Jason Smith unveils new statewide ad amid Senate speculation
Congressman Jason smith came out with new statewide publicity amid speculation he might jump into the Republican primary for US Senate.
The “Farm Sense” ad is broadcast in digital and social media markets, his team said. He criticizes the Democrats’ stimulus plans, saying he will raise taxes, cut medicare and include tax breaks for electric vehicles.
“While Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Nancy Pelosi do all they can to make the farm happen, I stand up for the people of Missouri every day. I am fighting to prevent Joe Biden from funding the Chinese lab where COVID-19 was created, ”Smith said in a statement. “I am fighting to make sure that socialists like Bernie Sanders cannot tell hard-working Missourians how to live their lives. And I am fighting to prevent Nancy Pelosi and the radical Democrats in Congress from demolishing President Trump’s great accomplishments. ”
The announcement follows a direct mail that compared his case to that of former President Donald Trump that was sent to voters outside his 8th Congressional District and a recent statewide appeal demanding that the President Joe Biden resigns following withdrawal from Afghanistan. He met Trump and held a fundraiser at the former president’s home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida.
Should Smith decide to embark on the race for the US Senate in Missouri, he would join Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler and Congressman Billy Long as well as Attorney General Eric Schmitt, former Governor Eric Greitens and attorney Mark McCloskey in the GOP primary.
Smith declared over $ 1.6 million in cash at the end of the last cycle – more than any other declared candidate for the US Senate. Hartzler was the closest with more than $ 1.4 million in cash.
Smith has represented Southeast Missouri in Congress since 2013. Prior to that, he was one of the youngest members of the Missouri Legislature.
In Congress, Smith is the leading member of the House Budget Committee, where he criticized Democrats’ spending priorities like the Infrastructure Bill. He is also a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
