AAN Launches Ad “Strong Backer” Against Extreme Liberal Monica Vernon

AAN Doubles Investment in IA-01 Race to $800,000

WASHINGTON – Today, the American Action Network (@AAN) released its first ad against extreme liberal Monica Vernon in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District race. The ad, called “Strong Backer,” exposes Monica Vernon’s dangerous stance on issues of national security.

“Monica Vernon strongly supports the Iran nuclear deal even though it gives the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism billions of dollars,” said Ruth Guerra, spokeswoman for AAN. “Monica Vernon’s support for dangerous deals that empower terrorism is a risk Iowans can’t afford to take.”

The ad will air on Cedar Rapids broadcast and cable beginning Tuesday, October 25, as part of a now $800,000 independent expenditure campaign in IA-01, up from a previously announced $440,000 investment. A 15-second version will run on digital platforms. AAN and its sister super PAC Congressional Leadership Fund’s total announced general election spending to date is over $40 million in 32 districts nationwide.

Script:

ANNCR: A dangerous world.

Terrorists targeting America.

Yet Monica Vernon is a strong backer of the Iran Nuclear Deal.

A deal giving one hundred and fifty billion dollars to Iran, the world’s largest state
sponsor of terrorism.

Even they admit some of the money will go to terrorism.

Monica Vernon.

The deal she supports gives a country that chants “death to America” in their streets the
resources to bring that hatred to ours.
