Biofuels group launches six-figure ad buy across 3 states

Biofuel advocate Fuels America is launching a six-figure campaign in Minnesota, Michigan, and Nebraska.

On Tuesday, the group announced the ad buys across the three states in support of four lawmakers who are facing reelection.

Fuels America attacks the conservative Charles and David Koch in the ad for Peters, which touts the Democrats support of renewable fuels.

“Peters wants to break our risky addiction to foreign oil but big oil is fighting back,” the 60-second radio ad states. “The Koch brothers are spending millions attacking him because Peters want to put money in our pockets and less in big oils.”
