NRCC Launches New TV Ad Against Earl Pomeroy

After 17 Years in Washington, Pomeroy’s Political Career is On Life Support


Washington- Following the White House Healthcare Summit, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is launching a 30 second TV ad, which will begin airing today, reminding North Dakota families about Earl Pomeroy’s vote for President Obama’s trillion dollar government takeover of healthcare. Given Pomeroy’s record of rubber-stamping Nancy Pelosi’s reckless agenda 97 percent of time, and the fact that only 28 percent of his constituents supported his party’s job-killing healthcare bill, the North Dakota Democrat’s political career is now on life support. The ad, titled “Heartbeat,” encourages North Dakotans to sign an online petition against the latest attempt to ram a healthcare bill through Congress by texting “Pomeroy” to 777218.

Immediately following the White House Healthcare Summit, Democrats are wasting no time by plotting to ram their partisan healthcare bill through Congress:


“After a brief period of consultation following the White House health reform summit, congressional Democrats plan to begin making the case next week for a massive, Democrats-only health care plan, party strategists told POLITICO.”


“Democrats plan to begin rhetorical, and perhaps legislative, steps toward the Democrats-only, or reconciliation, process early next week, the strategists said.” (Mike Allen, “Exclusive: What happens next in health care,” Politico, 2/25/2010)


“After supporting an agenda of government takeovers, higher taxes, and fewer jobs, Earl Pomeroy’s political career is on life support” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “Democrats are wasting no time in plotting to ram their partisan healthcare bill through Congress, and they’re looking at Pomeroy to help scrape together another razor-thin majority. After nearly two decades of North Dakotans suffering under Pomeroy’s big-government ways, Earl Pomeroy has a choice – will he finally stand up for North Dakota families and vote against the Democrats’ reckless healthcare takeover or will he cave to his radical Washington party bosses again and allow his political career to perish?”


Pomeroy already backed Obama’s healthcare takeover last November and now, after the White House Healthcare Summit, the President is counting on his vote again. Earl Pomeroy’s political career is in critical condition and North Dakotans are suffering. If he casts one more vote in support of Obama’s government healthcare takeover and against the best interests North Dakota families – he might as well be pulling the plug on his own political career.
