Bourdeaux Releases First General Election TV Ad; Focuses on Health Care

Suwanee, Georgia -- Today, Carolyn Bourdeaux, Democratic Nominee for Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, went on the air with her first TV ad of the general election campaign, titled “Lucky.”

The ad highlights her parents struggles with health care, her opponent’s record on the issue, as well as what she will do differently.

Bourdeaux’s father struggled with a prolonged illness while her mother took care of him and struggled to afford prescription drugs and keep up with health care paperwork. Then, her mother also got sick, and they both passed away last year.

Rep. Rob Woodall voted at least 19 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act and therefore remove protections for those with pre-existing conditions, and he voted last year to deny health care coverage to 23 million Americans, 1 million Georgians, and 67,500 people in the 7th district.

Yet, Woodall made it clear that while he was voting to take coverage away from Georgians, he would keep his taxpayer-funded health care, “because it’s free.”

“As a policy expert and a mother, I believe every Georgian deserves affordable care,” Bourdeaux says in the ad. “I’ll fight to lower insurance costs and protect coverage for pre-existing conditions.”
