New Malinowski ad contrasts Kean record on abortion

By David Wildstein, October 01 2020 9:18 pm

Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-Ringoes) contrasts his record on abortion with his Republican opponent, Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr., in a new cable TV ad that began airing today.

The ad, “For Sale,” claims that Kean took campaign contributions from anti-choice groups in 2006 and “voted to restrict a woman’s right to choose” in 2004.  The ad also holds Kean accountable for removing funding for Planned Parenthood from the state budget while Chris Christie was governor.

Script: Narrator – “Tom Kean, Jr. was backed by nearly $100,000 from anti-choice groups.  Kean voted to restrict a woman’s right to choose and defund Planed Parenthood.  He supports judges who’d overturn our right to choose.  Tom Kean, Jr. sells us out every time.”  Malinowski – “I don’t take corporate PAC money, so I don’t owe them a thing.  I’m pro-choice. I’ll protect Planned Parenthood.  And if the Supreme Court takes away our rights, I’ll fight to get them back. I’m Tom Malinowski and I approved this message.”

“For just $100,000, Tom Kean Jr. sold out a woman’s right to choose to the special interests backing his campaigns–just like he always does,” said Daniel Fleiss, Malinowski’s campaign manager. “Tom Malinowski will never take a penny from corporate PACs, and with Roe v. Wade at risk in the Supreme Court, he’ll fight to protect our rights. The choice couldn’t be clearer for voters this November.”
