Congressional Leadership Fund, the super PAC affiliated with House Republican Leadership, released a new television ad slamming Greedy Dan McCready for a special interest lobbying scheme that forced North Carolinians to pay higher electric bills while steering huge profits to companies like his. The ad, which will run on broadcast and cable television as well as online, is the first part of CLF’s $1.65 million investment in NC-09.

In addition to the ad campaign, CLF is spending more than $150,000 on a field program, with nearly 100 walkers knocking on 75,000 doors in the 9th District. You can read more about the program here.

“Greedy Dan McCready had special interest lobbyists rig the system so North Carolinians would pay more on their electric bills and make him rich,” said CLF Spokesman Calvin Moore. “Voters can’t trust Dan McCready to put them first in Congress because he’s only ever looking out for himself.”
