Today, the Agenda Project Action Fund -- known for hard-hitting ads such as "Romney Girl," "Republican Cuts Kill," and "Granny Off the Cliff" -- launched a new campaign with American Family Voices targeting Governor Scott Walker's ties to the Koch brothers. The campaign includes ad buys in Iowa and DC.
"Puppet for President" is the first in a series planned against Walker which will focus on his relationship with the billionaire Koch brothers. The series will paint Walker as a bought and paid for PUPPET of the GOP mega-donors.
"Americans are fed up with the influence of money has on our political leaders and they will vote accordingly," said Agenda Project President Erica Payne. "Our goal is to highlight the most egregious offenders and force them to pay a political price. The relationship between the Kochs and Governor Walker is an embarrassment to our democracy."
AP Action Fund partnered with American Family Voices for both the ad and an anti-Walker rally to be held in Wisconsin next to the location where Walker will be making his presidential campaign announcement. Hundreds of rally goers will sport 'Puppet for President' stickers to amplify the ad campaign's message.
"Walker's record shows that he is the ultimate puppet for the priorities of the Koch brothers: eviscerating protections for the environment, and eviscerating the power of working people to negotiate for better wages and working conditions," said American Family Voices President Mike Lux. "This was a natural fit for AFV because we stand on the side of working people and against big-money special interests."
