CLF Releases “Crossroads” Ad Campaign Against Collin Peterson

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today released the ad “Crossroads” in Minnesota’s 7th congressional district race, highlighting Congressman Collin Peterson’s record of advancing his own interests at the expense of Minnesotans.

As a member of Congress, Collin Peterson enjoys special health care perks, but he makes Minnesotans bear the brunt of Obamacare. Collin Peterson has also taken advantage of car leases and luxury trips around the world – all on the taxpayer’s dime.

The ad will air on Minneapolis broadcast TV as part of CLF’s $500,000 in independent expenditures in the MN-07 race.

“For 23 years, Minnesotans have foot the bill for Collin Peterson to live high on perks and world-class travel,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for Congressional Leadership Fund. “Now with Collin Peterson voting to keep Obamacare and Nancy Pelosi, Minnesotans know they just can’t afford him in Washington anymore. It’s time for Collin Peterson to come home.”

:30 TV Ad Script:

ANNCR: After 23 years in Washington, Collin Peterson has lost his way.

Peterson used to be moderate but now supports Obama and Pelosi.

Peterson gets special healthcare perks, but stuck us with Obamacare.

Taxpayer funded car leases and luxury trips around the world, handing us the tab.

That’s why with our country at a crossroads, we can’t afford to follow Collin Peterson any further.
