NEW ADS: Bruising Primaries Leave GOP Candidates Irreparably Damaged Ahead of General Election

Braun, Morrisey, and DeWine have been lambasted
for months by their fellow Republicans

Today, immediately following Senate primaries in Indiana and West Virginia, and the gubernatorial primary in Ohio, American Bridge released new digital ads targeting the newly minted Republican candidates. The ads ask Hoosiers, West Virginians, and Ohioans – if their new nominees’ fellow Republicans so thoroughly denounced them, why should any Republican voter have confidence in their candidacies?

The 30-second ads will play this week on social media in Indiana, West Virginia, and Ohio, targeted to Republican voters. Among the damaging attacks on their U.S. Senate and gubernatorial nominees that voters will hear straight from the mouths of their fellow Republicans are: 

  • “Mike Braun is just willing to say anything to get elected.” – Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN)
  • “The problem with Patrick Morrisey is he’s just not being honest.” – Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-WV)
  • “That’s what Mike DeWine represents, he is the establishment… he is a career politician.” – Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor (R-OH)

American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp said, “These nominees just survived bruising Republican primaries — and came away with their opponents’ damaging attacks still ringing in voters’ ears. If this is what fellow Republicans were willing to say about their nominees for Senate and Governor, how can any Republican trust them with their vote?”
