Crossroads GPS, US Chamber launch new ads for Tillis
Crossroads GPS returns to the Affordable Care Act in its latest ads criticizing U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and boosting her opponent, Thom Tillis. The U.S. Chamber ads turn to racing legend Richard Petty to boost Tillis' campaign.Posted — Updated
"Thom Tillis will replace Obamacare with quality health care that works," says the Crossroads GPS ad, which hammers on the topic of health care.
Tillis, the Republican state House speaker from Mecklenburg County, is trying to unseat U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, a first-term Democrat from Greensboro.
Some political analysts had expected the Affordable Care Act, what some people call "Obamacare," to lose its political punch after outside groups like Crossroads and Americans for Prosperity used the issue repeatedly this spring. Crossroads is using the vote to once again emphasize Hagan's cooperation with President Barack Obama.
"This is the beginning of a multi-week effort in the final stretch to highlight Kay Hagan’s partisan record," said Paul Lindsay, a spokesman for the group. "Her support of the Obama agenda is a central part of that record and are a clear contrast to Thom Tillis’ work on behalf of North Carolina families."
Crossroads GPS is one of a pair of nonprofits that operate under the Crossroads brand. It is affiliated with Karl Rove, the former political adviser to President George W. Bush.
