News release from Lamar Alexander campaign:
NASHVILLE, TN – Lamar Alexander’s re-election campaign today announced the launch of a statewide television ad setting the record straight regarding Senator Alexander’s consistent, principled stand against Obamacare.
The ad begins, “Lamar Alexander led the conservative fight against Obamacare. Voted twenty-three times against it. Stood up to the president at the White House Health Care Summit.”
Alexander’s debate with President Obama at the White House Health Care Summit is highlighted in the spot. The two spar over Alexander’s statement that the president’s plan would lead to more expensive health insurance premiums for individuals. Later, both the president and Fox News affirmed that Lamar was right, and the president was wrong, about the true costs of Obamacare.
The 60-second television ad airs statewide beginning August 29.
