One Nation, a public policy organization dedicated to promoting commonsense legislative solutions, launched a new advocacy effort urging Mainers to support Senator Susan Collins’ efforts to secure more personal protective equipment for Mainers, prevent drug shortages, and protect Maine jobs. The new spot, “Profound,” features Dr. Scott Buchanan, a Maine heart surgeon, and Dr. Kirsten Buchanan, a Maine physical therapist, speaking about Senator Collins’ efforts to help Maine during the pandemic. The spot begins airing statewide today and is backed by a $510,000 buy on television, radio, and digital.
The script of the advertisement can be found below:
[Dr. Scott Buchanan] Health systems in Maine and across this country have been profoundly impacted by this COVID crisis.
The CARES Act coauthored by Senator Susan Collins has been instrumental in not only protecting patients here in the state of Maine, but also protecting jobs across the state.
[Dr. Kirsten Buchanan] It’s given us PPE, prescription drugs and it’s also given us the testing that we need.
Smart, caring policy that helps real Mainers every day.
[Narrator] But we need more access to critical supplies.
Urge Senator Collins to keep fighting for help in this crisis.
