NEW ADS: MDP Holds Senator Daines Accountable for History as ‘China Cheerleader”
After his years-long record of “not just working with the Chinese government but actively courting senior Communist Party officials,” Daines has tried pivoting to tough-on-China talk launching several TV ads about his “plan” to “hold China accountable and bring manufacturing jobs home” to the U.S. Conveniently, Daines’ ads decline to mention that the Senator spent years helping a multinational corporation start factories in China while that company was cutting thousands of American jobs. This ad, backed by a six-figure buy, will target Montanans on multiple digital platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
“Steve Daines spent part of his business career building factories in China and his time in Congress doing the ‘political bidding‘ of the Chinese government,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “So let’s be clear: Daines’ new talking points are nothing more than a desperate attempt to save his political career. This dishonest pivot is just further evidence that Montanans can’t trust him on the issues.”
