Americans for Prosperity continues Florida focus with ads against Joe Garcia, Alan Grayson



Americans for Prosperity is spending a combined $400,000 for new ads against Reps. Joe Garcia, D-Miami, and Alan Grayson, D-Orlando. The bulk is being spend on the ad against Garcia, which plays on the "Lie of the Year."

Earlier this week, AFP began a Obamacare focused ad ($160,000 spent) supporting Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City.

“These ads are part of a five-year, all-out effort by Americans for Prosperity to defeat ObamaCare," said Florida State Director Slade O’Brien. "From grassroots rallies and educational events, to letters to the editor, to multimedia campaigns, AFP activists have taken every available avenue to stand against ObamaCare. Floridians are losing access to trusted doctors and facing higher premiums and deductibles, while the Congressional Budget Office says the economy will lose valuable productivity worth millions of jobs.  It’s time for both these lawmakers to realize the damage ObamaCare is causing and stand with us against the law.”
