Franz releases first TV ad and earns endorsement of Puget Sound Naval Shipyard workers

Tacoma, Washington – Today, Democrat and Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz announced raising over $460,000 in the second quarter of 2024, the best-ever quarter of her campaign and building on her record-breaking totals in Q4 and Q1. The Franz campaign has raised over $1.3 million to date and enters the final stretch of the race in a commanding position.

Franz’s fundraising advantage allowed the campaign to be the first to begin paid communication on mail and digital, and this week, we’re up on broadcast and cable with our first ad, “Ice.” The ad traces Franz’s ice skating career as a young girl, with big dreams for her future – a time when she could not have imagined that abortion rights would be under threat by MAGA extremists or that our planet would be facing a climate crisis. In Congress, Franz will fight back against efforts to pass a national abortion ban and will lead on Day One to address the climate crisis. Watch the ad here.

“I’m grateful for the thousands of people who have pitched in to support our campaign, from Neah Bay to Tacoma and everywhere in between,” Franz said. “Together, we’ll win big in the August 6th primary and go to the other Washington to fight for our rights, take on the climate crisis, and lower costs for families.”

In addition, Franz was endorsed this week by the Bremerton Metal Trades Council, which consists of unions representing workers at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, TRF Bangor, and other key Navy installations in the Sixth District. In Congress, Franz will stand strong for our federal workers and our national defense.

Franz has been endorsed by over 40 labor organizations and is supported by 17 Washington state Tribes.

About Hilary Franz

She lives in Grays Harbor County, raised her three boys in Kitsap County, and has a long history of public service in the district. Prior to serving as Lands Commissioner, Franz served on the Bainbridge Island City Council from 2008-2011, where she secured significant federal investments in transportation infrastructure, developed affordable housing policies, secured protections on critical fish and wildlife habitat, and launched a nationally recognized energy efficiency program.
