It’s 1996 all over again.
That year, it became clear just before the election that President Bill Clinton would easily win re-election over Republican nominee Bob Dole. In order to retain control of Congress, the GOP argued they were needed to keep a check on Pres. Clinton.
Republicans are hoping history repeats itself twenty years later as they focus on down-ballot races.
Among them is Senator Pat Toomey, who released a fifteen-second spot making this argument titled “Blank Check”.
“Katie McGinty could not name one thing she opposes Hillary Clinton on,” a male narrator begins.
“With McGinty, it’s a blank check for everything Hillary wants,” a female narrator adds.
“Pat Toomey will fight Clinton’s liberal agenda,” the male narrator concludes.
