GOP-aligned group urges Democrats to support cutting energy costs
American Action Network (AAN), a nonprofit advocacy group closely tied to the Republican leadership of the House, has launched the first steps of an advocacy campaign on a major issue to urge members of Congress to support the reduction energy costs.
The group’s effort includes $1.5 million in broadcast, cable and digital advertising. He will target 12 different members of Congress, urging them to support HR 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act.
Legislation in the House pushed by Republicans is meant to help lower energy costs by cutting red tape to boost US energy production and promote competitiveness with China, as Republicans want to push back against the anti- -energy of President Joe Biden and adopt a more rigid position vis-à-vis China.
“Americans cannot afford to continue footing the bill for the left’s costly war on energy,” said AAN President Dan Conston. “Congress must seize the opportunity now to pass generational legislation that will reduce costs for American families, streamline critical construction projects and strengthen our national security.”
AAN’s $1.5 million for broadcast, cable and digital advertising is set to air during the “March Madness” basketball tournament and on local news stations. The ads will cover 12 members – mostly freshman Democrats – as the group airs additional ads in conservative districts across the country as part of the national campaign to win support for the legislation.
Districts AAN will reach with digital and TV advertising include those of Reps. Yadira Caraveo (D-CO), Matt Cartwright (D-PA), Marie Glusenkamp Perez (D-WA), Dan Kildee (D-MI), Wiley Nickel (D-NC), Emilia Sykes (D-OH) and Gabe Vasquez (D-NM). Districts that will only be impacted by digital include those of Representatives Mary Peltola (D-AK), Jared Golden (D-ME), Susan Wild (D-PA), Greg Landsman (D-OH) and Mary Kaptur (D -OH).
