WASHINGTON, April 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Floyd Brown, producer of the famous 1988 "Willie Horton" commercial that helped defeat Michael Dukakis, has just launched a new issue advocacy ad campaign that details the records of Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton. Citizens for a Safe and Prosperous America is headed by California State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Regarding the new ad, DeVore said, "Senators Obama and Clinton want to raise taxes. Americans should have this information and be aware of the other extremely liberal positions Obama and Clinton hold." He collaborated with Brown, a long time conservative strategist, to produce the powerful 30-second television ad exposing these Senator's records on taxes, immigration and other important issues. The ad is set to begin airing in North Carolina this week. "The ad draws a parallel between Obama and Clinton's records on taxes," said Brown. "The bottom line is that they can't deal with our economic problems by raising taxes. International competition cannot be addressed by raising taxes and raising the costs of business in America." A News Conference is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23 in the Lisagor Room at the National Press Club in Washington, DC from noon until 12:30 pm Eastern Time featuring the ad's producer Floyd Brown discussing the impact of the ad airing in North Carolina, and to show the news media a copy for the first time. The news conference is sponsored by Citizens for a Safe and Prosperous America.
