AAN Launches $225,000 Campaign in NY-01 Primary Against ‘Pelosi Republican’ George Demos

WASHINGTON – Today the American Action Network released an ad “California Cash” in the NY-01 primary, shedding light on “Pelosi Republican” George Demos whose campaign has relied on fundraising from prominent California liberals deeply supportive of Nancy Pelosi and President Obama. NY-01 is currently represented by ethics-plagued Congressman Tim Bishop and Demos faces Army reservist and center-right rising star Lee Zeldin in the June 24th primary. AAN’s $225,000 independent expenditure campaign includes a cable television buy running through primary election day, as well as forthcoming digital advertising and mail.

“George Demos thinks he can play Long Islanders for fools by trying to buy a seat in Congress with liberal California cash,” said AAN Communications Director Dan Conston. “Long Islanders deserve better this November than a choice between a ‘Pelosi Republican’ and a corrupt Democrat. George Demos is just wrong for Long Island.”

:30 Script:

Pelosi Republican George Demos pretends to be a conservative while raising money from his neighbors on the Upper East Side and liberals in California. 

Hoping to fool Long Island Republicans and buy himself our seat in Congress with money from supporters of Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. 

But no matter how hard he tries, George Demos’ California cash can’t hide the fact he’s in the Wrong State, and the Wrong Party.
