The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a new ad today in the Arizona Senate race targeting Democrats Mark Kelly and Joe Biden for selling out to China.
“When it comes to China, Mark Kelly and Joe Biden are one and the same: they’ve turned a blind eye as China stole American jobs and infiltrated American industries with the intention of undermining our economy,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “As long as Kelly remains unapologetic about his lucrative partnerships with communist Chinese investors, he’s complicit in their putting U.S. national security and global security at risk.”
Kelly has faced scrutiny both in Arizona and nationally for investments from a surveillance arm of the Chinese Communist Party in the company he co-founded, World View Enterprises. Boom Technology, a company where Kelly served as an Advisory Board member, has also accepted funds from a state-financed Chinese investor.
Joe Biden: “A rising China is a positive development.”
Narrator: “Joe Biden has spent his career pushing policies that shipped jobs to China.”
Biden: “We’re not trying to slow down Chinese growth.”
Narrator: “And Mark Kelly? After he got back from space, he started selling himself to China. The Chinese try to infiltrate our space business, and Mark Kelly’s company got paid.
“Biden. Kelly. China.”
Biden: “What a beautiful history we wrote together.”
