AAN Launches Ad “Fiscal Driskell” Against Liberal Gretchen Driskell

TV and Digital Ads Kick Off AAN’s $350,000 Campaign in MI-07

WASHINGTON – Today, the American Action Network (@AAN) released the ad “Fiscal Driskell” against liberal Gretchen Driskell in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District race. The ad exposes Gretchen Driskell’s record of hitting Michigan families with tax hikes while rewarding herself with taxpayer-funded pay raises.

“Gretchen Driskell is a tax-and-spend liberal making life harder on Michigan families and small businesses,” said Ruth Guerra, AAN spokeswoman. “With the cost of living rising, Driskell supported higher taxes on Michigan families and yet rewarded herself with taxpayer-funded raises. The last thing Michigan families need in Washington is an out-of-touch liberal like Gretchen Driskell.”

The ad will air on broadcast in the Lansing media market beginning Tuesday, October 25, as part of AAN’s $350,000 independent expenditure campaign in MI-07. A 15-second version will run on digital platforms. American Action Network (501c4) and its sister organization, Congressional Leadership Fund, have announced general election spending of over $40 million in 32 districts nationwide.

Script:

ANNCR: The cost of living in Michigan is always on the rise, but when it comes to all things fiscal,

We don’t want to be stuck with Gretchen Driskell.

Driskell supported higher property taxes on Michigan families.

She even supported higher gas taxes, but took taxpayer-funded pay raises for herself.

So, when it comes to all things fiscal, Michigan can’t afford Gretchen Driskell.
