October 24, 2016
Washington, D.C. – Today, House Majority PAC, the leading super PAC for House Democrats, announced that the group is partnering with ally Patriot Majority USA to air a GOTV (get out the vote) ad featuring Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz. The ad, titled “Time,” was developed and produced in cooperation with the online comedy network JASH to encourage voter participation by members of the Rising American Electorate. “Time” will first air in CA-21 starting tomorrow with more districts across the country to follow in the coming days before Election Day.
The ad, with HMP’s disclaimer, can be viewed online here.
In districts where “Time” is aired by Patriot Majority USA a version of the ad with that group’s disclaimer will appear instead.
“In elections that could be close at every level of the ticket, turnout is going to make the difference,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Alixandria Lapp. “Our elections need to reflect the incredible diversity of our country, and it’s particularly essential that young women make their voices heard. We’re grateful to Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero and the team at JASH for lending their talents to make a fun, engaging ad that serves a critically important purpose – getting out the vote and ensuring people from every background participate in 2016.”
“This is a historic election, and it’s extremely important to engage a broad and diverse spectrum of voters,” said Patriot Majority USA President Craig Varoga.“We’re proud to be a part of this unique and upbeat appeal to encourage people across the country to participate in this year’s election.”
“Voting is one of the most important aspects of our society, and if this video can convince at least once person to get to the ballot box on November 8th, then we are proud of what we were able to accomplish,” said Nicholas Veneroso Co-Executive Producer of JASH.
Melissa Fumero is currently a regular on the 2014 Golden Globe winning series, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” She previously was seen recurring on the CW’s hit series, “Gossip Girl” as well as in “The Mentalist” for CBS.
