Listen to the ad here, and below read the transcript…
It must be embarrassing for Tom MacArthur.
He just set a new record for the lowest number of contributions given to any candidate for congress this year:
In fact he has fewer donors than staff members.
Less support than any candidate for congress in America.
And his one donor?
Well, he’s a banker who doesn’t live in the district.
It must be embarrassing for Tom MacArthur
You know Tom MacArthur’s liberal record:
Higher property taxes,
Taxpayer-funded low income housing projects,
Social-engineering, progressive taxation.
No wonder he hasn’t a single contribution from our district.
The Beatles sang, “Can’t Buy Me Love.”
Liberal Tom MacArthur is writing his own song, “Can’t Buy Me A Congressional District.”
I’m Steve Lonegan and I approve this message.
