The Congressional Leadership Fund is continuing its attack ads against Congressional District 2 candidate Matt Heinz, releasing a new 30-second ad.

The new ad, dubbed "Pelosi’s Rubber Stamp,” accuses the Democratic candidate of "blind support for [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi’s failed liberal policies" including the Affordable Care Act as well as supporting the Iran nuclear deal.

“Obamacare is on the verge of collapse, yet Matt Heinz continues to defend a law that has left Arizonans with fewer options and skyrocketing rates. Whether it’s because Nancy Pelosi supports Obamacare or because Heinz helped with its roll out, Heinz proves he is another rubber stamp for the status quo,” said Ruth Guerra, spokeswoman for CLF. 

The spot is largely speculative as Heinz has never been elected to Congress or voted on either bill mentioned in ad.

"Pelosi’s Rubber Stamp” is part of a $700,000 campaign against Heinz, with the 30-second spots expected to start airing in Tucson today.

From the ad:


Matt Heinz can’t wait for January 3rd.

That’s when he would become a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi and her agenda.

Like Obamacare.

With its 700 billion dollars in Medicare cuts.

Skyrocketing premiums. And cancelled plans. 

Worse, Matt Heinz defends the Iran nuclear deal, which could put Iran on a path to nuclear weapons.

Matt Heinz won’t represent you in Congress. He’d be a rubber stamp for her.
