Downer for Congress Launches First TV Ad “Fight Back”
SOUTH LOUISIANA – Hunt Downer recently launched his first TV ad, “Fight Back,” in his campaign for South Louisiana’s open 3rd Congressional District seat.
Downer, a Republican, has been an outspoken critic of President Obama’s moratorium and the liberal leadership in Washington. “Instead of picking up a pen to issue another moratorium, the President should have picked up a pair of scissors to cut the red tape that is holding America’s economy back.
The President’s second moratorium, based on politics and not science, is simply wrong. He is killing Louisiana’s economy, hurting our national security, and making America more dependent on foreign oil from dictators and tyrants. At a time when each of the President’s economic ‘recovery’ initiatives has failed to live up to his promises, the President should be fighting to protect every American job he can. Instead, he reinvented his job killing moratorium that has already been proven to be based on politics and not public safety.”
Downer recently announced a blistering fundraising pace of nearly $8,000 a day since he entered the race in late May. Downer is a retired Major General of the Army and former Speaker of the Louisiana House of Representatives.
