CLF Launches “Showdown” Ad Campaign Against Pete Gallego (TX-23)

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today released the ad “Showdown” in Texas’ 23rd congressional district race, confronting liberal Congressman Pete Gallego on his Obamacare support at the expense of Texans.

In Congress, Pete Gallego has been a staunch Obamacare defender, repeatedly voting against relief from the health care law that’s costing Texas families and jobs.

Airing on San Antonio broadcast and cable, the ad is part of the combined $1 Million in independent expenditures from CLF and its sister organization, American Action Network. The “Showdown” ad campaign will also include online advertising.

Gallego faces former CIA officer and center-right rising star Will Hurd in November.

“Instead of standing up for Texans, Pete Gallego sided with President Obama and fought for his health care law even though it’s hurting Texans with costs they can’t afford,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the Congressional Leadership Fund. “The last thing Texans need in Congress is a liberal like Pete Gallego to defend Obamacare while they pay the price.”


ANNCR: Obamacare and Texas: A showdown worth fighting

But Pete Gallego wasn’t on our side.

Gallego supported Obamacare.

Higher premiums for Texans.

Higher taxes, forcing small business to cut jobs

A two trillion dollar price tag. Reckless and wrong.

And yet Gallego still defends it…

…Voting to keep Obamacare in place.

Pete Gallego: Wrong on Obamacare. Too liberal for Texas.
