Super PAC TV Ad Features Reagan’s “Are You Better Off” Speech to Run Nation Wide
MeidasTouch Runs Six-Figure Nationwide Buy On Fox News Channel
LOS ANGELES, CA — Today MeidasTouch, a leading progressive Super PAC in the U.S. presidential contest, released a new ad titled, “#AreYouBetterOff.” The spot will have a six-figure buy behind it and will air exclusively on Fox News Channel over the course of the next week, beginning tomorrow.
The “Are You Better Off” ad features the famous debate moment when President Ronald Reagan asked if voters were better off than they were four years ago juxtaposed with current images of Americans waiting in long lines to get tested for COVID-19 and statistics showing the nation’s mass unemployment along with the skyrocketing coronavirus death total.
Today’s announcement comes after the founders of MeidasTouch were featured last week in a profile story by CNN, and after the Super PAC had begun running ads in Texas, where last week it placed a six-figure buy, as well as in Alaska and Montana — all states that polling shows are increasingly becoming more competitive in the presidential contest. Notably, MeidasTouch was the first presidential Super PAC to run ads in those three states. In addition to this new ad buy, the Super PAC previously ran the ad “Creepy Trump” on Washington, D.C. television, a spot that went viral and received well over 5 million views online.

Upon making public this new ad and nation-wide buy, Brett Meiselas, one of the founders of the PAC, commented:
“When Americans genuinely ask themselves if they are better off now than they were four years ago, the answer couldn’t be more clear. This is even true for Republican voters, which is why we targeted this ad exclusively for viewers of Fox News. The course that we’ve been on over the last four years has undeniably been a dangerous failure. Americans deserve a new path, which is why voters will send Trump packing in November.”
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), #VoteOutHate (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.
