APPLEGATE CAMPAIGN HITS ISSA IN FIRST TV AD

"Lined Pockets" Links Issa and Trump

Solana Beach, CA  - The Doug Applegate for Congress campaign has released "Lined Pockets," a new TV ad airing on broadcast and cable television in the media market encompassing California's 49th District.

The ad highlights Congressman Darrell Issa's endorsement and similarities to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Specifically, the ad hits Issa for steering taxpayer money to help properties he owned. Issa is the wealthiest member of Congress and his wealth increased to over two hundred fifty million dollars during his time in Congress.

"Congressman Darrell Issa is exactly what's wrong with Washington, and southern California voters deserve to know that," said Robert Dempsey, Applegate's campaign manager. "Colonel Doug Applegate will always but the country before any political agenda."

Script:

Voice Over:
Darrell Issa says Donald Trump is the obvious choice for President.

And it's no wonder.

Donald Trump:
I'm really rich.

Nobody knows the system better than me.

Voice Over:

Just like Trump, Issa gamed the system to line his own pockets steering millions in taxpayer money to help properties he owned.

Issa's wealth increased to over two hundred fifty million dollars during his time in Congress.

Colonel Doug Applegate:

It's time we had a Congressman who looks out for you not himself.

I'm Colonel Doug Applegate and I approve this message because I'll always fight for you.
