Crossroads GPS Launches New TV Ad in Ohio Focused on Obama's Failed Energy Policy
New $650,000 buy hits nationwide cable TV and Columbus media market to balance out president's energy policy tour
WASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today announced the launch of a new TV spot in Ohio focusing on President Obama's dramatic failure to keep energy prices down, while he has instead focused on untested and naive strategies that have virtually no impact on energy consumption or demand.
The issue ad, entitled "Deflect", will run in a $650,000 buy on national cable and broadcast networks in Columbus, as well as in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Las Vegas. The Columbus buy begins today and will run through March 23.
The ad urges viewers to contact the White House and Congress to advocate for the passage of a true "all of the above," market-driven energy policy free of government subsidies or interference.
"Instead of a promoting practical energy policy with a focus on making energy more affordable, Obama has delivered an ideological and naive policy that will hurt Ohioans at the pump and as they pay their utility bills," said Crossroads GPS president Steven Law. "There are plenty of supply-boosting policies Obama could sign into law immediately, but he is instead focused on impractical sideshows like algae."
Since taking office, President Obama has taken a number of aggressive steps to limit energy production, which include blocking offshore oil exploration, restricting the development of American oil shale, and personally lobbying against the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future in the years ahead.
