Crossroads GPS Launches New TV Ads on Economy, Spending in Five Senate States

New ads start with major broadcast buys in Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, and Virginia.

 WASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today released a new round of TV ads focused on the economy, jobs, wasteful stimulus spending and government regulations.  One of the ads, “Foundation,” which will run in Massachusetts, references the “Occupy Wall Street” movement as the wrong response to the country’s economic morass.

The new buys will run for two weeks and total $1.8 million across the five states.  Ads begin running today in Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, and Virginia, and will start tomorrow in Nebraska.

  •   The Montana ad, “Dirt,” can be viewed here.
  •   The Virginia ad, “Applause,” can be viewed here.

“The liberal-run Senate keeps pushing tax increases and more wasteful spending instead of dealing seriously with the economic and financial problems our country faces,” said Crossroads GPS President Steven Law.  “These ads are designed to alert citizens to the big-government views of these politicians and turn up the heat for legislative action that helps America’s Job Creators instead of Washington bureaucrats.”

This latest Crossroads GPS issue initiative comes one day after the group announced $2.6 million in new advertising in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, opposing President Barack Obama’s proposed tax increases on job creators, small businesses, school and road repair funds and home mortgages. The buys behind the current two-week wave of advertising totals $4.4 million.

Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future.
