Democrat Ads on Healthcare Aim for Latino VoteJune 18, 2018 |

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced the launch of a new digital campaign attacking the recent declaration by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the Department of Justice would no longer defend key parts of the Affordable Care Act — including the highly popular provision that prevents insurers from denying coverage based on pre-existing medical conditions. Millions of Americans were able to access more affordable health insurance coverage after that signature change.
Democratic leaders in Congress are hoping the ads resonate ahead of the crucial midterms, especially among Latino families, who made the most gains in coverage under Obamacare than any other ethnic group in the country.
