Providence, RI - The Gaspee Project, Rhode Island’s premiere conservative political advocacy organization, announced today the launch of its “It’s Time to Make the Clear Choice: Mobs or Jobs?” election spending campaign. The Gaspee Project expects to spend approximately $50,000 before the end of October on "independent expenditures" in targeted General Assembly races.
“Businesses and families are fed up with both the entrenched political class and the extremist newcomers to the political scene,” said Clay Johnson, chairman of the nonprofit organization. “Our supporters - the builders, the caregivers, and the professionals of Rhode Island - demand a new direction for our state.”
The expenditures (which are not coordinated with or authorized by any candidate committee) will include postcard mailers, social media, audio ads, and local print ads. Only candidates who took the Taxpayer Protection Pledge were considered for support.
The theme of Gaspee’s campaign clearly contrasts Democrats, who are beholden to unruly and violent socialist “mobs” … vs … Republican candidates, who support the rule-of-law and a free-market approach that creates “jobs”.
