Senator "No Earmarks Ever" Tester Targeted in Media Buy

A group called Crossroads GPS announced on Tuesday that they plan to spend 20 million dollars on news spots targeting 5 U.S. Senators including our very own Senator Jon “No Earmarks Ever” Tester as pressure prior to the upcoming debt-cutting votes that will be before congress. The Crossroads GPS website says this about the media buy;
New TV spots begin running today through August 6 on network television stations in Florida, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska and Ohio, and will be complemented by targeted online advertising in those states.

The spots focus on U.S. Senators Bill Nelson of Florida, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Sherrod Brown of Ohio. All feature local constituents of the senators, urging solutions to the debt limit debate that will cut spending and not raise taxes or create new taxes. The ads promote the website www.nomoreblankchecks.com which provides viewers with online tools to write their senators and representative on the issue.
We have let our government run amuck for far too long. It is time to work towards matching our expenditure to our income just like we have to do in our local businesses here in Havre, Montana.  Regardless if you think it is Bushes fault, Obama’s fault or anyone else’s fault it is time to man-up and correct the problem.
If you haven’t already seen the ad it is posted below


  1. I thought Jon would be a decent Senator but he hardly had his suitcase unpacked and I began reading stories of him being in bed with Harry Reed and Nancy Pelosi and he votes for every single spending bill Obama sends his way.

    We can't afford 6 more years of this big spender

  2. Bye Bye Jon

    Your headed back to your weed infested farm and it can't be soon enough for me
