The new advertising push in Georgia is geared toward Black voters. One spot focuses on the Democrat’s criminal justice reform proposals, including plans to abolish private prisons and end cash bail, while another spot highlights Sen.

In Iowa, the campaign is launching ads touting Biden’s leadership experience, as well as his plans to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

The ads will run on both television and on digital platforms.

The new ad blitz underscores the Biden campaign’s efforts to expand the electoral battlefield beyond core states, like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Florida, where recent polls already show him with the lead.

Minnesota, in particular, has emerged as something of an unlikely battleground this year, with the Trump campaign investing some $14 million there in an effort to flip it in November.
