Democrats Launch Ad Campaign Against GOP Rep. David Valadao, Highlighting Vote For Health Law Replacement Plan
Previously, Rep. David Valadao (R-Hanford) has said he voted for the American Health Care Act in part because of rising costs in his district, which is among the poorest in the nation.
Billboards, Ads Target Rep. David Valadao On Health Care Vote
A Democratic super political action committee is launching an ad campaign attacking Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford, on his 2017 vote to replace the Affordable Care Act with a Republican-engineered health care plan. The Republican plan, known as the American Health Care Act of 2017, passed in the House but was ultimately voted down by the Senate. The eight-week campaign by House Majority PAC will consist of two billboards – one along Highway 180 in Mendota and another on Highway 99 just north of Pixley. Both claim 60,500 of Valadao's constituents would have lost health care had this legislation passed and point motorists toward a website, valadaovalues.com, that further attacks Valadao on health care and how often his votes line up with the agenda of President Donald Trump.
