The Republican State Leadership Committee announced a new digital ad attacking Democrats over “cancel culture” set to launch next week.
The initiative is the organization’s first paid spot of the 2021 cycle.
The 30-second spot attacks democrats for Major League Baseball’s decision to pull its All-Star game out of Georgia in opposition to a voting reform law widely viewed as meant to curb voting by the state’s largely Democratic non-white communities.
NARRATOR: A great American pastime. The left took our game and weaponized it.
NEWS ANCHOR 1 (audio): Pulling its All Star Game out of the Atlanta Braves stadium
NEWS ANCHOR 2 (audio): The state could lose more than $100 million.
NEWS ANCHOR 3 (audio): Simply crushing
NARRATOR: Who was hardest hit? The concession stand worker planning on overtime. The hotel staff expecting full capacity. The small businesses doing everything they can to survive a pandemic. We must end the cancel culture madness. The left cancelled our jobs. They are coming for yours next.
The ad will launch in New Jersey and Virginia, the only states with gubernatorial races this year, next week, though it’s not clear how much of the five-figure buy will be dedicated to the Garden State.
Gov. Phil Murphy does not appear in the spot, which briefly shows image of President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
