National Republican Congressional Committee running ads against Rep. Loebsack
The National Republican Congressional Committee has begun running ads against U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-Mt. Vernon), attacking him for supporting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The ad opens with a match being struck and an announcer saying: “You know the old saying….fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Will Dave Loebsack fool you again?”
It then notes Loebsack support for ARRA, and asks whether he’ll support President Obama’s Americans Jobs Act. It then shows Loebsack’s phone number.
“What will Dave Loebsack do? Tell Dave Loebsack: don’t burn us again,” the announcer says.
Brian Fristch, political director for Loebsack’s campaign, said “Iowans are sick of these constant negative attacks.”
“If Republicans in Washington want to tell Iowans that increasing taxes on working class Iowa families is the position of their candidates, they should step up and say so, instead of once again hiding behind attack ads,” he said.
Fristch noted tax relief was the largest piece of ARRA, and said 99 percent of working Iowans received average tax relief of $1,115 due to the bill.
“Dave’s focus is, and always will be, fighting for an economy that actually works for Iowa families and businesses,” he said.
