Mix of Television and Digital Ads Will Target Reps. Lawler, Boebert, Duarte, Kean Jr., Molinaro, and Williams
Washington, D.C. – Congressional Integrity Project is launching a new TV and digital ad campaign in half a dozen swing Republican districts calling on MAGA House Republicans to abandon their bogus investigations and focus on the real problems facing their constituents. The ads will highlight that Republicans like Jim Jordan have admitted that their goal of these taxpayer-funded investigations is to weaken President Biden and Democrats in an attempt to boost Donald Trump and gain more power to enact their extreme agenda.
“MAGA House Republicans have made clear that they are focused on pathetic Trump-style political stunts rather than the real issues Americans care about. Their constituents deserve to know that people representing them have the wrong priorities,” said Congressional Integrity Project Executive Director, Kyle Herrig. “The first week of House hearings was a preview of how Republicans plan on using the next two years: spewing QAnon and anti-vax conspiracy theories, airing grievances, re-litigating 2016 and 2020, and boosting the former president while ignoring the pressing issues Americans care about. Our country deserves leaders who put the American people’s priorities over the extreme MAGA agenda.”
The ad will run on cable television in Rep. Lauren Boebert’s district (CO-3) and have a significant online presence in the following districts: Rep. Mike Lawler (NY-17), Thomas Kean Jr. (NJ-7), John Duarte (CA-13), Marc Molinaro (NY-19), and Brandon Williams (NY-22).
The ad campaign comes after MAGA House Republicans spent last week engaged in hearings on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the so-called weaponization of the federal government, all of which devolved into Q-Anon, conspiracy-filled rants from the likes of Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Senator Ron Johnson. The hearings were a disaster for Republicans – backfiring spectacularly and failing to uncover a single piece of evidence to advance their wild claims about President Biden or his family.
V.O.: Under President Biden’s leadership, jobs and manufacturing are coming back.
But House Republicans?
They’re focused on bogus investigations to smear President Biden and his family. Why?
JIM JORDAN: “That will help frame up the 2024 race when I hope and I think President Trump is going to run again and we need to make sure that he wins.”
V.O. Return Trump to power? That’s their plan?
Call Congressman Mike Lawler. Tell him to put our priorities first, not MAGA.
