WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Yellowhammer News’ Jeff Poor reported on Club for Growth Action’s new television ad in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District. The ad highlights how Jeff Coleman has donated to Democrats, while not giving a dime to President Trump. Club for Growth PAC has endorsed Barry Moore in the race.
On Tuesday, [Club for Growth Action] told Yellowhammer News exclusively it was starting television spots attacking Alabama Second Congressional District Republican hopeful Jeff Coleman for campaign contributions, specifically those given to former Democrat Hawaii governor and U.S. congressman Neil Abercrombie.
The 30-second spot focuses on Abercrombie’s support for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). It claims Coleman indirectly financially supported Pelosi while not offering any financial support for Donald Trump in his 2016 presidential bid against Hillary Clinton.
“Hawaii is a long way from Alabama,” the ad’s narrator says. “So why did Jeff Coleman give thousands in campaign cash to a liberal Democrat running for Congress there? True facts: The guy Coleman helped went on to back Nancy Pelosi for speaker. All tolled, Coleman has handed out $39,000 to candidates. But when Donald Trump faced Hillary Clinton, Coleman didn’t give him a dime. Jeff Coleman — his money helped Nancy Pelosi, not Donald Trump.”
