Ad Features Jesse Kelly in His Own Words, Will Run Through Election Day June 12

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today announced a new six-figure advertising campaign in the AZ-08 special election.

The TV ad, entitled “Half You,” begins running today, June 4, and will run through Election Day. It features clips of Republican Jesse Kelly, in his own words, championing his support for a zero percent corporate tax rate and abolition of the minimum wage as well as his characterization of Medicare and Social Security as Ponzi schemes.

The ad also features Kelly’s remarks about former-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from an August 2010 campaign event. The five-minute video of Kelly’s comments from that August 28, 2010 rally is available here.

“Try as he might to pull a fast one on southern Arizonans, Jesse Kelly just cannot escape the extreme statements he’s made and the radical positions he’s taken,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “In House Majority PAC’s new ad, Jesse Kelly makes his own case to Arizona voters about just how out of touch and dangerous his ideas are.”
