On Tuesday, the Housley for Senate campaign released a new advertisement entitled “Showing Up”. The ad is the campaign’s fifth and final broadcast spot of the election cycle.
“Minnesotans can count on me to show up. Whether it’s protecting our seniors, securing our border, or ensuring coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, I will always have the backs of those I represent,” said Karin Housley, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Minnesota. “Tina Smith may have gone to Washington, but she still hasn’t shown up for us. Her legacy of partisan obstruction and political games comes at the expense of Minnesotans. She was never elected – and when it comes down to it, Tina Smith doesn’t show up.”
The ad draws attention to Tina Smith’s absence from the October 21 KSTP-TV candidate debate, which was the only statewide televised debate of the campaign and of which Tina Smith was the only candidate to refuse to participate. The ad also draws a contrast between Tina Smith’s failure to lead on important issues, such as standing up for victims of abuse and protecting the elderly, with Karin Housley’s relentless advocacy for elder care, a secure border, and coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
Housley continued: “I’ll be a new voice for Minnesota in the United States Senate – and I’ll always show up.”
