The Republican National Committee is launching a major ad attack against the Democrat’s “hyper partisan” election reform bill. The bill known as the “For the People Act” also H.R. 1 or S.1 to signify the importance of the legislation to the Democrats attacks free speech and completely restructures campaign finance law and will lead to a complete federal takeover of our elections. The RNC is reportedly putting six figures behind the ad blitz and targeting weak Senate Democrats to reject the bill.
Fox News reports:
“Democrats are attempting an egregious power grab through H.R. 1 that will fundamentally alter our entire election system and dismantle the integrity of the vote, but we will not let them get away with it,” RNC chair Ronna McDaniel told Fox News in a statement.
McDaniel emphasized that “the RNC is using every tool available” to counter what she charged is the “Democrats’ blatant hijacking of our election system that would give unfettered power to unelected D.C. bureaucrats and trample on free speech. This is the latest initiative in our continued commitment to maintaining confidence in our elections and protecting the vote.”
The ads will target voters in four key battleground states that are home to Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2022 whom the GOP considers vulnerable. Those lawmakers are Sens. Mark Kelly of Arizona, Raphael Warnock of Georgia, Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire. The RNC’s messaging is aimed at encouraging voters in the four states to put pressure on their Democratic senators through calls urging the politicians to oppose the congressional Democrats’ massive bill.
Among the messages in the digital ads are “Stop Ballot Trafficking – Radical Democrats are trying to take over our elections! Fight back,” “The Democrats want to spend your tax dollars to fund liberal candidates’ elections. We can’t let this happen! Stop them,” and “Stop H.R. 1 – Democrats are trying to use your hard-earned money to elect radical liberals. Take action.”
The RNC hopes to reach millions of voters in the massive campaign. The ads are set to be seen on platforms such as Facebook, Google Search, and local and national news sites.
