GOP 7th CD candidate Jason Church’s latest TV ad praises President Trump for the killing of Iranian Gen Qassem Soleimani, saying “he had it coming.”
Church also suggests in the ad that Soleimani may have supplied the IED that injured him during a tour of Afghanistan in 2012. The campaign didn’t immediately provide documentation to support the suggestion.
The campaign said the spot will run district-wide on cable, but didn’t disclose the size of the buy.
In the spot, Church praises Trump, saying his “bold leadership is crushing our enemies.”
“I’ve always supported President Trump,” Church says in the ad. “He stands up. He tells the hard truths, and he fights back. Send me to Congress to help him do it.”
Church faces state Sen. Tom Tiffany, R-Minocqua, in the Feb. 18 primary. The general election is May 12.
