Ad claims Snyder outsourced jobs
h/t Detroit News (Political)
A TV commercial produced for the Willow Run Tea Party Caucus resurrects allegations Gov. Rick Snyder outsourced jobs to China while serving as Gateway Computer’s CEO.
The spots are being aired at the height of Snyder’s economic development tour of Asia.
The caucus members oppose drumming up business with China because they think it undermines the U.S. economy and poses national security risks. They also oppose Snyder’s plan for the New International Trade Crossing because they fear China will put in a bid on it and could end up controlling a major trade route with Canada.
Tea Party Director Dennis Moore said the spot was created at the invitation of Bloomfield Hills producer Joel Ross , who produced it essentially at no charge. He didn’t know who was responsible for the TV buy.
“I don’t know who’s funding it, and I really don’t care,” Moore said.
Ross said he’s paying for the spots out of his own pocket because he shares the caucus’s concerns about being too cozy with China. They’re running in the Jackson area on about 10 channels, but Ross wouldn’t divulge the cost.
