Trump’s feelings got hurt. Now, Ohio pays the price.
August 21, 2020 – The Lincoln Project and Republican Voters Against Trump (RVAT) are today releasing a new video, “Goodyear”, as a part of their ongoing partnership in Ohio: Operation Grant. The spot will target key media markets in Cleveland, Akron, and Youngstown. It will air digitally and via broadcast in select locations.
“This week we’ve seen a parade of well-respected Republicans, including former Ohio Governor John Kasich, voice their support for Joe Biden,” said Tim Miller, political director of Republican Voters Against Trump. “Meanwhile, the President’s attacking an American company that provides well-paying jobs. Operation Grant couldn’t be more needed.”
Reed Galen, a co-founder of The Lincoln Project, put the attack in perspective, “Ohioans are already dealing with the rising unemployment caused by Trump’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The last thing they need is to suffer the economic aftershocks of a presidential temper tantrum.”
The Lincoln Project plans to spend $425,000 airing “Goodyear” today through next week.
As the general election approaches, Americans everywhere will now have to ask themselves what happens if the president’s ire falls on their city, state, or employer next.
