Get ready for some uncensored graphic television ads on abortion in the 2012 primary race against House Speaker John Boehner for the 8th Congressional District.
That’s the plan of tea party activist David Lewis who announced his candidacy on Friday and said he will unveil those ads Monday on his website.
The 26-year-old Batavia resident and married father of a 2-year-old girl said he’s riding on a single issue: Boehner’s support of a federal budget that provided funding to Planned Parenthood, which Lewis calls “the largest killer of unborn babies in America.”
“I’m not delusional. I don’t know if I have a chance at beating the Speaker of the House,” Lewis said Friday. “But what I can do is show the Ohio voters that Boehner has a box full of empty rhetoric. He doesn’t really vote for his convictions. He’s an establishment Republican. He doesn’t believe in the tea party. He doesn’t really believe in the pro-life issues.”
