
Mark Graham, a voter whose story was used for American Bridge’s ad set in Pennsylvania, was more direct: “I don’t think Donald Trump is on the side of the American people. I think he’s on his own side.”
