Conservatives Target McConnell in first ads of 2014 cycleJanuary 9, 2013
Conservatives Launch First Ad of 2014 Election Cycle Against McConnell
Mitch McConnellâ€¦Obamaâ€™s Bag Man
ALEXANDRIA, Va. â€“ 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.Â The ad will run in the Senatorâ€™s home state of Kentucky and in Washington, DC on websites including the Drudge Report, FoxNews.com, and the Daily Caller.
â€śConservatives have had it with the Republican Party.Â The party that was once for freedom and limited government no longer exists.Â We now have two tax and spend parties in Washington,â€ť said Bozell.Â â€śSenator McConnell often talks a tough game and sells himself as a conservative, but his actions speak louder than his words. His role as President Obamaâ€™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.Â It is time for conservatives to stand up to politicians in both parties who talk conservative but govern as liberals,â€ť Bozell concluded.
