The ads focus on Barletta’s votes for trade deals and the positions Republican candidates Paul Addis and Jeff Bartos have on them.
“Pennsylvanians deserve to know why Congressman Barletta voted to fast track TPP and supported deals with Korea, Colombia, and Panama that hurt American workers and cost us jobs. When push comes to shove, an ethically challenged career politician like Congressman Barletta can only be counted on to fight for his wealthy special interest backers. Pennsylvania workers and families deserve far better,” Democratic party spokesman Max Steele said in a statement.
The ad, a 30-second video, will be pushed on Facebook and Twitter targeting voters using a mix of geotargeting, likely focused in Barletta’s district, and voters across the state who will likely have a positive response to the ad.
Digital ad buys, especially ones with Facebook and Twitter, often do not have large amounts of money behind them, especially early in the campaign, but will likely grow as more is learned about the midterm electorate.
