WASHINGTON D.C. — The American Energy Alliance released today a 30 second advertisement that will air in Ohio and Virginia markets, starting Oct. 13 and running through Oct. 26. The “Stand With Coal” ad features video footage of President Barack Obama pledging to make “electricity rates skyrocket” and “bankrupt” the coal industry. Vice President Biden is also featured in the ad, claiming that the Obama administration’s energy policy is “the best it’s ever been.”
The ad, which will run primarily in coal country, is the latest phase in AEA’s year long, multi-million dollar effort to educate the American people about the Obama administration’s failed energy record. In April, AEA’s “Nine Dollar Gas” ad aired across the country on cable and TV, in addition to garnering more than 1.7 million views on YouTube. Similarly, AEA will run the “Stand with Coal” spot online.
“The Obama administration has been trying to kill affordable energy from day one, and the American Energy Alliance is committed to fighting back in the war on coal. Coal is America’s most plentiful energy resource, and it provides the largest share of our nation’s electricity needs. AEA stands with coal, and we are mobilizing grassroots activists to support this vital industry that powers our economy and supports jobs in some of our nation’s hardest hit areas,” AEA President Thomas Pyle said.
