The American Action Network (AAN) released a new ad today targeting Congressman Rick Nolan, encouraging him to “fight the Obama Administration’s proposed new cuts to Medicare Advantage (MA).” The AAN is headed by former U.S. Senator Norm Coleman. AAN said in a statement:
“President Obama promised he wouldn’t cut Medicare, but that is exactly what he’s doing, again,” said AAN Communications Director Dan Conston. “The Medicare Advantage cuts could be the trifecta of horrors for seniors: lose your doctor, pay more, and get fewer benefits. Token support is not enough. It’s time they actually stand up and fight to stop President Obama from gutting Medicare Advantage.”
According to a press release, AAN will spend $50,000 in cable TV in the Duluth-Superior area targeting Nolan and AAN will spend a total of $1 million targeting nine Democrats across the country. Below is the ad featuring Nolan.
AAN spent resources targeting Nolan in 2012. According to MinnPost:
American Action Network spent heavily against Nolan during his 2012 challenge against then-Rep. Chip Cravaack. Republicans think Nolan, who won that race by 9 points, is vulnerable this cycle, and conservative groups have already poured money into this race: Americans For Prosperity spent $225,000 on TV ads against Nolan last December.
