NRCC Launches Digital Ad Campaign Demanding Democrats Support More Freedom For Working Moms NRCC | April 30th, 2013
Ads Target 20 Vulnerable Democrats Who Have Remained Silent On This Crucial Issue
In advance of The Working Families Flexibility Act vote scheduled next week, the National Republican Congressional Committee is launching digital banner ads today targeting 20 vulnerable Democrat Members of Congress and their continued silence on this important issue. The Working Families Flexibility Act, which allows for private sector employees to have paid time off, is a crucial issue for women and working families. The Committee is launching these geo-targeted ads on blogs and websites that are targeted towards women, families and working mothers.
The ads, which will link to a landing page with a petition encouraging the user to sign up and demand their Representative provide more freedom for working mothers, will run in local districts across the country to put pressure on Democrats to support this common-sense legislation.
“Most mothers in America are part of our country’s workforce, and House Democrats are forcing them to choose between work and family,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “It’s time for these out-of-touch Democrats to stand up for the thousands of working families in their districts and support this common-sense legislation.”
The following Members are being targeted in this ad campaign: Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-01), Ron Barber (AZ-02), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09), Ami Bera (CA-07), Julia Brownley (CA-26), Raul Ruiz (CA-36), Scott Peters (CA-52), Elizabeth Esty (CT-05), Patrick Murphy (FL-18), Joe Garcia (FL-26), Brad Schneider (IL-10), Bill Enyart (IL-12), Cheri Bustos (IL-17), Collin Peterson (MN-07), Mike McIntyre (NC-07), Tim Bishop (NY-01), Carolyn Maloney (NY-12), Pete Gallego (TX-23), Jim Matheson (UT-04), and Nick Rahall (WV-03).
