In Final Two Weeks HMP Launches Media Blitz in 16 Districts Coast-to-Coast

Washington, DC – Today, House Majority PAC launched new TV ads in 16 districts across the country: AZ-01, CA-10, CO-06, FL-07, FL-18, IL-12, IL-13, MN-02, MN-08, NC-13, NY-19, NY-24, NV-03, TX-32, WA-08 and WI-06.

 “From coast to coast, we’re making sure voters know the truth – Congressional Republican candidates aren’t looking out for hardworking families,” said House Majority PAC Communications Director Jeb Fain. “Instead, they’re pushing an agenda that raises health care costs, increases taxes on the middle class, and puts critical programs like Social Security and Medicare at real risk, all to give their special interest donors a massive tax break. Republican leaders have even made it clear that Social Security and Medicare, which seniors have earned and depend on, are in their crosshairs. With so much on the line, voters can’t afford another two years of Republicans pushing their disastrous economic plans through Congress.”

A description of the ads follows:

In AZ-01, the ad, titled “Believe Her” begins running on cable and broadcast today in the Phoenix media market with a buy of approximately $451,000 behind it. The ad exposes Wendy Rogers’ past comments calling for ending Social Security, saying “I’d like to see it phased out.”

In CA-10, the ad, titled “Looking” is the second ad running as part of an approximately $2.2 million buy on broadcast and cable in the Sacramento media market. The ad reveals how Jeff Denham’s voting record in Washington would hurt hardworking Californians. Denham took over $300,000 from the insurance industry and voted for a disastrous health care plan which would gut protections for people living with pre-existing conditions, jeopardizing the coverage of over 300,000 of his Central Valley constituents and impose a punishing “Age Tax” on older Californians. According to the AARP, the “Age Tax” would allow insurance companies to charge older Americans up to five times more than younger consumers.  

In CO-06, the ad, titled “Thought” begins running on cable and broadcast today in the Denver media market with a buy of approximately $831,000 behind it. The ad slams career politician Mike Coffman for voting against hardworking Coloradans and, instead, looking out for special interests. After 30 years as a politician, Mike Coffman has taken over $1.7 million from the special interests and backed the GOP toxic tax plan, which gives corporations a massive tax break while adding $1.9 trillion to the debt and raising taxes on hardworking middle-class families. The Aurora Sentinel called the tax plan a “middle-class nightmare.” To pay for it, Republican politicians like Mike Coffman intend to make deep cuts to Social Security and Medicare. 

In FL-07, the ad, titled “Exclusive” begins running on cable and broadcast today in the Orlando media market with a buy of approximately $878,000 behind it.

In FL-18, the ad, titled “Act” will run on broadcast in the West Palm Beach media market, with a version also running on digital platforms across the district, backed by a combined buy of approximately $483,000.
