Courage for America Launches Ad Buy in Five Congressional Districts Condemning Trump’s Dangerous Support of Insurrectionists

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Courage for America launched a new digital ad campaign highlighting former President Donald Trump’s interview with TIME Magazine, in which Trump condoned political violence following the 2024 election if he does not win. He also expressed clear intentions to “absolutely” consider pardoning Jan. 6 insurrectionists, along with other plans for continuing the dangerous MAGA agenda. The ads will run all week on Meta in five districts:

  • Rep. Mike Garcia (CA-27)
  • Rep. Jen Kiggans (VA-02)
  • Rep. Scott Perry (PA-10)
  • Rep. David Schweikert (AZ-01)
  • Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY-21)

“No one will ever forget where they were when insurrectionists stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 to disrupt the certification of the 2020 election. That dark day in American history was an attack on our democracy, and former President Trump’s outlined priorities if he wins the 2024 signal ongoing threats to our democracy,” said José Morales, spokesperson for Courage for America. “Speaker Mike Johnson and MAGA Republicans are continuing to push this blatantly anti-democratic and unpopular agenda through Congress. We remain committed to calling attention to extremist threats to our democracy.”

The ad features the following text from “How Far Will Trump Go,” which highlights how CFA Councilmember Officer Michael Fanone survived the insurrection:

The events of Jan. 6, during which a pro-Trump mob attacked the center of American democracy in an effort to subvert the peaceful transfer of power, was a profound stain on his legacy. Trump has sought to recast an insurrectionist riot as an act of patriotism. “I call them the J-6 patriots,” he says. When I ask whether he would consider pardoning every one of them, he says, “Yes, absolutely.”
