AAN Launches $525,000 Campaign Thanking Members For Fighting For a Safer, Stronger America

The American Action Network released today a $525,000 campaign of TV ads, digital ads, and live phone calls in districts of Members of Congress fighting for a conservative agenda in Congress, including keeping America safe and economic and fiscal responsibility. The campaign consists of $350,000 of broadcast TV advertising in four districts, a six-figure digital ad campaign in 16 districts, and live calls to constituents in 75 districts.

“Many in Congress have been fighting for a strong conservative agenda, from policies that keep America safe to ones that instill greater fiscal and economic responsibility,” said AAN President Mike Shields. “We want their constituents to know about their strong records, and encourage constituents to support this agenda by calling and thanking their representatives for fighting for a safer, stronger America.”

The $350,000 TV campaign will consist of 500 grps (points) of broadcast TV plus conservative cable advertising in each of these four districts: Congresswoman Renee Ellmers, Raleigh market (NC-02); Congresswoman Susan Brooks, Indianapolis market (IN-05); Congressman Dan Benishek, Traverse City market (MI-01); and Congressman Todd Young, Indianapolis market (IN-09). View the Ellmers ad here.

There will also be a six-figure digital ad campaign in 16 districts calling on constituents to thank their members for “fighting for a safer, stronger America”. The sixteen districts are: Vern Buchanan (FL-16), John Carter (TX-31), Tom Cole (OK-04), Chris Collins (NY-27), Jeff Denham (CA-10), Tom Emmer (MN-06), Kay Granger (TX-12), John Kline (MN-02), Michael McCaul (TX-10), Candice Miller (MI-10), Kristi Noem (SD-AL), Devin Nunes (CA-22), Robert Pittenger (NC-09), Joe Pitts (PA-16), John Shimkus (IL-15), Glenn Thompson (PA-05). View an example of the digital ad here.

This comes on the heels of an AAN campaign launched earlier this week urging Members of Congress to support funding the Department of Homeland Security.
