New Scott Bruun TV Ad counters Schrader attack

By Scott Bruun campaign,

WEST LINN, Ore. – Today State Rep. Scott Bruun, candidate for Congress in Oregon’s 5th district, released a new television advertisement setting the record straight on Social Security. Bruun’s latest advertisement, “Seen, ” also brings attention to first-term incumbent Democrat Kurt Schrader’s record of voting for $500 billion in Medicare cuts. The advertisement can be found here. “Kurt Schrader wants to have it both ways,” Alee Lockman, Scott Bruun for Congress spokeswoman, stated. “He wants to mask his own record of hurting seniors with $500 billion in Medicare cuts by resorting to false attacks about his opponent. The fact of the matter is that Scott Bruun has a clear record of supporting seniors and will fight for reforms that protect Social Security for all generations.”

Script for Bruun TV ad, “Seen”

SCOTT BRUUN: I’m Scott Bruun, and I approve this message. Have you seen this ad?

MAN IN AD: If Bruun had his way…

WOMAN IN AD: I’d be out on the street.

SCOTT BRUUN: That ad is not true. Kurt Schrader is just trying to scare seniors. I do not support cutting Social Security, and Schrader knows it.
