MILWAUKEE—State Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa announced today a television ad campaign to turn out more Latinx votes in the November 8 general election, funded by her campaign. Zamarripa is unopposed for re-election to her Assembly seat after overwhelmingly winning her Democratic primary in August and is using her campaign resources to turn out the Democratic vote up and down the ticket.

“My goal in political life is to increase the participation of the Latinx community to ensure our issues are addressed,” said Rep. Zamarripa. “I’m pleased to be able to encourage greater participation by getting voters to vote not only for me, but for candidates up and down the ticket that support our community.”

The television campaign began last week and includes a 30-second spot in Spanish that references the leadership of Cesar Chavez, Delores Huerta, and Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL). The ad can be seen on youtube here:

“Latinx community voters want a fair immigration system, access to affordable healthcare, a quality education for their kids, a healthy environment, safe streets, and a strong economy,” said Rep. Zamarripa. “Our entire ticket, from Hillary Clinton to Russ Feingold to Gwen Moore to me, is committed to a progressive agenda. That’s why I’m working to get the vote out.”

Separately, Zamarripa has also been leading LatinxVoice Wisconsin’s campaign to increase Latinx turnout, by appearing at events, voicing radio ads, and knocking on doors herself. She has traveled across the state to turn out votes for fellow progressive Democrats and has launched a new bilingual website at, where voters can get information on how to register, vote early, and vote at the polls on election day.

“The Latino community is turning out, and we are going to surprise people this November,” said Rep. Zamarripa. “We want candidates that build bridges, not walls, and so we must oppose Donald Trump, Ron Johnson, and other Republicans who would move us backward.”
