In the age of Trump, all politics are
Chuck Todd’s opening words on Meet the Press, 10/15/18:
“Tip O’Neill famously said, ‘All politics is local.’ He was right then. Boy, is he wrong now. In the age of Trump, all politics is national.”
Our powerful spots can be run in any state, and make a strong case to swing voters that Democrats provide smarter, better government. Included below is a preview of one of our new campaigns for 2020.
Congress Majority’s mission is to bring about and keep a Democratic majority in both Houses of Congress.
We’re a new SuperPAC with a highly innovative approach. While other PACs support individual candidates and attack their opponents, we promote Democrats as a whole, and attack Republicans on the big issues only. Our 2018 spots effectively undermine Republican ideology as oversimplified and flawed. A new ad campaign planned for 2020 will intercut clips from interviews with Democrat and Republican voters, compare their attitudes on national issues, and close by inviting Repuplicans to cross over to the Democratic side. The tag: “Which one are you? Join the Democrats, for smarter, better goverment. Vote Democrat.”
We also have other ad campaigns on the drawing board to be developed by a new stragegist we are searching for now. To build our team further, we will also hire a seasoned Democtatic fundraiser and large social media advertising firm like 270 Strategies.
We’re Party-centric, but most political campaigns are candidate-centric, focused on local races, candidates’ personalities and opponents’ flaws. We believe the public is tired of the same old candidate-centered ads they are bombarded with every election season.
During the 2018 mid-term election, Donald Trump’s PACs, Future45 and Donald Trump for President, had the vision to utilize this concept for their side. They ran ads urging voters to “Vote Republican.” Since 2016, our founder has been urging Democratic PACs to incorporate this concept, and in frustration he finally decided to start this SuperPAC.
Congress Majority is now searching for a top Democratic strategist to partner with, help raise millions and build our org into a major Democratic PAC to impact the 2020 election. In the age of Trump, we need to promote all Democrats, and attack Republicans as a group.
Our social media and broadcast ads for the 2018 mid-term election made a strong case to swing voters that Democrats provide smarter, more pragmatic government. They point out that Republican policy is based on an oversimplified ideology that’s dangerous to our nation. Most of our ads end with the tag, “Vote Democrat, and this time, vote.“
In 2020 Congress Majority PAC will again focus our ad buys in cities and States with close Congressional races. All our spots are timed for TV advertising, and work well in social media. We’ll make the needed difference in bringing about and keeping a Democratic majority in both Houses. Following the mid-term election, join us as we devote ourselves to the election of 2020.
As you watch Congress Majority’s four minute reel of ads, imagine how an undecided voter will react to them. If you feel they will change hearts and minds, make a generous contribution to our PAC, however large or small. You’ll be helping to get our ads viewed by more voters where it counts — in swing states and races.
The November 6 mid-term is the most important election in generations. Together we can turn Congress blue!
