DESANTIS LOOKS TO TAKE CONTROL OF GOP WHILE A WEAKENED TRUMP… LETS HIM?

THE LINCOLN PROJECT LAUNCHES NEW AD: “SAD!”

September 8, 2021 — Today, The Lincoln Project has released a new ad highlighting the Republican and Fox News obsession over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the seemingly fading influence of Donald Trump over his party and base. The ad, entitled “Sad!,” will air September 8 and 9 in the Tallahassee, West Palm Beach, and Bedminster media markets on Fox News, Fox Business, ESPN, and the Golf Network.

“Republicans in Washington and the Fox News echochamber are having a hard time hiding their excitement over the ascension of Governor Ron DeSantis as party leader,” said Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson. “Tune into Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News at any given hour of the day and you’ll see just who they think Republican voters should be listening to. Ron DeSantis is running away with the party Trump built, and so far there is seemingly nothing the weakened and fading Donald can do about it.”

The full ad can be viewed here.

The Lincoln Project is a group of dedicated Americans who worked to defeat Donald J. Trump and continue to fight on behalf of American democracy.
