The latest TV ad from Joe Biden’s campaign features a Wisconsin woman who knocks President Trump’s response to COVID-19, saying it felt like her grandmother “didn’t matter” to the administration as she died this spring from the disease.
The campaign is spending more than $14.5 million this week on TV and digital ads in seven states, including Wisconsin. The campaign didn’t provide details on how much of that would target Wisconsin.
The woman, identified as Jessica from Greenfield, said things “spiraled downwards” quickly for her grandmother Susana Martinez as she passed away April 29.
“The president made a huge mistake in downplaying this virus,” the woman says. “There was a lack of leadership, a lack of responsibility and a lack of resources. It felt like our elderly have not been a priority for this administration.”
