Television producer and writer Shonda Rhimes joined forces with the leading actresses from her various ABC shows to cut a new campaign ad for Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo, Scandal’s Kerry Washington, and How to Get Away with Murder’s Viola Davis are all featured alongside Rhimes in the one-minute video.

“Every day, I wake up and play a brilliant, complex, overqualified, get-it-done woman who obsessively fights for justice, who cares, who gives a voice to the voiceless, who gets knocked down and always gets back up,” the three women each take turns saying in the ad.

“So proud that I am with her because she is with US,” tweeted Rhimes on Thursday night.

“Talk about a powerful lineup,” Clinton responded.

This latest ad is part of the Clinton campaign’s ongoing effort to make up ground among young women.

Hillary Clinton continues to see strong support from women 50 and older. She wins their support 73 percent to 25 percent. But for those women under age 50, Clinton lags behind her rival Bernie Sanders by a margin of 54 percent to 44 percent.
