Charleston, SC — LCV Victory Fund and House Majority PAC launched a new $360,000 TV ad today in opposition to Nancy Mace’s campaign against the Lowcountry’s pro-environment Congressman Joe Cunningham. This is LCV Victory Fund’s second ad buy in SC-01 — the group is already up on the air in the Charleston and Savannah markets with “Toxic”.
“Price” will run in the Charleston and Savannah markets starting today, September 18th until September 26th. The ad is part of LCV Victory Fund’s ongoing effort to protect and expand the pro-environment-led House of Representatives.
“Nancy Mace’s cozy relationships with corporate polluters are putting the health and safety of South Carolina communities, especially communities of color, at extreme risk,” said Emily Crerand, LCV Victory Fund National Campaigns Director. “We need to keep Rep. Cunningham in Washington, fighting for clean air, clean water, and to ban drilling off of South Carolina’s coast.”
“Nancy Mace took $25,000 in campaign donations from corporate polluters and is willing to sell out the Lowcountry’s priceless natural resources,” said Abby Curran Horrell, executive director of House Majority PAC. “The Lowcountry deserves a Member of Congress who will stand up for South Carolina, fight for clean drinking water and protect the state’s natural resources. South Carolinians know that Nancy Mace isn’t up to the job.”
LCV Victory Fund’s 2020 poll of battleground House districts, in partnership with NRDC Action Votes, EDF Action, and House Majority PAC, found that environmental messaging, both critiques of anti-environmental politicians and positive messaging in support of environmental champions, can swing competitive House races.
Full text of the new ad is below.
The Lowcountry’s natural resources are priceless
But for Nancy Mace
The price is $25,000
That’s what she got from corporate polluters
Polluters contaminate our water
With cancer-causing chemicals
No wonder Mace opposed legislation that would permanently ban drilling of our coastline
The price we pay with Nancy Mace
Is too high for the Lowcountry
