Money Talks: DeSantis not returning cash to donor who called Obama N-word

“Money talks, and by not returning his contributions from a racist who freely uses racial slurs Ron DeSantis is sending a message that these comments are ok,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Ron DeSantis and his ever-growing list of white supremacist supporters might find this type of racist rhetoric acceptable, but the people of Florida don’t.”

AP: DeSantis not returning cash to donor who called Obama N-word

September 20, 2018

Republican U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis’ campaign for Florida governor says he will no longer accept money from a donor who used the N-word in a tweet about President Barack Obama.

But campaign spokesman Stephen Lawson said Thursday that money they’ve already taken from Steven Alembik’s company, SMA Communications, won’t be returned because it was already spent on the primary election.

WATCH: Danny on Dean

#TBT! Before Dean Heller and Danny Tarkanian take the stage with President Trump tonight in Las Vegas, we thought we’d take a walk down memory lane.

We’re sure tonight will be all about unity, but just one short year ago, with Tarkanian and Heller locked in a bitter Senate primary fight, they weren’t what we’d call allies.

Here’s a round up of Tarkanian’s greatest hits against Heller, to start the night off on the right — or, at least, the honest — foot:

REALLY? Heller Calls Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Allegations a “Hiccup”

“Nevadans are finally seeing who the real Dean Heller is: a rubber-stamp Republican who will casually dismiss sexual assault allegations against political allies — but only on a top-secret GOP conference call,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman. “Voters should wonder what else Heller is saying behind closed doors — and whether he’s thinking of anyone but himself.”

Nevada Independent: Heller predicts Kavanaugh confirmation to Supreme Court despite ‘hiccup’
By Riley Snyder | September 19th, 2018

“Republican Sen. Dean Heller is predicting that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the nation’s highest court despite the “hiccup” of a recent allegation that the judge sexually assaulted a woman when they were both teenagers.”
“In a ‘VIP’ conference call arranged by the Nevada Republican Party on Wednesday ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit to the state, Heller — who is running for re-election against Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen […]

WATCH: Mike DeWine Says He’d Sign Bill Restricting Abortion for Rape Victims

Watch here

“Tonight Mike DeWine gave a nervous, angry performance that highlighted just how out-of-touch he is,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Even worse, DeWine said he would sign extreme legislation that would criminalize abortion for rape victims and severely restrict women’s health. Mike DeWine’s agenda is dangerous for Ohio women and they can’t afford him as their next Governor.”

New Ad Slams Mike DeWine for Putting Himself Before Ohio Police Officers

Watch the ad here

Ahead of tonight’s Ohio Governor debate in Dayton, American Bridge is launching a new ad slamming Attorney General Mike DeWine for putting himself ahead of Ohio law enforcement. Last month, the AP reported that DeWine refused to replace expired body armor for law enforcement officers for over a year. But while DeWine was ignoring the pleas of the officers he was endangering, he apparently was scheduled to get himself fitted for a brand new bulletproof vest.

The ad is geotargeted to swing voters in Dayton and begins running this afternoon before the debate.

“Police officers were literally begging Mike DeWine to replace their expired protective vests, but he ignored them for over a year,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Even worse, while he was endangering police officers in the field by denying them the proper protection, DeWine was scheduled to get […]

Quick Clip: Rick Scott’s “Bus Tour” Is Going Terribly

Scott is cancelling events and running
from constituents as protests plague his tour

Rick Scott’s plane bus tour is off to a horrible start.

Here are a few of the ways Scott’s tour has stumbled in its first week:

Last week, Scott ditched his stop at one Florida donut shop for another one with fewer protestors.
Scott was called out for using his private plane between campaign stops.
Yesterday, Scott was “besieged” by protestors who blame him for the toxic algae blooms and Red Tide plaguing Florida waters.
And just this morning, Scott announced he’s cancelling a stop in red tide-affected Naples.

 

Tallahassee’s Spectrum News even highlighted the anti-Scott protests at yesterday’s stop, which were so loud they forced Scott to leave his event after just ten minutes.

“Childish and Unappealing,” “Sexist,” “Petty”: What Arizonans Are Saying About Martha McSally’s Debunked Campaign Ads

Arizona Daily Star: Letter: What is McSally saying?
By Bette E. Bunker Richards | September 12, 2018

“As a family member who has supported and assisted active duty military members my entire life, I am thoroughly disgusted with Martha McSally’s political ads.”
“Does she think that military family members do not also serve our country? My family members fought — and sometimes died — for the right of Americans to protest any and all government actions.”
“Obviously, McSally thinks I, and other military family members, have no right to protest and she did not fight for that.”
“Why doesn’t she talk about her record as a representative instead of only her past military experience?”
