Obama Warns Voters His Legacy Is On The Line In New Clinton TV Ad (VIDEO)

Hillary Clinton/ Democratic National Committee

Hillary Clinton released a new television ad Friday featuring President Obama urging voters to turn out in order to protect the progress his administration has made over the past eight years.

“All the progress we’ve made these last eight years is on the ballot. Respect for women is on the ballot, tolerance is on the ballot, equality is on the ballot, justice is on the ballot,” Obama says in the ad, which is clipped from an Oct. 11 rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. “If you want to send a message in this election, send a message about who we are as the American people. Send a message by voting for Hillary Clinton,” he continues.

The 30-second ad, titled “On The Ballot,” was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and is expected to air nationally, with higher concentrations in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and North Carolina, according to the Clinton campaign. The size of the ad buy was unclear, as well as how long the ad will run.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
