Amid Pandemic, Dem PAC to Spend $5 Million to Attack Trump Over Coronavirus Response

Per the Washington Post a Democratic super PAC said Tuesday it would spend $5 million on digital advertising flaying President Trump for his response to the novel coronavirus, one of several groups that planned to devote resources to this type of messaging.

McGowan said it was critical for outside groups like hers to exact a political price on Trump as his possible Democratic opponents, former vice president Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), aim to project leadership by staying above the fray.

Tara McGowan tweeted:

Trump’s denial, unpreparedness + utter incompetence has worsened a national health crisis. The facts speak for themselves – but at a time when the president himself spreads disinformation, it’s our responsibility to make sure voters are reached with those facts.

Meanwhile, President Trump struck a cautiously optimistic tone Tuesday, declaring

“One day we’ll be standing, possibly, up here, and we’ll say, ‘Well, we won’ and we’re going to say that. Sure as you’re sitting there, we’re going to say that. And we’re going to win. I think we’re going to win faster than people think, I hope.”
