NRCC Hits Republican Congressman and Candidate in New Ad
In a new television ad released today by the NRCC for the LA-06 Special Election, National Republicans use the same cookie-cutter attacks they normally use. However, the NRCC failed to do its homework or they would have known that Republican Congressman Rodney Alexander (LA-05) and Republican Candidate Steve Scalise (LA-01) voted for many of the bills mentioned in the ad.
“Are Republicans planning to run ads throughout
Of the four votes cited in the NRCC’s new ad in LA-06, Congressman Alexander voted for all of them and Republican candidate Steve Scalise voted for two of them:
- Congressman Rodney Alexander voted for HB 124 (3/30/00), HB 299 (6/7/00), HB 140 (6/7/00), and HB 169 (6/12/02).
- State Representative Steve Scalise voted for HB 140 (6/7/00), and HB 169 (6/12/02).
