|Idaho Falls, ID – Today Bryan Smith’s campaign released its first television ad “Earmarks.” The significant ad buy is running in the Twin Falls and Idaho Falls media markets.
At a time when our nation’s debt is over $17 trillion dollars, our country cannot afford any more wasteful earmark spending. Mike Simpson says he has “always been a supporter of earmarks” and that is clear from his liberal voting record.
“While the Simpson campaign continues to throw mud instead of running on the congressman’s record, the Smith campaign will set the record straight on Simpson’s liberal voting record. It is clear that Congressman Simpson’s rhetoric does not match his record. Simpson tries to claim he is a fiscal conservative but he cannot run from his liberal voting record anymore. When you vote for the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’, a lobster institute in Maine and a park in Nancy Pelosi’s district, you cannot make such conservative claims,” said Bryan Smith campaign manager, Carrie Brown.

“Listen to what liberal Mike Simpson said a few days ago.”
“Let me tell you about earmarks. I’ve always been a supporter of earmarks. “
“Yeah Mike – we know. You have supported billions in wasteful spending like the ‘Bridge of Nowhere.’
Fortunately, Republicans have a choice this year, conservative Bryan Smith.
Bryan Smith is a husband, father and small business owner.
He knows Republicans need to fight Obama’s liberal policies.”
“I am Bryan Smith and I approve this message.”
What They Are Saying
Elaina Johnson, National Review: “The primary race in Idaho’s 2nd congressional district, which pits incumbent representative Mike Simpson against attorney Bryan Smith, is one of the many this cycle attracting an infusion of outside money. It’s one of the few, though, that fits into the traditional narrative about a tea-party candidate looking to upend the establishment. The primary will test the enduring muscle of anti-establishment forces and their long-term ability to unseat Republicans who don’t pass their ideological purity tests…The outcome of the primary — the district is a safe one for Republicans — will resonate beyond Idaho.” Click here to view article.
