Brent Bozell, Chairman of ForAmerica, a 3 million strong online conservative organization, has launched the first ad of the 2014 cycle and the target is Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell. The McConnell ad, “Whose Side Are You On,” is running in his home state of Kentucky via Google Display (Google selects key sites on the Google network in Kentucky) and on the Drudge Report, FoxNews.com, The Daily Caller and through Facebook. It’s a five figure online buy to start. The ad links to a petition asking conservatives to sign to let congressional Republicans know they are watching and will hold the GOP accountable when they go against the principles they claim to support.
Conservatives Launch First Ad of 2014 Election Cycle Against McConnell
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – ForAmerica Chairman L. Brent Bozell III today announced the 3 million strong social media organization is launching the first ad of the 2014 election cycle against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for his capitulation to President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in fiscal cliff negotiations. The ad will run in the Senator’s home state of Kentucky and in Washington, DC on websites including the Drudge Report, FoxNews.com, and the Daily Caller.
“Conservatives have had it with the Republican Party. The party that was once for freedom and limited government no longer exists. We now have two tax and spend parties in Washington,” said Bozell. “Senator McConnell often talks a tough game and sells himself as a conservative, but his actions speak louder than his words. His role as President Obama’s bag man in the latest fiscal cliff disaster clearly demonstrates that Senator McConnell is more interested in the art of the bad deal rather than standing up and fighting for conservative principles. It is time for conservatives to stand up to politicians in both parties who talk conservative but govern as liberals,” Bozell concluded.
