Ad scheduled to start airing tomorrow reminds that Peters is just an AOC follower.
DOWNERS GROVE, IL – Restoration PAC today announced a new statewide TV ad buy in the Michigan Senate race drawing the distinction between dynamic outsider John James and go-with-the-flow career politician Gary Peters.
Restoration PAC has been a strong supporter of James since 2017.
The :30 ad airs across Michigan starting Saturday and runs two weeks. The buy is approximately $280,000. It will be supplemented by at least $10,000 in digital advertising.
The new ad again hits Peters on his cagey support of the Green New Deal. Peters told the Detroit News he supports “many aspects” of the radical plan, but has been non-responsive about specifics.
“I can’t think of a contest anywhere in America where voters will have a starker choice,” said Restoration PAC founder Doug Truax. “On one hand, you have John James, a combat veteran and accomplished outsider with fresh ideas versus Gary Peters, a reliable, go-along career politician who supports many aspects of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.”
Restoration PAC’s first Michigan TV ad aired last November and focused on Peters’ non-specific support for the Green New Deal.
Restoration PAC was formed in 2015 and since has become one of the most effective conservative SuperPACs in America. It has focused primarily on U.S. Senate races but has also launched TV and digital advertising in the 2016 presidential race and several House races.
