PRESS RELEASE–New TV Ad Targets Senator McCain’s Stance on Accepting Syrian Refugees

Scottsdale, AZ – Senator John McCain is being hit with a new television ad by his conservative primary challenger, small businessman Alex Meluskey. The ad, which can be seen here, focuses on Senator McCain’s recent argument for allowing potentially dangerous Syrian Refugees into the United States.

“In the three years since, the attack at Fort Hood in Texas has been forgotten by many,” the ad begins. “Since 9-11, there have been 43 terrorist attacks on American soil. One of them was at Fort Hood, Texas, where a radicalized Muslim killed thirteen American soldiers, but John McCain favors letting more radicals into America.”

“I’m saying that there are some refugees that I think we could take into this country,” the ad quotes Senator John McCain. The host then asks Senator McCain who would vet the refugees, to which Senator McCain answered, “Well, first of all, I’d vet a number of them because I know them.”

The ad continues to question the United States’ ability to properly vet the refugees, asking “Senator, that radical at Fort Hood was an American citizen, a doctor and a U.S. Army Major. If we can’t vet him, how can you possibly claim to vet these refugees? It’s time to end the influx of terrorists into America.”

Small businessman, radio host and FAIRtax champion Alex Meluskey is running a grassroots campaign to take on sitting U.S. Senator John McCain in the Arizona Republican Primary in the same vein as now-Congressman Dave Brat’s historic 2014 takedown of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Mr. Meluskey is taking on the establishment in Washington, D.C. and an entrenched 5-term Senator at a time when America needs new ideas to solve our nation’s challenges.
