Club for Growth [Action], a fiscal conservative political action committee, who has been working to find a candidate challenging Rep. Liz Cheney to endorse, released a 30-second ad branding Cheney as a “Clinton Republican.”
With a slideshow of photos of Hillary Clinton, the ad starts, “Remember? She benefited from a famous political last name. She sided with Nancy Pelosi and attacked President Trump when he was in office. She supported impeachment and she continues to attack President Trump today.”
“Hillary Clinton? No, Liz Cheney,” the voice-over says as a photo of Clinton morphs into Cheney.
The ad is going to run on digital networks and NBC during primetime every night of the Olympics as well as during the opening and closing ceremonies in the designated market areas of Casper and Cheyenne.
Club for Growth [Action] spent $13,720 on TV ad slots, $18,000 on digital ads –like YouTube and Breitbart — and an estimated $9,000 on production costs, amounting to more than $40,000.
On the Club for Growth Foundation Scorecard, which is based on voting records on issues of “economic liberty,” Liz Cheney has a 64% lifetime rating, which leaves her tied for 120th in the House.
