The Committee to Defend the President will launch a new ad campaign, hoping to inspire supporters of President Donald Trump to vote for Republicans during the midterm elections in November.
With their new online ad campaign, the Committee to Defend the President hopes they can help Republicans find the same fire to get to the polls as has been seen on the left — and they’re using the #Resistance as fuel for their conservative fire.
The two ads, obtained exclusively by IJR, show a side-by-side comparison of a resistance member and an everyday American heading to the polls in November.
The committee didn’t pull any punches in their depiction of the anti-Trump resistance. The activists lay in bed all morning, hit a bong, hop on their electric scooters, and go to vote against Republicans.
“The Antifa-left of the Democratic Party has taken over the Democratic Party,” Committee to Defend the President Chairman Ted Harvey told IJR.
Harvey explained that the protests around the country highlight a shift in American politics that is antithetical to the policies put forward by President Trump and Republicans.
“I think what you’re seeing around the country, whether it’s in Portland or Washington D.C., is that the resistance Antifa are very aggressive and very mobilized. They are doing everything they can to try to mobilize their supporters and change the outcome of the election.”
Harvey noted that the treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh by some on the left has done a lot to hype conservative voters for election day.
“[The Democrats] literally embarrassed themselves in front of the whole world,” Harvey said, adding that he is very optimistic about the Republican odds in 2018.
The committee has already spent nearly $1 million on the 2018 midterms and they plan to target this online campaign at red states with close races, such as the Senate race in Tennesse between Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Phil Bredesen (D-Tenn.).
Harvey is optimistic that this campaign will help turn out voters who supported Trump in 2016 but don’t typically vote in midterm elections.
“The radicle left has been throwing a national temper tantrum,” explained Harvey. “We’re going to mobilize the Republican Trump supporter to go vote.”
