A SNAKE AND A LIAR – NEW DSCC ADS SLAM HERSCHEL’ & OZ. The DSCC today released two new ads in the Georgia and Pennsylvania Senate races: In Georgia, “Cacophony” features news footage highlighting Walker’s long pattern of troubling behavior and lies, and in Pennsylvania, “Snake” focuses on how Oz is like a snake who will do, say, and sell anything to help himself – no matter who gets hurt.
DSCC CHAIRMAN SENATOR GARY PETERS REMINDS VOTERS WHAT’S AT STAKE THIS ELECTION. DSCC Chair Senator Gary Peters sat down with ELLE to discuss his family’s personal experience with abortion while also highlighting “why you still must vote this November.”
“THE MOST HEINOUS, ATROCIOUS ANSWER THAT DR. OZ COULD HAVE POSSIBLY UTTERED.” Voters are reading and watching a wave of news coverage highlighting “Dr. Oz’s awful answer on abortion” – slamming his call for ‘local political leaders’ to be involved in abortion decisions as “the most heinous, atrocious answer,” a “scary proposition for women,” and a gaffe that is “going to haunt” Oz’s campaign.
… AND DEMS WASTE NO TIME BLASTING OZ’S DISASTROUS DEBATE ANSWERS. Fetterman’s campaign released a new ad focusing on Dr. Oz’s dangerous answer on abortion, and the DSCC is out with a video on his out-of-touch admission that he thinks his Senate campaign is just like “a television show.” Pennsylvania leaders also held a press conference to “blast Oz.”
