Another day, another ad in PA-12. This time, Club for Growth has chimed in for GOP hopeful Keith Rothfus.
The Conservative PAC released a new ad today, asking voters which candidate supports their views, and checking off Rothfus as the clear cut choice for the citizens of PA-12. The ad, titled “Views,” is airing in the Pittsburgh media market and its buy is estimated at $300k.
“This year, Pennsylvanians Have a good clear choice for congress,” the ad says. “Keith Rothfus supports the balanced budget amendment. Mark Critz opposes it. Rothfus will repeal Obamacare. Critz will not. Rothfus supports lower taxes. Critz says the gas tax should be higher.”
Critz campaign spokesperson Mike Mikus says that the group’s social-program killing agenda is the same agenda that Rothfus is supporting.
“It is not surprising that the Club for Growth – which supports privatizing Social Security, ending Medicare, and passing free trade agreements that kill American jobs – would attack Mark Critz because he opposes all of these issues while Keith Rothfus supports them,” said Mikus. “Mark Critz is fighting to create jobs for Western Pennsylvania, and to protect Social Security and Medicare, while Keith Rothfus supports policies that ship jobs overseas and forcing our seniors to pay thousands of dollars more for their health care.”
It’s the second anti-Critz ad of the day, as YG Action Network released a scathing ad connecting Critz to President Obama and his notorious gaffe in 2008 about Western PA voters. As ads are a regularity in PA-12, it’s your move, pro-Critz PACs.
