A powerful ad urging voters to “Stop the Violent Left” is hitting the airwaves just in time for Tuesday’s high-profile special election between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel in Georgia, a race that has shattered fundraising records for a congressional race.
The 30-second ad sends the message that the same kind of vile hatred that led to the progressive terrorist attack against Republican congressmen last week will continue if Jon Ossoff is elected on Tuesday.
“Now the unhinged left is endorsing and applauding shooting Republicans,” the ad begins, referring to the Bernie Sanders-inspired leftist, James T. Hodgkinson, who opened fire on Republican congressmen as they were practicing for an annual charity baseball game, critically injuring Congressman Steve Scalise who is still in serious condition. Immediately following the attack, progressive leftist Democrats on social media applauded the terror with some only wishing that Hodgkinson was a better shot.
“When will it stop?” the concerned female voice asks, overlayed with a picture of Ossoff gritting his teeth. “It won’t if Jon Ossoff wins on Tuesday because the same unhinged leftists cheering last week’s shooting are all backing Jon Ossoff. And if he wins, they win,” the narrator asserts.
“Stop them. Stop them now,” the ad continues. “Stop Jon Ossoff. Stop Nancy Pelosi. Vote Karen Handel for Congress.”
The ad is produced and paid for by the Principled PAC which says it supports only principled conservatives.
The open seat created in Georgia’s 6th congressional district was created when the former Congressman Tom Price was appointed by President Trump to lead the Department of Health and Human Services.
The race has hauled in over $40 million in total campaign and independent expenditures according to recent Federal Election Commission filings, an all-time record. 97% of Ossoff’s contributions have come from out of state as the left desires to make the race a referendum against Trump and Republicans leading up to the 2018 mid-term elections.
