CatholicVote announced they will spend an additional $2 million in the final 10-day stretch before the midterm elections to turn out Catholic voters in key Senate and House races nationwide. The campaign is aimed at persuading and mobilizing mass-attending Catholics by focusing on rights of parents that have come under threat by Democratic lawmakers.

The campaign will include television, radio, digital, and printed mailers to reach nearly 1 million mass-attending Catholic voters in key states, including the Ohio, Arizona, and Nevada Senate races, along with House races in Pennsylvania, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Arizona, Texas and Nevada.

The centerpiece of the campaign is a new television and digital ad titled “Can You Trust Them?” which asks voters if they can trust candidates that seek to block the role of parents in children’s decisions over gender and abortion. The ads condemn Mark Kelly in Arizona, Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada, and Tim Ryan in Ohio – all Catholics – for their support of gender transition procedures and abortions for minors without parental consent. The ads will run in both English and Spanish in Nevada. This comes as the popularity of nation’s second Catholic president is tanking among Catholics. Similar ads will also air in select states with key House races.

“Catholic voters have the right to know where candidates stand on the issue of parental rights,” said Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote. “Democratic candidates including Kelly, Cortez Masto, and Ryan are actively working to exclude parents from some of the most important decisions affecting their children. They label themselves Catholic but support policies contrary to parents’ wishes, good medicine, and their own church’s teaching. The fact that these so-called Catholic politicians want to ban parents from having a say in these difficult decisions is disgraceful.”

Recent polling shows that 70 percent of registered voters strongly or somewhat oppose instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in elementary school, including 65% of Hispanics. Meanwhile, only 10% of Americans approve of the Democratic position supporting abortion up until birth, and 87% of Catholics want to see limits on the procedure. Sixty-four percent of voters believe parents should be notified before an abortion is performed on a minor.
