American Action Network Launches New Ad As Part of Additional $1 Million Campaign in MN-08

$1 Million in final weeks for Television and Digital Advertising Campaign Against Against Rick Nolan

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network released today a new ad as part of an additional $1 million television and digital ad campaign in Minnesota's 8th congressional district. The candidate advocacy ad, “Again,” highlights Rick Nolan's decades-long support for higher taxes. “Again” will air on television in the Minneapolis media market and will be accompanied by a significant paid digital advocacy campaign. This is part of a recently-announced October ad campaign and comes in addition to the $700,00 AAN has spent in Minneapolis and Duluth.

“Rick Nolan has shown he desperately wants to raise taxes on Minnesotans, no matter the decade, no matter the cost,” said AAN Spokeswoman Brook Hougesen.

Watch “Again” here or by clicking the image. Read the script below.




In the seventies, Rick Nolan voted for a massive gas tax increase. Up to four hundred seventy-five percent.

One Democrat said another Nolan vote would put “our economy in a straightjacket”.

Now Nolan says he'd consider raising the gas tax. Again.

Nolan supports raising taxes on small businesses.

Destroying seven hundred thousand jobs.

Defeat radical Rick Nolan. He's for raising taxes and killing jobs.
