The ads include a gauzy one-minute spot featuring Biden arguing that the country’s character is on the ballot, another featuring his wife, Jill, talking about his life story and a Nebraska veteran criticizing Trump’s leadership.

Two ads appear aimed at Black voters, including one featuring vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris calling on Americans to “vote for change” and another featuring a gospel-inflected song calling on voters to “rise up.”

Five Spanish-language ads also tout Biden’s plans for climate change, the economy and the coronavirus pandemic.
