Sri Kulkarni Launches 2nd Spanish Language TV Ad: ‘Riesgo’

Kulkarni’s second Spanish language TV ad highlights Troy Nehls’ reckless approach to combating the coronavirus

Sugar Land, TX — Democrat Sri Preston Kulkarni launched his second Spanish language TV ad in the race for Texas’s toss-up 22nd Congressional District. The ad, “Riesgo” highlights the danger of Troy Nehls’ unequivocal support of President Trump, whose reckless and senseless approach to the COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 225,000 Americans and disproportionately impacted communities of color. 

The ad calls out Troy Nehls for playing political games with the pandemic and criticizes Nehls’ characterization of mask requirements as “unAmerican” and “unnecessary”.

“Riesgo” underscores the Kulkarni campaign’s commitment to unprecedented multilingual outreach and is airing on broadcast and cable as part of the Kulkarni campaign’s seven-figure buy in the Houston media market.



Soy Sri Preston Kulkarni y aprobado este mensaje 

Troy Nehls y Donald Trump jugaron a la política con la pandemia y nos pusieron en riesgo.

Trump hizo declaraciones falsas y desinformó el público.

Nehls dijo que la orden de usar máscaras es antiamericana.

La comunidad sufre por sus acciones y nos quedamos atrás.

No podemos confiar en la agenda de Donald Trump y Troy Nehls.
