The Mark Meadows campaign went live with another television ad on WLOS Sept. 27. The Republican candidate in the race for the 11th Congressional District takes aim at President Barack Obama in the spot, which declares that "Obama doesn't get it, but Mark Meadows respects the dream." Meadows is facing off against Democrat Hayden Rogers to represent the Western North Carolina district.
In addition, National Republican Congressional Committee Deputy Press Secretary Meagan Holder sent the following statement announcing the ad's release: “With affordable gas prices and good North Carolina jobs at stake, will Hayden Rogers reject the Sierra Club’s endorsement and their war on energy? With 9.7 unemployment, North Carolina workers need someone who will protect their jobs, not his own special interests.”
