Lizzie Fletcher Releases New Ad Responding to Unfounded Attacks and Calling for Change
Calls Negative Ads About Her “Ridiculous”
Houston, Texas – Lizzie Fletcher released her fifth ad of the general election today. Titled “Change That,” the ad is a response to John Culberson’s ads that grossly misrepresent Fletcher’s stances on issues, including health care and immigration, and that demonstrate the kind of partisanship that needs to change in Washington.
This ad, Fletcher’s fifth commercial of the general election, will run on broadcast and cable starting today.
“John Culberson’s claims about me in his ads are ridiculous,” said Fletcher. “I don’t support the things he says I do. The Houston Chronicle and the Washington Post have called out the claims in Culberson’s ads as false, yet we are now seeing them in ads on TV, on line, and in the mail. He should know better. He should do better. And we deserve better.”

Transcript, “Change That:”
I’m Lizzie Fletcher.
You’ve probably seen John Culberson’s negative ads against me.
I don’t support a government takeover of health care.
Of course I don’t support violent criminals coming into our country.
And I won’t take orders from Nancy Pelosi, or anyone else.
That’s the problem with Congress. Partisan politics come first.
Republicans and Democrats aren’t willing to work together.
I approve this message because we need to change that.
