AFP Action Launches Million Dollar Ad Campaign Showing Why Eric Hovde is the Leader America Needs

Madison, WI – Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) launched a new $1 million campaign across the Badger State showing why Eric Hovde is the candidate America needs to lead our country back in the right direction.

This campaign includes digital, online, and connected TV ads streaming statewide showing why Eric Hovde is the right candidate to solve the problems Washington’s career politicians have caused by lowering costs, growing jobs, and securing our borders to keep Americans safe. 

AFP Action announced its endorsement of Eric Hovde in February 2024. In early April, AFP Action launched its first ad campaign, a six-figure campaign supporting Hovde. In addition, our grassroots activists have been knocking doors since early April as part of AFP Action’s largest election engagement cycle to date.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Megan Novak released the following statement:

“Tammy Baldwin’s political record speaks for itself–nearly 40 years as a Washington insider who has voted in agreement with President Biden’s disastrous agenda 95% of the time. She’s nothing more than a rubber-stamp Democrat responsible for record high inflation, skyrocketing energy costs, and a crisis at our border. If she could have made a difference, she would have done it by now.  

“Eric Hovde is unquestionably the right choice this election, and the reasons are abundantly clear. With his background as a successful businessman and entrepreneur, he possesses the real-world experience and problem solving skills necessary to navigate our broken political system and fix what career politicians like Tammy Baldwin have broken. Hovde will fight for common sense solutions that lower costs, fight inflation, and drive down our national debt. He’ll work to get government out of the way and stand up for better policies that make life better for all Americans.”

Americans for Prosperity Action Endorses Eric Hovde for U.S. Senate

MADISON, WI – Today, Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) announced support for Eric Hovde’s bid for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Democrat Tammy Baldwin.

AFP Action is getting involved earlier than ever before in federal and state primaries to elect better candidates who are strong advocates for policies that will improve the lives of all Americans.

Megan Novak, AFP Action Senior Advisor, issued the following statement: 

“AFP Action is excited to back Eric Hovde, a candidate who will fight for economic freedom and policies that put our nation back on a path toward prosperity. As Americans struggle to make ends meet under Biden’s failing economy, career politicians like Tammy Baldwin and her support for runaway spending and inflationary policies are to blame. The economy is at the front of mind for voters this year and Eric Hovde is the leader Wisconsinites are looking for. One that puts Americans first, unleashes energy production, and fights for a more competitive economy that ensures opportunity for all.

“Wisconsinites cannot afford the Biden-Baldwin partnership any longer. That is why AFP Action is ready to put its full weight of grassroots capabilities behind Hovde, a candidate who can help lead our country forward and win.”

Background:

AFP Action has acquired the data from AFP conversations with more than 8 million people to bring new voters into the primary process and ensure we elect better candidates. Those insights will direct the activities of the largest grassroots operation in the country that are ready to knock on doors to bring voters to the polls and win support for Eric Hovde. AFP Action will also invest in extensive mail, digital, and connected-television campaigns to lay the foundation for grassroots advocates or reinforce conversations that have already taken place. In 2022, AFP and AFP Action engaged in 457 races, knocking on more than 7 million doors, delivering over 100 million pieces of mail, and reaching millions more voters through phone and email.

AFP Action Statement on New Hampshire Primary Results

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action Senior Advisor Emily Seidel made the following statement after tonight’s New Hampshire primary results: 

“Tonight’s results in New Hampshire show that Nikki Haley is closing the gap and that she is the clear alternative for voters who are ready to close the book on the toxic Biden-Trump political era. This is still an uphill battle. Now all eyes turn to South Carolina, where she has a steeper road ahead.  

“For the past several months, we’ve been engaged in races for the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and presidential levels to prevent a scenario where one party progressive rule comes to Washington, D.C. at a time when our country can least afford it. If Republicans nominate Donald Trump, we risk a repeat of the past three elections and the very real threat of full progressive control increases dramatically. This is why Joe Biden and the Democrats want him to be the nominee. The stakes for our country simply couldn’t be higher. 

“Our teams will continue talking to South Carolina voters in support of Nikki Haley. We are laser focused on electing the candidates who can be the firewall preventing one party progressive rule of the federal government. We have three ways to win: the Senate, the House, and the presidential primary. Through our multi-pronged effort we are prepared to get this done.   

“I’m proud of our activists’ ongoing efforts. Despite challenging conditions, their support shows that AFP Action consistently takes principled and tough action when our country needs it most.”

Nikki Haley Emerges from Iowa with the Momentum

 Haley Is the Only Candidate Standing Between Americans and Another Four Years of Biden

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action Senior Advisor Emily Seidel made the following statement after tonight’s Iowa caucus results:

“Nikki Haley did exactly what she needed to in Iowa and is in a strong position heading to New Hampshire where it’s a two-person race and she is within striking distance of Trump. Ron DeSantis poured everything he could into Iowa because it was his only shot at changing the dynamics of the race, but the reality is that he’s polling in single digits in New Hampshire and South Carolina with no path forward. We’ve said all along that this is a marathon, not a sprint and Nikki Haley is surging in New Hampshire, where history has shown eventual nominees gain critical momentum into South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states.

“Poll after poll shows that Nikki Haley would crush Joe Biden in a general election, winning some battleground states by double digits and delivering a landslide Republican election that would sweep candidates at every level into office. She is not only able to win, she’s also able to write a new chapter for America and turn the page on the failed policies of the Biden Administration.

“Republicans cannot afford to put control of Washington at risk by nominating Donald Trump – who is by far the weakest candidate against Joe Biden. At a time when millions of Americans are struggling, Nikki Haley is the only candidate who can defeat Biden, unify the nation, and help ensure a brighter future for our country.”

AFP Action Senior Advisor Tyler Raygor said the following:

“Tonight was a strong showing for Haley, and heading into New Hampshire and South Carolina she’s exactly where she needs to be to make this a true two-person race.

“In the past few months, we have spoken with hundreds of thousands of Iowans, 50,000 of whom met our activists on their doorsteps in just the past week, despite the storms.

“But while all eyes have been on Iowa, AFP Action has been speaking to voters throughout the early and Super Tuesday states and reached more than one million voters. This is a marathon and not a sprint – AFP Action is uniquely positioned to continue amplifying Haley’s positive message of a new chapter in American politics.”

AFP Action is helping propel Nikki Haley forward with an unmatched on-the-ground effort and layered mail and digital strategy. In just seven short weeks since endorsing Haley for President, AFP Action has reached out to more than 1 million voters and is putting to use the knowledge acquired from interviews with more than 6 million aligned primary voters through the summer and fall of 2023 to build support for Nikki Haley. One week ago, AFP Action launched a $27 million mail, digital, and grassroots campaign in the early states titled “Strongest” that shows why Nikki Haley is without question the strongest candidate Republicans could run against Joe Biden in November.

AFP Action has hundreds of activists and volunteers out in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Super Tuesday states, and beyond. The energy and enthusiasm AFP Action is hearing at the doors has translated into clear momentum for Haley in the polls. In New Hampshire, AFP Action’s polling shows that Haley has closed a 14-point gap and is now statistically tied with Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup. The Wall Street Journal’s latest polling shows that Haley beats Biden by 17 points in a general election matchup.

Nikki Haley Again Shows Voters Why She’ll Crush Biden in 2024

 No Stronger Choice than Haley if Republicans Want to Win Back Washington

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action Senior Advisor Emily Seidel made the following statement after tonight’s Republican presidential debate:

“Nikki Haley showed voters tonight why she is hands down the strongest candidate Republicans could put up against Joe Biden in November. She crushes Biden by double digits in a head-to-head matchup and beats him in the critical swing states that Trump lost. Nikki is a conservative fighter with a bold vision to turn our country around. She is the only candidate in the race who would boost Republicans up and down the ballot, and deliver an election that sweeps strong leaders into the House and Senate to address our country’s biggest challenges. 

“Republicans cannot afford to gamble with our country’s future and risk another four years of Biden. If Republicans want to take back the White House, get our country back on the path to prosperity, and win again, there is no stronger choice than Nikki Haley.”

Since endorsing Haley for President, AFP Action has reached out to more than 750,000 voters and is putting to use the knowledge acquired from interviews with more than 6 million Republican primary voters through the summer and fall of 2023 to build support for Nikki Haley.

“Nikki Haley is by far the strongest candidate Republicans could run against Joe Biden, and no one else is even close.

With the criminal trials and the negative baggage of Donald Trump, our country can’t risk four more years of Joe Biden.

Nikki Haley: A Proven Leader Who Will Deliver on Her Promises and Restore the American Dream

AFP Action announces new multimillion dollar ad buy “We Must Do Better” 

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action announced today in an organization-wide memo that it is proud to be throwing the full weight and scope of its grassroots operation behind Nikki Haley to help her become the next President of the United States. That effort will begin with a multimillion dollar ad campaign launching this week in all early and several Super Tuesday states calling on Americans to unite behind Haley’s positive vision to turn the page on today’s broken politics and move our country forward.   

The ad, titled “We Must Do Better,” highlights the serious nature of America’s challenges and argues in order to fix what’s broken the country must look to new leadership.

When we announced our decision to engage in our first ever Republican presidential primary, we made it clear that we’d be looking for a candidate who can turn the page on our political dysfunction – and win. It’s clear that candidate is Nikki Haley. We can’t keep looking to the politicians of the past to fix the problems of today. Nikki Haley represents a new generation of leadership and offers a bold, positive vision for our future. AFP Action is proud to be endorsing her and we will be doing everything we can to help make her the next President of the United States.” 

To date this year, Americans for Prosperity has communicated with more than 6 million potential Republican primary voters in key early states to understand what issues matter most to them and what they are looking for in candidates up and down the ballot. AFP Action has acquired this data and will begin putting it to use to support its endorsed candidates.
