A fresh Joe Biden ad, "New Start," signals an effort by his campaign to make unity a central theme, underscoring a new passage in his stump speech that says he won't be a president just for Democrats but for all Americans.

What he's saying: The ad — which began Friday night, and is a follow-up to "Fresh Start" — draws from a Biden speech earlier in the week in Manitowoc, Wisconsin:


I don’t pledge allegiance to red states of America or blue states of America — I pledge allegiance to the United States of America. I’m gonna fight as hard for those who supported me as those who did not support me. We have a chance to put [the] anger and division [that] have overtaken this country behind us. And we can.

The ad will be on national cable and in 13 battleground states (broadcast and digital): Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

  • The Biden campaign says is spent $65 million on TV last week.

See "New Start."

A second ad, "Wipe Out," will run in the same states but target seniors, as a follow-up to previous Biden ads about Social Security.

  • "If I'm your president," Biden says, "we're gonna protect Social Security and Medicare. You have my word."

Why the startup world needs to ditch "unicorns" for "dragons"

When Aileen Lee originally coined the term "unicorn" in late 2013, she was describing the 39 "U.S.-based software companies started since 2003 and valued at over $1 billion by public or private market investors."

Flashback: It got redefined in early 2015 by yours truly and Erin Griffith, in a cover story for Fortune, as any privately-held startup valued at $1 billion or more. At the time, we counted 80 of them.
