Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams appears in a new advertisement for voting rights that will air during the Super Bowl.

Fair Fight, Abrams’ political group, bought airtime that would air during Sunday’s game on Georgia affiliates. The ad, which was released online Thursday, shows Abrams with Republican commissioner Natalie Crawford of Habersham County, NBC News reports.

“Every vote should be counted from every corner of our state,” says Abrams, who lost her race for governor against Republican Brian Kemp in November. “Join us in the fight for election reform.”

Last year, Abrams was looking to become the first African-American woman to become governor in U.S. history. Her race against Kemp, who served as the state’s secretary of state, was marred with allegations of voter suppression, which mostly impacted Black voters.

Abrams appearance on the NFL’s biggest game comes a few days before she’s set to give the Democratic response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union.
