Major GOP Group Readies Pro-Immigration Ad Blitz

March 01, 2013 (1 min read)

"Republicans looking to bring their party around on immigration are set to launch a major ad campaign in support Congressional efforts to pass a comprehensive bill.  According to Politico, the American Action Network, which spent $44 million backing GOP candidates in 2011 and 2012, is preparing a broad and long-term advocacy campaign to boost conservative lawmakers who could face a backlash from their constituents if they vote for a path to citizenship for the nations' 11 million undocumented immigrants.  The first ad features Carlos Gutierrez, who was Commerce Secretary under President Bush and leading his own pro-immigration group, discussing his own success story as an immigrant from Cuba." - TPM, Feb. 28, 2013.
