HRO Launches Digital Ads Targeting House Democrats for their Loyalty to Mike Madigan
Over the past week, House Democrats decided to put their allegiance to Mike Madigan over the financial health of Illinois, voting twice for a disastrous budget that would create a $7 billion deficit and necessitate a $1,000 tax hike on Illinois families. This is a clear signal that they would rather jump off the fiscal cliff than stand up to Mike Madigan. On Thursday, the House Republican Organization launched robo calls in seven competitive districts highlighting the reckless decision House Democrats have made. On Friday, HRO released social media ads to further point out their fiscal irresponsibility. Today, HRO launched digital ads to call attention to the unflinching loyalty of seven house democrats in competitive districts to Mike Madigan. The ads will be pushed with substantial resources online.
* Targets are Reps. Andy Skoog, Brandon Phelps, Dan Beiser, John Bradley, Kate Cloonen, Michelle Mussman and Sam Yingling. A sample ad…
* Sample script…
For State House Democrats, it was the ultimate loyalty test.
Given two hours to read Chicago Political Boss Mike Madigan’s phony, five- hundred- page budget, the choice was simple:
Protect Illinois? Or do Madigan’s bidding?
John Bradley chose Madigan.
Raising taxes on the average family by one thousand a year…
…$7 billion in new debt, the largest unbalanced budget ever…
…Even a bailout for Chicago schools…
We pay a dreadful price… for Bradley’s loyalty to Mike Madigan.
=Same goes for Rauner. He’s as Madigan as Madigan.=
@McBeth, I really love that analogy! It is spot on, and so appropriate for the times we are in.
There are simply no white nights here.
More than a decade ago, Madigan blocked a Martire backed bill that could have totally changed where we are at today (HB 750 I think). There was a perfect opportunity to create a real solution. Since that time debt has increased significantly.
Now enter Rauner who simply does not care one iota about workers, especially state workers and public employees. Unless he hired them. It is a perfect storm of dysfunction and destruction.

Don’t forget little mushrooms, there are consequences.
It’s all good until mjm runs ads about grandma getting best up in a nursing home due to cuts for background check enforcements and such. The ads that can be run in cuts are just more emotive than those for a balanced budget. But those are the historical lines that have been drawn and played out for multiple election cycles. But, it’s a good ad. Good visuals for basic still shots.
We have 2 more seasons of “Dad’s Home State”. We plan on doing some major promotion this summer while in “continuous production”, but Season 3, we’re very excited to announce will be January 2017, possibly with more characters but for sure new storylines.
Press junkets are scheduled for Labor Day in New York Los Angeles and Scofield, Utah.
