PRIORITIES ANNOUNCES FUSE ADVERTISING TO JOIN STRATEGIC TEAM

Led By CEO Clifford Franklin, FUSE Will Focus On African-American Strategy, Media

Today Priorities USA Action announced the addition of FUSE Advertising, led by CEO Clifford Franklin, to their strategic team. FUSE will focus on African-American media while advising Priorities throughout the campaign.

Clifford Franklin is the CEO of FUSE, a full service integrated advertising agency based in St. Louis, MO with offices in Washington, DC and Cape Town, South Africa. FUSE managed African-American paid media for the Obama Campaign in 2008 and 2012. Their clients have included Charter Communications, CNN, Hyundai, Anheuser Busch, The Media Fund, National Education Association, SEIU, The Democratic National Committee, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. 

“Just as we were proud to help elect President Obama in 2008 and 2012, we’re very excited to be joining Priorities USA where we will once more make history and help elect Hillary Clinton President of the United States,” said Franklin. “Hillary is the only candidate strong enough to take on the Republicans in November and will stand strong for middle-class Americans, and particularly African-Americans against Republican efforts to attack voting rights, make education more expensive, and give massive tax breaks to the super-wealthy.”

“We’re pleased that Clifford and FUSE are bringing their considerable talents to the Priorities USA team,” said Chief Strategist of Priorities USA Guy Cecil. “ Republicans have already spent $6 million attacking and distorting Hillary Clinton’s record, and this latest addition to our team strengthens our ability to fight back, spread Hillary Clinton’s message and hold her Republican opponents accountable.”
