Kwasman Makes the Colbert Report, Launches Ad Buy

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2014 at 9:09 AM

State Rep. Adam Kwasman, who made himself a national laughingstock earlier this week when he mistook a bus of YMCA children with, as he put it, "fear on their faces" for a bus of Central American undocumented migrants, reached the top last night when Steven Colbert used him as the final punchline during a segment on the current border crisis.

The timing couldn't be better: Kwasman's new elevated name ID comes as he launches a $35,000 TV ad buy in CD1.

Kwasman's new ad, which features his opposition to Common Core learning standards and the expansion of health-insurance coverage to Arizona's low-income residents as well as his endorsement by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, appears below the jump.
