State Sen. Ralph Northam released his first lieutenant-governor campaign ad that will air on Richmond and Norfolk network television and highlights his experience standing up to Ken Cuccinelli to fight for women’s healthcare.

The 30-second spot includes former Del. Paula Miller discussing Northam’s role in defeating the transvaginal ultrasound bill and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards thanking him for his leadership to repeal the current mandatory ultrasound law.

“As the only physician in the Senate, I stood up to Ken Cuccinelli and his radical Republicans to defeat the transvaginal ultrasound bill.  As your lieutenant governor, I can stop this assault on women’s rights and use my credibility as a medical professional to expand women’s access to healthcare across the Commonwealth,” Northam said.
