AAN Releases Pro-House Immigration Reform Ad in CA-23: “Fighting”

Wed, 2013-08-21   Countering special interest groups attacking House efforts, AAN lauds & urges to continue work to secure the border

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network launched a $65,000 broadcast, cable, and digital ad campaign in CA-23 today lauding Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s leadership on key issues like working to secure the border. It counters recent local initiatives by special interest groups attacking House immigration reform efforts. Watch the ad below:


The issue advocacy ad will run for two weeks on broadcast TV and on Fox News in the Bakersfield media market and will be accompanied by a digital ad buy.

“Congressman McCarthy has stood strong for his constituents from fighting wasteful spending and Obamacare to working to secure the border,” said AAN Communications Director Dan Conston. “The House has the right approach moving forward with conservative immigration reform in a methodical way to fix our broken border and help our economy grow. CA-23 residents should ignore the misleading special interests and call Congressman McCarthy and urge him to continue fighting to secure the border.”  

This is the latest in AAN’s pro-reform efforts. AAN has spent well in excess of $1 million on advertising, polling, policy studies, grasstops, and grassroots supporting immigration reform since March.


Why are special interests attacking Kevin McCarthy? Because Kevin fights for us, not  them.

As Congress takes on the tough issues this fall, Kevin’s fighting to create jobs, and cut wasteful spending.

He’s leading the fight to repeal Obamacare.

On immigration, Kevin’s got the conservative approach we need, that starts with securing the border first.

Call Kevin McCarthy. Call him to keep fighting to secure the border, and keep fighting for us.

Courtney Parella

Communications Director

WSJ: Americans Want Congress to Focus on the Basics, AAN & Crossroads GPS Poll Shows
Republicans and Democrats alike want Congress to pass an annual budget, drive down college costs and preserve Medicare for future generations. Splits emerge over more divisive issues like approving the Keystone XL pipeline, changing the Affordable Care Act, or repealing it entirely. Those are just some of the conclusions from a recent nationwide poll commissioned by Crossroads GPS and the American Action Network, two groups that back congressional Republicans.

Notes From Norm: Weakening Immigration Reform
“The Partnership for a New American Economy, Americans for Tax Reform, and the Tea Party Express released a new survey today of Tea Party-aligned Republican primary voters’ attitudes toward immigration reform. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Tea Party voters are strongly supportive of immigration reform. More specifically, 71% of voters support getting immigration reform done this year. Even more compelling, 69% of voters would support a candidate who is in favor of broad immigration reform over one who supports only border security legislation.”
