ICYMI: DCCC Billboard Spotlights Amanda Adkins’ Opposition to Gas Tax Relief

In case you missed it, the DCCC launched a billboard campaign in the Kansas Third District this week spotlighting Amanda Adkins’ opposition to plans that would lower gas prices and save Kansans’ hard-earned money.

The billboard appears just off I-35 near Roeland Park – reaching Kansans as they drive to work, school, and around the community.

The Hill: House Democratic campaign arm targets GOP candidate over gas prices

Key points:

  • The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) launched a billboard in Kansas targeting Republican House candidate Amanda Adkins over rising gas prices in an apparent attempt to flip the script on the issue.

  • Politico was the first outlet to report on the billboard located in Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District, which is represented by Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kan.).

  • The billboard reads, “Pain at the pump? Amanda Adkins opposes has tax cuts.”

  • The district’s House race, which will likely be between Davids and Adkins, has recently been defined by the debate over gas prices and the gas tax.

  • Davids has called for suspending the federal gas tax in an effort to decrease gas prices, which have skyrocketed in recent months. In March, Davids ran a radio ad highlighting the issue and hitting Adkins for not supporting a gas tax holiday.

  • Adkins’ campaign called the federal gas tax holiday “political theater” in a statement to The Hill.
