Thatís what I found so interesting about the new ad, the one I posted. Technically it is an ad from the Bloomberg campaign. Itís a straight up anti-Trump ad with no mention of any candidate name. The only Biden reference is the #GoJoe hashtag at the end.

But I think Dump Trump IS the larger issue in this case. So maybe it will be advocacy ads for healthcare, getting rid of Trump, gun control - with only passing references to the candidate. Although I think they can use footage of a candidate as long as they donít coordinate with the campaigns.
