San Diego, CA — As mail ballots drop across California this week, the Scott Peters for Congress (CA-52) campaign unveiled its only television advertisement of the cycle, titled “United.” The ad calls for Americans to seek unity, understanding and mutual respect, in order to overcome our enormous and shared challenges.

In the ad, Peters’ voice narrates, “Our country is getting a wakeup call,” as images turn to California wildfires and essential workers caring for sick patientsHe continues, “Our problems won’t be solved by tearing each other apart. We’ve got to start listening, caring for, and respecting each other again, so we can build an America that works for everyone.”

Reflecting on the theme of the ad, Peters stated, “COVID, climate change, social justice reform and a COVID-induced economic coma – we can’t overcome any of these unless we pull together and find a way to lift each other up, instead of tearing each other down.

“I’ve been an outspoken critic of President Trump’s policies when they’ve been contrary to our values and I’ve supported them when I’ve agreed, such as the USMCA,” he said. “But his reckless disregard for the law and the division he’s sowed has torn this country apart. His failure to manage the worst global health crisis of our lifetime has cost hundreds of thousands of lives and sent the economy into a tailspin.

“It’s been my honor to represent San Diego in Congress; it’s my hope the voters will send me back so I can help the country move on from this chaos,” he added.

The ad closes with Peters’ voice stating, “I’m Scott Peters and I approve this message, because we’re all in this together.” It begins airing online and on cable and network television later this week.

Peters was first elected to Congress in 2012, after defeating a long-time Republican incumbent by 2%. In 2018, he was re-elected by a 28% margin. California’s 52nd Congressional district includes the cities of Poway, Coronado and most of San Diego.
