​Colonel Applegate’s New Ad: Say No to Trump and Issa

Ad Connects Issa with “Trump Tapes”

Today the Applegate for Congress campaign released its third television ad, “Access,” this time criticizing Congressman Darrell Issa for taking an official role on Donald Trump’s campaign on the same day disgusting tapes were released in which Trump brags about sexual assault.


Last Friday, Trump appointed Issa to his National Security Advisory Council, despite the fact Issa has lied about his military record. Last week a poll also showed Colonel Applegate taking the lead for the first time in this competitive district.

“The videos leaked last week showed us once again that Trump is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief, but Darrell Issa continues to support him and even joined his campaign. That’s the definition of putting politics ahead of country and voters deserve to know,” said Robert Dempsey, Applegate’s campaign manager. 

This is the third ad released by the Applegate campaign. The first, “Lined Pockets” links Issa to his presidential pick Donald Trump and questions how Issa became over $200 million richer in Congress. Issa responded with a threatening letter in an attempt to distract from the issues. Likewise, Issa gave a weak knee-jerk response to Applegate’s second ad “Everything Changed,” which criticized Issa for voting against the 9/11 first responder bill and saying he had done enough for what he called “simply" a plane crash.

“Access” will air on broadcast and cable in the 49th Congressional District.
