The campaign says they’ll fly a banner that reads “Socialism will kill Houston’s economy” above the site of Thursday’s third round Democratic primary debate, which is being held in Houston on the campus of the historically black Texas Southern University.
The president, his re-election campaign, and the Republican National Committee have long labeled the proposals being promoted by many of the Democratic White House hopefuls as too extreme and describing them as socialism.
The campaign told Fox News this is the first time they’ve done a flyover at the Democratic primary debates.
But they note they used a similar tactic on Labor Day, flying banners over beachgoers in a number of cities, urging people to add their phone numbers to the campaign’s list of supporters.
Last weekend, the Republican National Committee ran ads on an electronic billboard outside of an arena in Manchester, N.H., where nearly the entire field of Democratic presidential contenders were addressing a state party convention.
