The Lincoln Project uses leaked recording to slam GOP senator in brutal new ad

A new ad went live on The Lincoln Project Monday that exposed Senator Dan Sullivan’s (R-AK) “extensive ties to the special interest group responsible for the controversial Pebble Mine.”

In the ad, Pebble Mine executives discuss their power and control over Sullivan.

“Dan Sullivan has shown Alaskans where his loyalties lie,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “Alaskans deserve a Senator who will listen to their concerns and will act in their best interest, not special interest. Dan Sullivan doesn’t represent Alaska’s values.”

Pebble Mine is a very large porphyry copper, gold, and molybdenum mineral deposit in the Bristol Bay region of Southwest Alaska. Mine developers are seeking federal permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Engineering. The project is expected to take three years once state permitting is in place, should it be approved.

Sullivan has ramped up his denial of support for Pebble Mine.

However, Johnson said that he was loath to admit it publicly because of the strong support the president had received from Wisconsin GOP voters, despite the fact that the president narrowly lost the state this year.

Donald Trump PAC has pocketed most of the cash he bilked from his supporters to fund election lawsuits: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has raised about $170 million from his aggressive fundraising campaign ostensibly aimed at fueling his baseless election challenges, but the majority of the money is actually going to the new political action committee he set up after the election, according to The New York Times.

Trump has bombarded supporters with appeals for cash as he wages a fruitless legal campaign to challenge the results of an election he lost by more than 6 million votes. But the president's attorneys have failed to back up his allegations of fraud and irregularities with any actual evidence.
