MeidasTouch Expands Texas Anti Trump TV Buy to Six-Figures After Poll Shows Biden Leading Trump
Super PAC Unveils New Ad “Trump is a Disaster” Which Will Air on Dallas and Houston TV This Week
LOS ANGELES, CA — Following news of a new Quinnipiac poll in Texas out yesterday showing Joe Biden leading Donald Trump 45 to 44, today MeidasTouch, a progressive Super PAC, doubled down on its television ad campaign in the Lone Star state. The Super PAC is expanding its TV buy to six figures, reaching beyond its initial five-figure cable television buy in Houston on CNN and FOX News Channel to now include broadcast news in the Houston and Dallas television markets.
Today’s announcement comes after the founders of MeidasTouch were featured earlier this week in a profile story by CNN, and after the Super PAC had begun running ads in not just Texas but also Alaska and Montana — all states that polling shows are increasingly becoming more competitive in the presidential contest — becoming the first presidential Super PAC to run ads in those three states. In addition to this new wave of ad buys, from last week until this week the Super PAC ran the ad “Creepy Trump” on Washington, D.C. television, a spot that went viral and received well over 5 million views online.
In continuing their barrage of anti-Trump ads on television, today Brett Meiselas, one of the founders of the PAC, remarked:
“Donald Trump is an undeniable embarrassment for America across the globe. It is previously unthinkable and utterly tragic that we have a President who celebrates violent racists, protects treasonous criminals, and pals around with noted sex traffickers, but denigrates the disabled, maligns American war veterans and attacks mothers exercising their First Amendment rights. Trump is an absolute and unparalleled disaster.”
MeidasTouch is a progressive Democratic PAC founded by three brothers, all lifelong Democrats, Ben Meiselas (35), Brett Meiselas (30), and Jordan Meiselas (27) during the quarantine. Ben is an accomplished civil rights litigator, entertainment dealmaker, and nonprofit leader. Brett is an Emmy Award-winning video editor, and Jordan is a marketing supervisor. MeidasTouch has produced over 40 videos in the past three months averaging approximately 1.5 million views each. Some of the most popular videos include ByeIvanka (7.9 million views), Vote Out Hate (7.1 million views), The Snake (3.5 million views), and Freds Failure (3.1 million views). In addition to MeidasTouch.com, the group owns the domains MAGA2020.com and FredsFailure.com. Although it was only recently formed, MeidasTouch has amassed among the largest and most engaged followings of any PAC and has become one of the most powerful grassroots movements across all platforms this election cycle.
MeidasTouch is bringing back passion to progressive politics, exposing Trump as a threat to our Democracy, and rallying Americans around shared values of civility, decency, and competence. The goal of the PAC is to defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election by spotlighting his failures, lies, creepy acts, and recklessness.
