imageDavenport, IA – On Sunday The Cedar Rapids Gazette  released an article fact checking Congressman Dave Loebsack’s (D-IA) first negative attack ad against John Archer, candidate for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District.  The ad falsely alleges Archer had a hand in outsourcing jobs for thousands of Iowans.  The Gazette stated, “This ad stretches to link Archer to those figures cited and bungles his position with Deere.  We rate this ad’s overall message as mostly false.”

“The voters of Iowa’s 2nd district deserve better from their candidates for Congress,” said Archer.  “We need candidates who are willing to talk about the issues, not lob false attacks.  I am disappointed that Congressman Loebsack would use misleading and downright false claims as a way to win re-election. I wish we were talking about providing families, veterans, and seniors with the certainty they desperately need.  This election should be focused on these areas, not misleading voters with false and negative attacks.”
