The NRCC is running a new digital ad seeking to tie U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, D-La Crosse, to controversial comments made by some of his Dem colleagues.
Kind is one of five House Dems the National Republican Congressional Committee is targeting with the ad campaign. A spokesman said the overall campaign is a five-figure buy, but didn’t provide specifics on the Kind spot.
After police in a Minneapolis suburb shot a Black man to death, U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., tweeted, “No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”
The 15-second digital ad references those comments as the narrator says Nancy Pelosi and Dems in Congress have “lost their minds.”
The narrator adds they’re “now calling for violence” as the spot plays video of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., saying “we have to get more confrontational” if a Minneapolis police officer was found not guilty of killing George Floyd.
The narrator closes the spot, “Call Congressman Kind and tell him to stand up to Democrats’ attacks on law enforcement.”
