NEW AD: Why Won’t Fred Upton Stand Up To Scott Pruitt?

Today, American Bridge is launching a new digital ad that exposes incumbent Michigan Congressman Fred Upton’s (R-MI) failure to protect his constituents from Scott Pruitt’s corruption.

The ad will run on social media in Michigan, targeted to midterm voters. The 30-second video asks: “Why is Congressman Fred Upton afraid to fight for us?” and urges voters to call Upton’s Capitol Hill office to demand he stand up to Scott Pruitt.

Other members of Michigan’s congressional delegation have already called for Pruitt to resign.

“Despite the unprecedented corruption that Scott Pruitt has been caught engaging in at the EPA,Upton is afraid to stand up to him – and Michiganders are paying the price for it,” said American Bridge spokesperson Andrew Bates. “It’s time for Upton to put blind partisanship aside and put what’s right for Michigan first.”

And U.S. Representatives Fred Upton and Justin Amash are right there with them, jeopardizing health insurance and the wellbeing of people across Michigan.

“There are very few votes that define someone’s values like this one will.  Representatives Upton and Amash should do the right thing and oppose this reckless, partisan attack on people across Michigan.  This bill will kick millions off of their insurance, needlessly bails out big insurance companies, and strips nearly $1 trillion from healthcare funding, all in order to cut taxes for the rich.  If they  vote for it, they should fully expect to be held accountable by their constituents,” said American Bridge Vice President Shripal Shah.
