Below is the script to the robocall that will be played in Alaska as part of the Republican National Committee’s new “Fire Harry Reid” campaign.
President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have blocked hundreds of bills that would spur job creation. Their partisan agenda has caused our healthcare costs to skyrocket. Their environmentalist billionaire backers won’t let the Keystone pipeline bring affordable energy to our state. A vote for Senator Mark Begich is just another rubber stamp on their failed agenda. It’s time to Fire Harry Reid. It’s time to vote against Senator Mark Begich.
Variations of the script—plugging in individual state candidates and officials–will also be used in Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia.
It’s unclear how much the name “Harry Reid” resonates in Alaska. The Senate majority leader certainly isn’t as well-known as the Koch brothers, say, or even Nancy Pelosi. We’ll see if the RNC is successful in changing that.
