NRCC Paid Web Ad Highlights Casey’s Efforts in Getting Barack Obama Elected
NRCC | May 15, 2014

Entitled “Meet Nick Casey,” the Ad Attacks Casey for His Support of Obama and His Hateful Rhetoric on the Campaign Trail in 2008

WASHINGTON –The National Republican Congressional Committee is coming right after Nick Casey Jr., Democratic nominee in West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. Within days of Casey Jr. being declared the winner of the Democratic primary, the NRCC launched a paid web video entitled “Meet Nick Casey.” The video highlights Casey’s time campaigning for Barack Obama in 2008 and takes aim at Casey’s hateful rhetoric in which he accuses John McCain of counting on ignorant, inbred, and racist West Virginians for votes. McCain ended up winning 55% of the vote in the 2nd District.

“Nick Casey Jr.’s efforts to get Barack Obama elected President in 2008 have given West Virginia a War on Coal, ObamaCare, and an agenda that is only causing suffering for hard working West Virginia families.” said NRCC Spokesman Ian Prior. “The last thing those West Virginian families need is another Obama Democrat in Congress that will join Obama’s liberal, anti-coal agenda the minute he sets foot in Washington.”

“Meet Nick Casey” can be seen here:

VOICEOVER: Are you ignorant? Are you inbred? Are you racist?  That is the kind of hateful rhetoric Nick Casey used while campaigning for coal-killer-in-chief Barack Obama.

VOICEOVER: As one of Obama’s biggest backers, Nick Casey stopped at nothing to get him elected.

VOICEOVER: Now Obama’s war on coal is hurting West Virginia families and is costing our state jobs and opportunities.

VOICEOVER: Call Nick Casey at 304-345-2000 and tell him Obama’s War on Coal is wrong for West Virginia.

 

Are you ignorant? Are you inbred? Are you racist? That is the kind of hateful rhetoric Nick Casey used while campaigning for coal-killer-in chief Barack Obama.
