More Trade and China in New Critz Ad (Watch Video)

Mark Critz, trade warrior. That’s the message that the Democrat from Johnstown continues to hammer in his second television ad of the general election.

“I’m Mark Critz, and we just need a chance to compete,” says the Congressman, after imagining new factories in western Pa. “That’s why I’ve voted against every bad trade deal. I’m against tax breaks for outsourcing, and it’s time to stop China from cheating.”

He tosses a zinger at his opponent, too, saying, “Keith Rothfus supports the trade deals costing us jobs and supports tax breaks for outsourcing.”

China and trade issues have been at the forefront of the general election campaign so far, thanks in large part to a sustained push by Critz and allied Democratic groups (like the SEIU, AFSCME, etc).

Rothfus, a Republican attorney from Allegheny County, has recently gotten the message. Instead of emphasizing debt for debt’s sake, his campaign has begun to cast spending supported by Critz and other Democrats as “sending billions to China.”

PoliticsPA is seeking comment from his campaign about the ad.

  1. Again, the Critz campaign emphasizes Keith’s campaign message. As the endorsed candidate of the Chamber of Commerce, Keith will follow their wishes. They want tax breaks for outsourcing jobs. They want bad trade deals for Americans. They are paying for Keith’s campaign and he – with his training as a millionaire attorney for corporate multinationals – will do what his client wants. So, suck it up losers, Keith is going to ship as many jobs to China as he can and make you pay for it through tax breaks. What the Chamber wants, the Chamber gets,

  2. Thats the kind of Congressman like Mark Critz that fights for workers of the 12th district. We tax payers are tired of giving our money to corportation to send our jobs over seas. I’ve been checking his votes and he is fighting for jobs that stay here in Pa. I will be supporting Congressman Critz. We need jobs here no outsouring jobs like his opponant supports.
