House Majority PAC today released an advertisement that demonstrates just how extreme Jesse Kelly is – using his own words. Kelly is the Republican nominee in the special election in Arizona’s Eighth District to complete the term of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
The TV ad, entitled “Screens,” will begin running on Friday. It features clips of Kelly championing extreme positions, like his support of tax cuts for the top one percent, a zero percent corporate tax rate, abolition of the minimum wage and his characterization of Medicare and Social Security as Ponzi schemes that he’d like to see eliminated.
“Jesse Kelly may now be working overtime to deny his full-throated support for extreme policies, but as Warner Wolf famously said, ‘let’s go to the videotape,’” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “Whether it’s backing massive tax cuts for the wealthiest among us, abolishing the minimum wage or eliminating Medicare and Social Security and ripping the safety net out from underneath seniors, Jesse Kelly is out of step with southern Arizonans.”
