National Conservative Group Targets Gov. John Bel Edwards’ Tax Proposals

America Rising Squared, an affiliated entity of the conservative America Rising political action committee, is launching a digital campaign against Edwards’s plan. It’s at least the third ad campaign prompted by Edwards’ push to overhaul taxes to prop up the state’s budget.

In the newest 30-second ad, America Rising uses clips from local media reports on the potential impact of the tax, concluding “Edwards’ Tax Hikes: Wrong for Louisiana.”

“The only bipartisanship Gov.Edwards has brought to Baton Rouge is united opposition to his horrible tax plan,” said Nathan Brand of America Rising. “Louisiana families and businesses need a growing economy, not Edwards’ liberal tax and spend agenda.”

America Rising has identified Edwards, a Democrat, as a target as he mounts his re-election bid.
