{ object.primary_image.title }}

More than 200,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the United States. The country needs strong leadership now, insists a new ad from the Biden campaign. It begins with a quiet family meal, as a mother places plates of food in front of her two young daughters. But there’s an empty chair at the head of the table. Another empty chair sits under a tree, as a combine harvests grain in the background. And another empty chair on a stage. Another at a school teacher’s desk. Next to a water cooler. In a gym.

{ object.primary_image.title }}
