The Democratic National Committee is now venturing into early presidential primary states to tar potential GOP White House hopefuls with blame for the ongoing government shutdown.
On the heels of its campaign targeting a slew of top Republican officials in their home states, the DNC began a new effort Wednesday zoning in on the first four 2016 primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, The RUN has learned.
A new robocall will pour into Iowa while Twitter, Facebook and Google ads will land in all four states.
Listen to the Iowa robocall — highlighting Sens. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul —HERE.
Hi, I’m calling on behalf of the DNC with a GOP Shutdown Alert.
Republicans in Congress like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul shut down the government over a week ago trying to gut Obamacare.
Because of their shutdown new USDA farm loans in Iowa have been halted and Iowa farmers aren’t receiving payments for programs they’re enrolled in.
Their shutdown is costing the economy up to $10 billion a week and they’re willing to force a default on our obligations.
Take action – call the Iowa GOP at (515) 282.8105 and demand that the GOP stop holding the economy hostage.
Paid for by the Democratic National Committee. (202) 863-8000. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
The DNC did not say exactly how many calls would be made into Iowa, only putting the total number of calls this week in the “hundreds of thousands.” Iowa becomes the sixth state to be targeted with DNC robocalls.
“We’ll continue to hold Republicans accountable until they end this manufactured crisis by holding a vote to fully fund the entire government and allow the nation to pay its bills. We’ll continue with additional targets in the coming days,” said DNC spokesman Michael Czin.
