NEW JERSEY: Attack Ad Says GOP House Rep. Scott Garrett’s Anti-Gay Views Belong In Alabama [VIDEO]

Politico reports:

Between his votes supporting the Confederate flag and stand against gay Republican candidates for Congress, Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) has more in common with rural Alabamans than the people of northern New Jersey. At least, that’s the main message of a new, $162,000 House Majority PAC ad that will air hit TV stations in his district Tuesday.

In the new spot, dubbed “Dixie,” the group aligned with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hits Garrett for voting against a ban on Confederate flags at military cemeteries. It also reminds voters that Garrett last year refused to pay dues to the National Republican Campaign Committee because he believed the GOP election arm actively backed gay candidates, a controversy first reported by POLITICO.

“His views are perfect for rural Alabama, so why is Scott Garrett representing New Jersey?” the voice-over asks. A fiddle plays a folksy tune in the background. “Scott Garrett’s views might sound fine in the Land of Cotton, but we’re not singing his tune in New Jersey.”

This holiday weekend a banner plane will tow this message over New Jersey beaches: “Scott Garrett: Move To Alabama.”
