Groups Responds To Flood Of Money From McConnell And His Allies

As Mitch McConnell and his allies are already pouring money into the Kentucky senate race, Senate Majority PAC and Patriot Majority USA launched the 30 Years Is Too Long Campaign.

The 30 Years Is Too Long Campaign will be a continuous effort through the Election and use paid television and radio media, digital advertisements, mail, telephones, email, social media, research and a web presences to show Kentuckians that after McConnell’s 30 years in Washington, it is time to switch.

The campaign kicked off today with a major television buy that will broadcast across Kentucky. The ad titled “Switch” can be viewed here.

“Mitch McConnell is a master at using distortion and distraction to avoid being held accountable for his record,” said Rebecca Lambe, co-chair of Senate Majority PAC. “Between now and Election Day, we are going to make sure that every voter knows that after 30 years in Washington, Mitch McConnell is part of the problem and doesn’t stand with Kentuckians.”

McConnell and his allies have poured unprecedented amounts of money into the race, and have used smear tactics, faux outrage, and distortions to avoid having to own up to McConnell’s record.

“Mitch McConnell talks one way in Kentucky and votes a different way in Washington, DC” said Craig Varoga, President of Patriot Majority USA.  “He thinks this double talk will keep him in the Senate for more than 30 years, but we’re going to use his own words and his real votes to ask the question, over and over, how long is too long?  We are committed to doing whatever it takes to hold Senator McConnell accountable to the voters of Kentucky by using his own words and his real record.”

Recent polling has shown that McConnell is incredibly vulnerable this cycle.

The campaign also launched www.30yearsistoolong.com which will continually be updated with McConnell’s record.

What is Senate Majority PAC?

Senate Majority PAC is fighting to protect and expand the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate. In 2012, Karl Rove and his friends spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to buy the Senate. We ran low-overhead, high-impact campaigns to stop him—and we won. Now we’re ready to take on Mitch McConnell and his radical Republican caucus in 2014.
