Rep. Democrat of the United States Stephanie Murphy is the target of a new Republican attack ad released Thursday accusing it of pushing federal spending out of control and causing inflation.
The 30-second ad, “Stephanie Murphy: Helped Cause Inflation… And the Worst Is Yet to Come,” is broadcast on social media and other digital platforms by the Congressional Leadership Fund, a Super PAC aligned with Republican leadership from the room.
The Political Action Committee said it was spending “in the middle of five digits” to place three ads, targeting Murphy and two other members of the Democratic House nationwide.
“Stephanie Murphy voted to print trillions of dollars in unnecessary far-left spending, and now Floridians are suffering the consequences: soaring inflation and higher prices on everything from gasoline to groceries.” , said the fund’s communications director. Calvin moore said in a written statement. “Floridians are finding it harder than ever to make ends meet and Stephanie Murphy’s reckless spending is to blame. “
Murphy’s ad ties Winter Park Democrat to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in a few digitally combined images that run before and after images depicting inflation, money and struggling taxpayers.
As these scenes unfold, a narrator offers an economic discussion that Pelosi and Murphy spend billions of dollars, allowing people to raise money without working and causing inflation, if not worse.
The announcement does not specify any particular invoice. But he appears to be lashing out at Murphy for his support for the president Joe bidenis $ 1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, which included an extension of unemployment benefits and provided direct relief checks of $ 1,400 to most Americans.
Congress approved the American rescue plan almost entirely along partisan lines in March, although the package attracted high public approval ratings in many polls.
The Congressional Leadership Fund ad attributes the spending to Pelosi and calls him the Democrats’ “socialist spending plan”.
Murphy is seeking a fourth term representing the 7th Congressional District of Florida, which currently includes Seminole County and parts of northern, central and eastern Orange County. The district is likely to be significantly redesigned in the redistribution that the Republican-controlled Florida legislature will design to respond to distributional changes from the 2020 census.
A host of Republicans have asked for a chance to hire him, including a conservative TV commentator Cory mills, Erika Benfield, and State Rep. Antoine Sabatini.
“Inflation is no accident,” begins a narrator in the new ad. “Pelosi’s socialist-style spending plan helped provoke it. Stephanie Murphy helped get it through, printing trillions that we don’t have, paying people not to work. Now the chickens have come home to roost, and they’re twice as expensive. Everything is like a brand new tax. Not enough workers to do things, higher prices for what’s left. Economists say the worst is yet to come.
“Stéphanie Murphy, I offer you a price,” concludes the narrator.
