The controversial ad “showed a pickup truck with a Confederate flag and a bumper sticker for Republican Ed Gillespie chasing down minority children”. Of course, the only truck in a similar incident was being used by an Islamist immigrant from Uzbekistan to run down and kill eight people in New York City the same time as the ad was airing in Virginia.
With Democrat Ralph Northam winning Virginia’s fiercely competitive governor’s race Tuesday night, you would think that would mean a sigh of relief for the Latino group that inserted itself into the last week of the campaign, drawing harsh criticism over an ad that showed a pickup truck with a Confederate flag and a bumper sticker for Republican Ed Gillespie chasing down minority children.
But Latino Victory Fund, which briefly ran the ad early last week, says it will instead double down on its strategy.
The group, which works to elect Democrats, argues that this type of messaging campaign serves to defend the Latino community against ads like one from Gillespie that highlighted the danger posed by MS-13 gang members, which the group said promotes suspicion of Hispanics at large.
