John Brunner: I did, too, build my company; I'm a success
Thursday, Harry Reid and his liberal backers continued their $2 million falsely negative attack on John Brunner. While the newest TV again falsely attacks a successful American business, Reid must have hired President Obama’s speechwriter, as the ad claims that John Brunner didn’t create jobs.
Sounds familiar to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” attack on small business owners and American enterprise. In fact, Brunner for Senate released a new web-only video asking Barack Obama and Harry Reid, “If John Brunner didn’t build those jobs or that business, then who did?”
If John Brunner didn’t build his successful company, then who did? Who built Germ-X? Who took a company with $25 million in revenue and in 15 years built it into an industry leader with more than $600 million in revenue? Who built a company that went from 80 jobs to more than 1,000? And who, exactly, so positively impacted the lives of his employees?
Yes Mr. President, yes Harry Reid, yes Claire McCaskill, John Brunner did build that, John Brunner did build those jobs, and John Brunner did build that successful American business.
“Despite Harry Reid and Claire McCaskill’s attempt to interfere in the Republican primary — to the tune of $2 million — Missourians know John Brunner’s American success story of taking a small family business and transforming it into an industry leader,” said Todd Abrajano, Brunner spokesman. “It’s clear that Claire McCaskill and Harry Reid will stop at nothing as they meddle in our Republican primary, and as they attempt to tear down Brunner’s success to deceive voters and hide from their own disastrous and failed records as career politicians.”
