Boehner-Allied Group Launches New Ad Thanking Republicans for Funding Obama’s Amnesty Program (VIDEO)
The American Action Network, a group aligned with Speaker John Boehner, is running a new ad campaign thanking Republicans for funding Obama’s amnesty program.
This ad supporting pro-amnesty Rep. Renee Ellmers is running in North Carolina.
A group close to House Speaker John Boehner that’s been running anti-Conservative advertisements in support of President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty is now airing positive ads thanking liberal Republicans who supported funding executive amnesty earlier this week.
The Republican member at the center of this new leg of the pro-executive amnesty ad buy is Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Politico reports, with others including Reps. Susan Brooks (R-IN), Todd Young (R-IN), and Dan Benishek (R-MI) benefiting from the ads as well.
“The American Action Network, a group allied with House Republican leadership, is placing a six-figure buy for television advertisements to thank several GOP lawmakers for voting to fund the Department of Homeland Security,” Politico’s Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan wrote on Friday morning.
The new leg of the TV ad campaign costs $350,000 and comes after previous TV advertisements earlier in the week costing $400,000—before the Tuesday vote to fund executive amnesty in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill—ran against Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) and Jim Bridenstine (R-OK). Web ads were also run against other members including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).
Speaker Boehner passed amnesty funding this week with all 182 Democrats and just 75 Republicans.
Boehner needs to go.
