American Action Network to Spend $750,000 Against Ami Bera (CA-07)

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today announced they will be spending $750,000 in California’s 7th congressional district race between liberal Congressman Ami Bera and center-right candidate Doug Ose. The indepedent expenditures will include broadcast TV ads and digital advertising in mid-October. 

“Californians know that behind Ami Bera’s empty rhetoric is his troubling partisan voting record of defending Obamacare when it’s costing families more,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for American Action Network. “From budgets to bipartisanship, Ami Bera has broken his promises to California voters and instead has become a rubber stamp for the extreme agenda of his wine-and-dine friend Nancy Pelosi.” 

This is part of a first round of announced spending totaling $8 Million in nine districts across the country along with AAN’s sister organization, the Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC. During the 2012 election cycle, independent expenditures of AAN and CLF were rated the #1 and #2 Highest “Return on Investment” of any conservative outside spenders. 

The American Action Network is a 501(c)(4) 'action tank' that creates, encourages and promotes center-right policies based on the principles of freedom, limited government, American exceptionalism, and strong national security. The American Action Network's primary goal is to put our center-right ideas into action by engaging the hearts and minds of the American people and spurring them into action to advance our center-right policy agenda. The Network is chaired by former Senator Norm Coleman (MN) and its board includes Fred Malek, former Congressman Tom Reynolds (NY), and former Congressman Vin Weber (MN).
