The conservative American Action Network is again hitting U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, D-La Crosse, on the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 bill as the package heads back to the House.
The latest digital ad is an addition to a previous campaign the group had announced targeting Dem House members. AAN added the digital ad knocking Kind and another hitting U.S. Rep. Jared Golden, D-Maine, pushing the overall campaign into the six figures. Along with the two new digital ads, the group said it’s doing digital search advertising in 11 districts and phone calls in 52.
The narrator in the spot says Kind’s “party bosses” want his vote for the bill that they say is for COVID, but less than 10 percent goes to public priorities such as vaccines. The narrator adds “a freight train of frivolous spending” includes $350 billion for bailouts of mismanaged states such as New York and California.
“Tell Kind hit the brakes on Pelosi’s plan,” the narrator says. “It’s too costly, too liberal, too corrupt.”
