A Super PAC that has the stated goal of protecting the people from “an army of left-wing activists” has a new commercial endorsing Marsha Blackburn for the U.S. Senate.
That PAC, called the Senate Leadership Fund, released their commercial this week.
According to the PAC’s website, the organization is devoted to protecting and expanding the Republican Senate majority. Members of the organization also say they want to stop the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Chuck Schumer from gaining more power.
“The $1.3 million ad buy will run statewide on a combination of broadcast and cable television, radio and digital,” according to a press release the organization put out this week.
No one at the Senate Leadership Fund returned a request for comment Friday.
The ad about Blackburn, entited “Tenacity,” highlights Blackburn’s working class background, along with President Trump’s full support of her candidacy.
“Phil Bredesen is a liberal elitist who will oppose President Trump’s agenda at every turn,” said Chris Pack, spokesman for the Senate Leadership Fund.
“Marsha Blackburn has the support of President Trump and is the only candidate who can be trusted to carry out his agenda that has the economy roaring back to life.”
The ad describes Blackburn as “a go-getter” who sold educational textbooks door-to-door to pay for her college education.
The video shows Trump endorsing her for the U.S. Senate at a recent rally as she stood next to him.
According to the Senate Leadership Fund’s website, “ all of Washington—including the U.S. Senate—is under new management, and we are breaking down the freedom-choking, job-killing, big-spending agenda of former President Obama and his liberal cronies in Congress.”
Blackburn’s opponent is former Tennessee Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen.
That election is scheduled for Nov. 6.
As The Tennessee Star reported, critics have accused Bredesen of using less than honorable campaign tactics to win the seat that current U.S. Sen. Bob Corker is vacating.
