Workers at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) are ramping up their efforts to educate voters ahead of several 2020 elections. They recently released a billboard on wheels at Alabama Senator Doug Jones’s campaign launch over the weekend. It reminded voters of the senator’s vow to side with self-described Democrat-socialists.
“But whatever we do, I’ll end up supporting the nominee,” stated Doug. “We’re not going to run away from that, and I hope to have some of my colleagues come down here at some point, we’ll see how that goes.”
The group is pushing more than big billboards. It’s also sponsoring Facebook ads scrutinizing certain White House contenders. Their latest ad compares voting for former Vice President Joe Biden in 2020 to the equivalent of electing President Obama for another term.

Other Facebook posts ask voters who they would pick in a White House showdown between President Trump and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, while another ad accused Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders of wanting to “turn America into a socialist country.”
The NRSC also reached their hand in the Georgia senatorial race by buying the likely campaign web address for former House candidate Jon Ossoff, who is now running for the Democrat nomination.
JonOssoff.com now redirects viewers to an article accusing the congressional candidate of puffing up his national security credentials in a misleading manner. Despite the growing concerns of Ossoff’s resume, the 30-year-old 2020 senatorial hopeful threw his hat in the ring.
“My campaign in 2017, we have made a lot of progress,” he stated. “These have been hard fought competitive elections — it gets closer every year, progress takes time.”
To make that so-called progress, Ossoff will need to beat three now-declared Democrat candidates for the nomination.
As the congressional and White House races continue to heat up, the NRSC said they will continue to call out candidate’s on their track record.
