Kuster Campaign Releases New Ad, “Out of Touch”
CONCORD, N.H. – Congressional candidate Annie Kuster today released the seventh ad of the general election campaign. The new ad criticizes Congressman Bass for being out of touch with middle class New Hampshire families and the challenges they face.
Specifically, the new ad cites Congressman Bass’s record of supporting policies that encourage companies to ship jobs overseas, as well as his votes to raise his own pay while voting against raising the minimum wage.
The full script of the ad is below and the ad can be viewed HERE.
BRIAN BRESNAHAN: I don’t believe that Charlie Bass really understands what the middle class has to go through to make it day to day.
His support of outsourcing good American jobs has thrown a lot of people in this country out of work.
Charlie Bass voted against raising the minimum wage, but he voted to raise his own pay eight times.
Congressman Bass doesn’t get it at all.
I think Annie really cares about what happens to the people of New Hampshire.
KUSTER: I’m Annie Kuster, and I approve this message.
SCRIPT: His support of outsourcing good American jobs has thrown a lot of people in this country out of work.
