Six-figure Ad Buy In Des Moines, Sioux City Begins This Week

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today announced that it will begin running a new ad in Des Moines and Sioux City targeting Steve King for putting himself first, over the needs of Iowans.

The ad, entitled “Babies,” begins airing today.

“Babies” can be viewed here:

“Clearly, Steve King is way out of touch with the needs of Iowans,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “After all, even in this challenging economy, King voted to cut college loans and Pell Grants to help the next generation of Iowans get ahead while taking special interest junkets and sticking taxpayers with the bill for his luxury SUV.”

House Majority PAC has been heavily invested in this race. Over a four-week period in July and August, House Majority PAC partnered with AFSCME and SEIU to run two spots in Des Moines and Sioux City.

The first was an ad touting Christie Vilsack’s Iowa values and independence:

The second criticized Steve King for raising his own pay and looking out for himself:

The IA-04 ad announced today is part of a new $2.2 million spending initiative from House Majority PAC that includes ads in six districts nationwide.
