Washington, D.C. – This week, LCV Victory Fund launched $300,000 in Spanish language TV, OTT, radio, and streaming radio ads in support of Dr. Yadira Caraveo and in opposition to Barbara Kirkmeyer in the race to represent Colorado’s new 8th Congressional District. 

WATCH: “Ayudemos”

LISTEN:  “Ayudemos”

The new ads highlight Kirkmeyer’s support for Big Oil over the health and well being of Colorado children, and Dr. Caraveo’s record of standing up to the oil and gas industry, fighting for more clean energy jobs, and her experience protecting children’s health as a pediatrician.

“The choice in Colorado’s 8th district could not be more clear: A candidate funded by the oil and gas industry who voted to allow dirty fracking near a school, versus a pediatrician who takes on Big Oil,” said Eva Estrada, LCV Victory Fund Regional Campaigns Director. “Coloradans have a proven champion for clean air, clean water, and healthy families in Dr. Yadira Caraveo – let’s send her to Washington.”

Full script for the TV ad, and an English translation, are below.

Barb Kirkmeyer ha puesto los intereses de la industria petrolera por encima de las necesidades de la gente.
Recibió $50,000 de la industria petrolera y del gas
y votó por permitir el frackeo cerca de una escuela,
…poniendo en peligro el aire y el agua
Mientras la Dra. Yadira Caraveo se mantiene firme frente a la industria petrolera.
Como pediatra protege la salud y seguridad de los niños,
Y lucha por más empleos de energía limpia.
La Dra. Yadira Caraveo lucha por nosotros.

“Help Us” (English translation)
Barb Kirkmeyer has put the interests of the oil industry ahead of the needs of the people.
She received $50,000 from the oil and gas industry.
and voted to allow fracking near a school.
…endangering our air and water
While Dr. Yadira Caraveo stands up to the oil industry.
As a pediatrician she cares for kids’ health and safety.
And she fights for more clean energy jobs.
Dr. Yadira Caraveo fights for us.
