Posted on 03/13/14 in Uncategorized, No Comments

Boise, ID – Today Mike Simpson’s campaign announced the release of its first television ad, “Defense,” which begins running in the Twin Falls and Idaho Falls media markets. The ad sets the record straight on Simpson’s conservative record, and his fight to cut spending, reduce the debt and repeal Obamacare.

“Personal Injury Lawyer Bryan Smith and his Washington D.C. allies continue to show a pattern of trying to smear Mike Simpson’s proven conservative record with false, negative attacks,” said campaign spokeswoman Sarah Nelson. “The fact is Mike Simpson is a strong fiscal conservative who has voted for a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution and for trillions in budget cuts.”
