MEDIA ADVISORY, Oct. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Life and Liberty PAC, a conservative organization committed to electing pro-life candidates and defeating pro-abortion supporters, today announced an Independent Expenditure radio ad campaign for the Special Election for Congress in Upstate New York.
Opening with audio of President Obama saying "an acorn doesn't fall far from the tree," the radio spot, titled "Acorn" takes aim at "Republican" candidate Dede Scozzafava, calling her "one liberal acorn falling right from Barack Obama's liberal tree."
Blasting Scozzafava for backing Obama's bailouts, most of his Socialized Medicine Scheme, Gay Marriage and Abortion "up to the day of delivery," the ad notes that Scozzafava was rated only 15 percent conservative last year, "worse than most Democrats."
Calling her a "tax-raising liberal," the spot also points to Scozzafava's support from "liberal labor unions, the left-wing Daily Kos Blog and even Acorn itself" as reasons conservatives and taxpayers should avoid her candidacy.
Describing the embattled GOP candidate as "Acorn's Choice, Not Our Choice," the spot, aimed at conservative voters, is designed to drive Republicans to Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman, who is closing on Scozzafava and Democrat Bill Owens in recent polls.
"The eyes of the nation are on New York's Twenty Third Congressional District as to which direction our nation will take," said Life and Liberty PAC spokesman Rick Shaftan. "And here there are three distinct choices: a Barack Obama liberal, a left-wing so-called Republican who agrees with Obama on virtually everything, or a solid conservative ready to stand tall for taxpayers and fight for what we believe in. Life and Liberty PAC is committed to standing with those who stand up against the liberal Status Quo," Shaftan added.
