“Folks at home expect their Member of Congress to deliver on real issues, instead they’ve spent every waking moment trying to remove Trump from office for their own partisan political ends."

Despite the fact that majority of residents now oppose the impeachment Angie Craig voted for both articles of impeachment. President Trump carried Angie Craigs district in 2016.

Previously Republican groups took out several full-page ads asking Angie Craig to work on bipartisan legislation instead of wasting time on an impeachment proceeding that is unlikely to get any traction in the US Senate.

Now the day after the impeachment vote a center-right American Action Network is including Angie Craig as part of the major $2.5 million, 29 district ad buy. As of right now the spending will be limited to digital ads.

“Each and every one of these Members will have to explain their vote to impeach President Trump,” said AAN President Dan Conston. “Folks at home expect their Member of Congress to deliver on real issues, instead they’ve spent every waking moment trying to remove Trump from office for their own partisan political ends. They chose to put the far left’s crusade to impeach this President ahead of what’s best for their constituents, and now there’s going to be a reckoning for it back home.”
