DCCC Continues Offensive on Jonathan “Payday” Paton With New TV Ad “Friends”

 The DCCC released its third Independent Expenditure ad revealing even more about Republican congressional candidate Jonathan “Payday” Paton’s record of supporting special interests over Arizona’s middle class. Payday Paton lobbied for the predatory payday lending industry and supported legislation allowing them to charge astronomical interest rates in the state legislature. But payday lenders aren’t the only special interests backing Payday Paton. He has taken thousands from Wall Street and insurance companies, while endorsing policies that would benefit them like handing over seniors’ retirement to the volatile stock market and turning Medicare into a voucher program.
