Crossroads GPS launched a nationwide issue advocacy ad Wednesday on cable TV that seeks to publicize the relationships between government employee unions and Democratic elected officials. The $750,000 ad buy runs for one week on CNBC, CNN and Fox News.
The ad features speeches given by Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Mass.) in February, National Education Association General Counsel Bob Chanin in 2009 and President Barack Obama in 2007.
ďThe debate weíre seeing in Wisconsin and around the country is not just about public employees or unions ó itís about a system where politicians and government unions have scratched each otherís backs at the expense of unsuspecting taxpayers,Ē Crossroads GPS President Steven Law said.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
