Americans for Prosperity Action—NC Launches Digital Ads Contrasting NC U.S. Senate Candidates

Ad says Ted Budd will “put NC families over Washington politics.”

Americans for Prosperity Action-North Carolina launched a digital video ad that contrasts North Carolina’s U.S. Senate candidates on various issues that the organization believes are critical to improving the quality of life for North Carolina families. The ad began running on September 15.

The organization, which endorsed Ted Budd, said in the ad that he would “stand up to the career politicians driving up costs.”

The ad says Budd’s opponent, Cheri Beasley, “put Washington politics over North Carolina families.”

AFP Action-NC has been engaging voters in support of Ted Budd through door knocking, digital ads, and traditional mail. To date, the organization has mailed more than 820,000 pieces of mail in support of Ted Budd’s campaign.

“North Carolinians have been crushed by inflation and skyrocketing prices at the grocery stores and gas pumps,” said AFP Action-NC Senior Advisor Tyler Voigt. “Rising prices are fueled by out-of-control spending. That’s why we’re supporting Ted Budd for Senate. Budd will be a check on the massive spending and misguided policies that are making everyday life difficult for people here in North Carolina.” This new contrast video as well as step-up door knocking and telephone calling is part of AFP Action-NC’s final push during the remaining weeks of the campaign to educate voters about the candidates and to turn them out in support of Ted Budd on Election Day.
