Former Clinton policy aide Ed Meier is hoping to use constituents’ hatred for President Trump as leverage in his campaign against Texas representative Pete Sessions.
To that end, Meier has launched a new website and video, where he emphasizes his Texas roots and service to Clinton’s State Department while taking shots at Sessions by exposing his loyalty to President Trump.
“This is a pivotal moment,” Meier tells voters in his ad. “We have a president who creates chaos, not compromise. But Congressman Pete Sessions has voted with Donald Trump 100 percent of the time. No matter who you voted for, do you support Donald Trump 100 percent of the time? For Congressman Sessions, it’s not about listening to you, it’s about taking care of Donald Trump.”
Sessions ran unopposed in the Dallas-area 32nd District last year, but Clinton ended up defeating Trump in the district, giving Democrats reason to think that tying Sessions to Trump will be a winning strategy.
The ad uses footage of Sessions telling constituents at a town hall meeting that they “don’t know how to listen” regarding the repeal of Obamacare.
In response, Meier says in the video: “We’ve heard enough, that’s why so many Texans are speaking out, and that’s why I’m running for Congress.”
Another Democratic hopeful in the race is former NFL linebacker, Colin Allred. He served in the Obama administration’s Department of Housing and Urban Development.
