DCCC Releases TV Ad Targeting Keith Rothfus’ Support of Outsourcing to China
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today launched an Independent Expenditure campaign TV ad hitting Keith Rothfus (PA-12) on protecting tax breaks for companies that ship American jobs overseas. With middle class families struggling, Western Pennsylvania can’t afford to lose more jobs to places like China. Keith Rothfus supports policies that would do exactly that. The DCCC ad began running today.
Script of DCCC IE AD “Shanghai”:
Person on the Street: That’s ridiculous! You can’t do that
Person on the Street: That’s killing the middle class.
Person on the Street: What’s next with this guy?
Announcer: Rothfus worked for a law firm that had a “strategic alliance” with a Chinese firm.
Announcer: Maybe that’s why he’s signed a pledge that protected tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.
Person on the Street: Drive past the relics of these steel mills here in western Pennsylvania and tell me we don’t need jobs here.
Person on the Street: I can’t believe this.
Person on the Street: He’s not looking out for the average Joe.
Person on the Street: All these jobs are over in Shanghai now.
Person on the Street: I wouldn’t vote for him if he was the only one that was running.
