Watch: House Majority PAC slams Allen West on veterans issues

in Uncategorized by

“Allen West talks a lot about his military service, but in Washington he hasn’t served us,” veterans say in a new ad from the Democratic super PAC. “West voted against protecting troops fighting overseas from foreclosures, against $28 million in medical research for wounded warriors like me, against suicide prevention and counseling for combat vets. West even voted against the ban on baggage fees for troops heading into combat zones!”

The spot begins running today in West Palm Beach and will continue for a week.

It’s the fourth ad House Majority PAC has run in this race, part of a $1.5 million TV buy. All the vets are local, including three that are from the 18th district.

This ad is likely to provoke a strong reaction from West, who is advertising heavily on his military experience and who has attacked his opponent for gallivanting around while he was in combat.
