After being accused of domestic violence, Joe Radinovich continues to back Keith Ellison

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new television ad, “Ashamed,” in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District. The ad highlights Joe Radinovich’s support for Keith Ellison who has been accused of domestic violence, instead of believing his victim and joining the National Organization for Women in calling for Ellison to end his campaign. The ad will run on television and digital platforms throughout the district.

“Keith Ellison has been accused of domestic violence and Joe Radinovich continues to support his campaign despite the allegations,” said Courtney Alexander, CLF Communications Director. “Joe Radinovich’s choice to put his political interests over standing with a domestic abuse victim is appalling. Joe Radinovich should immediately join the National Organization for Women in calling for Keith Ellison to end his campaign.”

Watch the ad, “(MN-08) Ashamed,” here.
