American Action Network Kicks Off New $1.3 Million Ad Campaign

Includes First Ads of Year Targeting Liberal Members of Congress for Supporting Obamacare

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) is launching a new $1.3 million advertising campaign targeting liberal Members of Congress as well as conservative Members urging them to support an affordable, patient-centered health care plan. Over the next two weeks, national TV ads will run on CNN and MSNBC and local ads will air in 24 congressional districts nationwide. The ads highlight the failures of Obamacare and call on the Member of Congress to support more affordable, quality care.

“Americans were promised affordable and accessible health care, but instead they got higher premiums and fewer choices. It’s time for all Members of Congress to fix our broken healthcare system,” said Corry Bliss, AAN Executive Director. “As conservatives, we will continue to stand firm against those who oppose patient-centered reforms and remind Americans of their elected officials’ record on this important issue.”

AAN’s ads will pressure liberal Members of Congress representing districts won by President Donald Trump to ensure this legislative priority becomes a reality. The aforementioned districts include Dave Loebsack (IA-02), Cheri Bustos (IL-17), Tim Walz (MN-01), Collin Peterson (MN-07), Rick Nolan (MN-08), Jacky Rosen (NV-03), Matt Cartwright (PA-17), and Ron Kind (WI-03). Click here to view all districts.

With this campaign, AAN continues its aggressive, data-driven advertising campaigns, now totaling $5.2 million in the month of January, in support of a patient-centered, affordable healthcare system. To date, AAN’s Obamacare repeal and replace message has reached 49 congressional districts nationwide. Our digital ads have surpassed 10 million targeted views. Since Obamacare became law, AAN has been a significant advocate for repealing and replacing it with patient-centered reforms.
