New HMP Ads in Nine Districts
November 1, 2016
Washington, D.C. – Today, in the final week before Election Day, House Majority PAC released new ads in nine House races continuing to spotlight the out-of-touch record of each Republican candidate with their district. The new ads begin airing today in CA-10, CA-21, IA-03, IL-12, MI-01, MI-07, PA-16, TX-23, and WI-08.
CA-10: HMP is going on-air in CA-10 with a new ad titled “Brand.” The ad presents the choice facing CA-10 voters between Trump-supporting Republican Congressman Jeff Denham and Democratic challenger Michael Eggman, whose values are rooted in his experience as a Central Valley farmer. Denham continues to support Trump for President even after the Access Hollywood tape revealed Trump boasting about sexual assault. Meanwhile, Eggman has made protecting and improving California’s water infrastructure a top priority of his campaign. The ad is airing on broadcast and cable in the Sacramento media market.

CA-21: “Dust” again presents the choice for CA-21 voters between incumbent Republican Congressman David Valadao and Democratic challenger Emilio Huerta. Valadao was named one of the most corrupt Members of Congress. In Congress, Valadao abused his position for personal gain – benefiting his personal property worth millions. In California, Emilio Huerta went to bat for farmers – working for the United Farm Workers Union. The ad is airing on TV and digital platforms in the Fresno and Bakersfield media markets.

IA-03: “The Plan” details how Republican Congressman David Young’s Wall Street backers would benefit from privatizing Social Security, which Young defended, while Iowa seniors and families would pay the price. The ad is airing on broadcast, cable, and digital platforms in the district. “The Plan” is running simultaneously with the IA-03 version of HMP’s national ad, “Just Can’t.”

IL-12: “Loser” spotlights Republican Congressman Mike Bost’s out-of-touch, losing record with his district on Southern Illinois’ economy. Bost voted to fast-track trade deals that could hurt Southern Illinois and even supported tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. The ad is airing on broadcast and cable in the St. Louis media market.

MI-01: “For You” continues to emphasize Republican nominee Jack Bergman’s out-of-touch record with MI-01 voters – as stated in his own words. Bergman said “we need to privatize” Social Security, wants to privatize veterans’ health care, and even stated that “there are certain jobs that, whether we like it or not, will be better preformed somewhere outside of our country.” The ad is airing on TV in the Traverse City and Marquette media markets.

MI-07: “Everything” continues holding Republican Congressman Tim Walberg accountable for being out-of-touch with MI-07 voters on economic issues. Walberg voted for every single trade deal since he’s been in Congress, took $140,000 in campaign cash from special interests outsourcing American jobs, and voted to give them tax breaks. The ad is airing on broadcast TV and digital platforms in the Lansing media market.

PA-16: HMP is going on air in PA-16 with an ad spotlighting what a “Sucker” Republican nominee Lloyd Smucker is for Donald Trump. Smucker still supports Trump even after the Access Hollywood tape revealed Trump boasting about sexual assault. Smucker is a loyal Trump supporter despite Trump’s myriad of offensive statements towards women. In contrast, Christina Hartman is standing up to Trump and his agenda and will be an independent voice in Congress.

TX-23: “Belittled” holds Republican Congressman Will Hurd responsible for putting party before county by continuing to leave the door open to voting for Donald Trump even after Trump belittled a Gold Star family. The ad is airing on broadcast and digital platforms in the San Antonio media market. “Belittled” is running simultaneously with the TX-23 version of HMP’s national ad, “Just Can’t,” which began airing in the district last Tuesday.
