Check out our first general election ad in Missouri highlighting Republican frontrunner John Brunner’s hypocrisy and fiscal mismanagement. Brunner has been running misleading TV ads against Sen. Claire McCaskill for months.
Brunner claims he’ll reduce spending, but he actually saddled his own company with hundreds of millions in debt and nearly drove it into the ground.
And his inability to answer basic questions about where he would cut the federal budget further demonstrates his hypocrisy on this issue. According to a recent Columbia Daily Tribune article, when pushed to give specifics to back up his rhetoric on making the tough decisions to cut spending, Brunner was unable to name any wasteful federal spending related to Missouri.
With this ad, Missouri voters will know that John Brunner couldn’t balance a checkbook, let alone the federal budget. For more on the ad, check out our fact check document here.
