Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is appearing in a new ad for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign to shore up support among Florida’s Puerto Rican voters, in the all-important battleground state.
The Spanish-language ad debuted on Thursday. Its $500,000 price tag was paid for by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s $100 million effort to help Biden win the White House, along with help from the United for Progress PAC, a left-wing group that tailors its messages to Latinos. The ad is airing on Spanish-language TV stations in Tampa and Orlando.
“We need to vote for Joe Biden as president so he can help unify the country, take our small businesses forward and respect and help the Puerto Ricans on the island,” Miranda says in the ad.
The RealClearPolitics average for the Sunshine State has Biden up 3.7 percent three weeks out from Election Day.
