Hitting Airwaves Today — DCCC Ad Campaign Targeting House Republicans & David Young for Supporting the Dangerous & Divisive Trump

Seven-Figure Ad Campaign Begins Today and Runs Through the Republican Convention

The DCCC is launching an unprecedented seven figure national advertising campaign, starting today, to highlight that House Republicans have repeatedly put their Party over the good of our country in standing by Donald Trump. Just as the Conventions begin and general election voters truly start to engage, the Committee is taking this unprecedented step – earlier than ever before – to set the stage with two ads “Standards” and “Sidekick,” which target independent women across the country. In Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, the ads will appear on national cable news networks, as well as lifestyle and entertainment channels, like Food Network, USA, TNT, HGTV and Bravo.

“Congressman Young vowed to speak up against Trump when he disagrees with him, but Young has lacked the courage to stand up to Trump as he attacks the vulnerable, intentionally divides America, and says things that are dangerous to our national security,” said DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law. “This ad campaign is hitting the airwaves now, and will clarify for voters that David Young has decided to put his political party before what’s best for Iowa and the country.” 

The ads are running today through the Republican National Convention, and target independent women, 25+ years in age.

This ad campaign will be highly targeted to key demographics and will appear in homes across the country, on both national news networks and targeted programming.  It will be customized and targeted based on sophisticated targeting of persuadable voters.

Click HERE to watch “Standards”

House Republicans who stand by Donald Trump are putting their party over the good of the country, and are blindly putting party loyalty before their values, morals and standards.

Like bystanders to the class yard bully, House Republicans’ inaction and participation further emboldens Trump to attack people, including Latinos, women, veterans, disabled people and so many other Americans.
