Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach Releases Ad Targeting Newly-Elected Members of Congress
(SAN FRANCISCO, November 20, 2018)—Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach will begin airing a new national television ad today targeting the newly-elected members of the U.S. House of Representatives and calls on them to hold Donald Trump accountable after they are confirmed in January. Watch the ad here.
“Americans rose up this November and rejected Donald Trump. More unhinged by that than ever, this President declared war on the rule of law,” says Steyer in the ad. “But you gave Democrats the power to hold him in check. A majority vote in the House can impeach him and expose his lawless behavior for all to see. They just need the will.”
The 30-second ad — the first by any organization targeting all the new House members since the election — also launches the campaign’s eight-point plan to guide it through the next two years, including mobilizing its 6.3 million supporters behind giving Congress the courage to hold Donald Trump accountable for his lawlessness.
Need to Impeach Lead Strategist Kevin Mack added: “The American people sent a loud and clear message to Washington on Election Day: ‘Trump has to go.’ We’ve had enough of his lawlessness and disregard for the rule of law. It’s now Congress’ turn to do what they were elected to do and hold him accountable. Our campaign won’t stop putting pressure on them until they do. We’re not going away.”
The ad concludes with Steyer saying: “Please join over 6 million Americans and together we can give Congress the courage to act. Then, we can begin building a more just and prosperous future.”
Steyer launched Need to Impeach on October 20, 2017 with TV and social networking ads. More than 6.3 million people across the country have since signed on to support the campaign, creating one of the fastest growing political groups that political strategists consider one of the most powerful groups in Democratic politics.
