Republican congressional candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks released her second TV ad Tuesday. While her first ad focused on her biography this one hits her opponent, Democrat Rita Hart.

The transcript of the 30-second ad, which will air district-wide, reads: 

Narrator: “Liberal politicians in Washington did nothing to protect us from the pandemic.  While they bickered, lives were lost, jobs destroyed.  Washington Democrats played politics, so did Rita Hart.  Democrats refused to hold China accountable, did nothing to stop viruses from Asia, just like Rita Hart. But Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks took COVID seriously.  Even warned us it was coming.” 

Miller-Meeks: “We can fight this virus, better prepare for the next one, and get Iowa safely back to work.” 

The ad caused quite a stir with a tweet. The report later tried to explain away her tweet.

BONUS: Today the National Republican Senatorial Committee released a new video. It doesn’t pull any punches and is titled: Say No To The Mob. In their release the NRSC says:

“As violent riots intensify across the country, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) today released a new video highlighting what’s at stake if Democrats take control of the Senate and give voice to their extreme base of supporters.”
