New ad: GOP should 'trust' military leaders on biofuels

“When the Navy says advanced American biofuels make our forces more effective and energy-independent, I trust them,” the veteran, Chris Marzoni, says in the ad against Portman. “That’s why I’m disappointed that some in Congress are trying to stop our military’s biofuels programs. Sen. Portman, I’m a veteran, and I trust our military leaders. Why don’t you?”
The other lawmakers targeted include Reps. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), both members of the House Armed Services Committee, according to Stephanie Dreyer, a Truman Project spokesman. Neither lawmaker is considered vulnerable in November.
