America Speaks PAC to spend up to $75,000 on anti-Ryan ads before primary


The America Speaks PAC expects to spend between $60,000 and $75,000 on ads opposing House Speaker Paul Ryan leading up to the Aug. 9 primary.

The PAC’s treasurer, Bill Cooley, said two TV ads that ran earlier this month cost a little more than $10,000 each. The first 30-second ad, which ran through July 4 in the 1st CD, says Ryan, R-Janesville, “won’t even slow down Muslim immigration and enables Obama’s agenda every chance he gets.” The spot then calls challenger Paul Nehlen the “conservative change we need now.”

The second 30-second TV spot, which Cooley said ran during the Republican National Convention last week, hits Ryan for opposing “a temporary Muslim ban and a border wall, how Ryan’s always supported illegal alien amnesty and has given Obama everything he wanted.”

A narrator in the ad, which also ran in the 1st CD, says, “Now it gets even worse. When cops are being shot down in the streets, Ryan talks about healing instead of stopping the Obama policies causing these murders.”

The ad closes calling for Nehlen for Congress, “For the people, not the DC crowd.”

Cooley said America Speaks also spent about $7,000 on a radio spot earlier this month. In that 60-second ad, a narrator again hits Ryan for supporting “open borders and illegal alien amnesty, but not Trump’s border wall or his temporary ban on Muslims.”

The narrator also calls out Ryan for supporting “bad trade deals, like the Trans-Pacific Partnership that will destroy even more Wisconsin jobs.”

“Now Ryan’s announced he won’t support Donald Trump,” the narrator says. “Just whose side is Ryan on? Paul Ryan’s been in Congress nearly 20 years, and he’s lost touch. Ryan needs a wake-up call.”

The narrator then talks about Nehlen as a “conservative businessman who will stop bad trade deals, build the wall, fight amnesty and cut spending now.” It closes with the slogan: “Paul Nehlen for Congress. He’s on our side.”

Cooley said there are no America Speaks ads running now, but the PAC is developing more.

Filings so far with the FEC show the PAC spent $24,987 since late May on radio and TV opposing Ryan.
