The Democratic National Committee on Monday launched a campaign to raise awareness and support President Obama’s American Jobs Act, which he introduced last week and plans to send to Congress on Monday night.
The television ad, “14 Months,” will begin airing tomorrow, and marks the first in a series of ads that will be released over the next few weeks. The online ads, a 30-second spot called “Tomorrow” and a 15-second spot named “Relief,” will run on Facebook, Hulu, Youtube, Pandora, Huffington Post, and other news networks.
The DNC is directing people to a website to learn more about the Jobs Act, sign a petition in support of the legislation, and get directions to call their members of Congress to urge them to vote for the Act.
“This effort is intended to communicate [Obama's] plan to the American people and for Americans to communicate their support for his plan to their representatives in Washington," DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse said in a statement. "There is simply no time to waste."
