INVITE: Press Conference on Capitol Hill Slamming MAGA House for Default Crisis

Veterans, constituents, advocates will fly to DC for the press conference and lobby day

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Tuesday May 23rd at 11:30am, Courage for America will host a press conference on Capitol Hill with Democratic Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA), DPCC Chair Joe Neguse (D-CO), veterans, and constituents of Republican members from four competitive districts — VA-02 (Kiggans), CA-13 (Duarte), NY-19 (Molinaro), and NY-22 (Williams) — to hold the MAGA House accountable for threatening a catastrophic default crisis in order to slash benefits for veterans, seniors, and children. Constituents from the four Republican-held districts will fly to DC for the press conference and participate in a lobby day with Courage for America.

The press conference and lobby day are part of the group’s “MAGA’s Fault If We Default” campaign, which has included a high-six-figure ad buy encompassing multiple sets of digital and TV ads, a press call with Rep. Gallego and Arizona veterans, a creator program with social media influencers, and a 20-day cross-country bus tour ahead of the release of McCarthy’s default bill.
