President Obama, John Legend cut new ad for Jon Ossoff


#Former #President #Obama and singer #John #Legend cut a new ad for #Georgia #Democrat #Jon #Ossoff ahead of his #Senate runoff.

The minutelong ad, featuring #Obama discussing the stakes of the election over music played by #Legend, marks the latest attempt by the former president to lend his star power to #Democrats’ efforts to flip #Georgia’s two #Senate seats, both of which are being contested in runoffs next week.

“This year has tested #America’s spirits. #We’ve lost loved ones, faced injustice, struggled to make ends meet. #But we kept at it. #We looked out for each other. #And when the moment came to reject fear and division and send a message for change, #Georgia stepped up,” he said, appearing to reference #President-elect #Joe #Biden#Joe #BidenGeorgia signature audit finds no fraud in presidential election #Pence refused to sign on to plan to overturn election, lawyers say #New #Lincoln #Project ad shows #Trump border wall built from tombstones of COVID-19 victims MORE’s victory in the #Peach #State, the first win for a #Democratic presidential nominee there since 1992.
