AAN Releases “Sidekick” Ad Campaign Against Pete Gallego

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today released the ad “Sidekick” in Texas’ 23rd congressional district race, highlighting Pete Gallego’s record as President Obama’s big spender in Congress.

Pete Gallego supports President Obama’s health care law that spends more than $2 Trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. And when President Obama wants more spending, Pete Gallego is his reliable defender – voting with Democrats 80% of the time.

This broadcast TV and online advertising buy is part of AAN’s $500,000 in independent expenditures in the TX-23 race. AAN’s sister organization, Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC, is spending $1.1 million in the race, bringing the combined independent expenditures of AAN and CLF to $1.6 Million.

“President Obama knows he can count on Pete Gallego to fight for his reckless liberal agenda in Congress,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for American Action Network. “From Obamacare to big government spending, Pete Gallego sticks it to Texas taxpayers while wearing his Obama badge.”

:30 Script:

ANNCR: He’s Obama’s top Texas sidekick: Congressman Pete Gallego.

When Obama wanted to spend, Gallego was there to help him.

Wasting our tax dollars to fund reckless big government.

Supporting Obamacare, a two trillion dollar price tag.

And when Obama asked Congress for more money to spend, Gallego sided with him.

Pete Gallego: A Washington yes man Obama can count on. A big liberal spender we just can’t afford.
