Energy Independence - GOPAC Ad

Will you please take 2 minutes to watch our new ad, Energy Independence?

In a second I will tell you why it’s so important that you watch this ad. First, let me explain why GOPAC has created an ad at this point in the campaign.

This election, voters are going to elect candidates with concrete ideas for bringing energy costs under control and protecting Americans from those who want to do harm to us.

Which means Republicans need to make sure voters know that we support an “all-of-the-above” approach to energy independence.

Conservation. Nuclear. Wind. Natural Gas. Clean Coal. Oil. No one source will provide our country with complete energy independence. But combined Americans will no longer need to depend on energy coming from sources that are unfriendly, unreliable or both.

Not only do voters need to know where Republicans stand on energy independence, but our candidates need to be focused on this crucial issue in these final days.

Training Republicans on the importance of discussing energy is not new for GOPAC. You may recall, we’ve been urging Republicans to discuss energy independence ever since energy costs skyrocketed this past summer.

At the Republican National Convention, the impact this issue has on winning voters’ support became clear with the response I received when I said Republicans believe it’s time to “Drill, Baby, Drill!”. We now have “Drill, Baby, Drill!” bumper stickers and lapel pins that our candidates and supporters are using to promote energy independence.

We also sent our candidates across the country a DVD of energy independence speeches by former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister and Texas State Representative Phil King. Those speeches are also available on our website via video and podcast.

Now, here is why it’s so important that you watch this ad.

We need voters to hear the Republican message that an all-of-the-above approach leading to energy security goes hand-in-hand with national security.

The best ways to do this are: 1) by having strong supporters, like you, forwarding this ad to your family and friends; and 2) by airing it on popular websites such as MSN, FoxNews, ABCNews, YahooNews and FoxBusiness.

Right now, we don’t have the resources to buy the air time to get this ad in front of voters. We have already used every dollar available to invest in thousands of Republican candidates this year.

That’s why I’m asking you to make the most generous contribution you can to GOPAC right now.

The contribution you make today will be used to air our ad, “Energy Independence.” In turn, you will be able to look back at this moment and know that you played a vital role in moving America towards energy security and national security.
