SECOND TIME A CHARM
Political strategists say that during the Obama administration not enough was done to promote to the voting public the value of economic assistance packages created by the administration. The lesson was evidently learned. Now comes the House Majority, an outside Democrat group, which spent $1 million dollars earlier this year to advertise the good coming from the administration of President Joe Biden with its American Rescue Plan. The group in late May launched a second round of political spending, to the tune of $1.2 million, to be spent in the House districts of members of Congress considered possibly in a precarious position heading into the 2022 election cycle. Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Troy, Auburn Hills, part of Rochester Hills, western Oakland and Wayne counties), who has been an announced target by national Republicans, was scheduled to receive $190,000 in television commercials touting her role in helping to bring the economy back as the country digs itself out of the pandemic. Commercials started airing in late May and early June.
