Long campaign asks TV stations to stop airing deceptive Herrera Beutler ad

first_imgLONGVIEW — The Carolyn Long campaign Friday asked media outlets to stop airing a TV advertisement supporting Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, calling the ad “inaccurate and deceptive.”The Congressional Leadership Fund, a political action committee that focuses on electing and supporting Republican representatives, released the ad on Oct. 26.“Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Battle Ground) cut middle-class taxes, saving Washington families $2,300,” a voiceover in the ad says. “Now 4 million jobs have been created and unemployment is at a 50-year low. Carolyn Long would take us backward. Liberal Long is part of the resistance, joining (House Minority Leader Nancy) Pelosi to oppose your tax cut and supporting government-run healthcare, almost doubling the debt. Long. Pelosi. Higher taxes. Lost jobs.”About 1.34 million jobs have been added to the market between when the tax cut bill went into effect on Jan. 1 and September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. (Job creation in August and September are projections.)This growth is in line with similar periods going back five years and is not related to the tax cut bill, the Long campaign’s counsel said in a press release Friday.“Congressional Leadership Fund is making a demonstrably false claim, which misrepresents the impact of the Republican tax bill in order to deceive voters about its impact,” Long’s campaign counsel said in a press release Friday.last_img
