A group of Afghanistan and Iraq veterans is launching a video ad pushing vulnerable Republican Congressional candidates, including GOP candidate David Young, to refund campaign funding they've received from Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, currently the number three Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Afghanistan veteran Dan McKnight said the group BringOurTroopsHome.US
objects to Cheney's opposition to President Trump's efforts to withdraw U.S. troops from a nearly two-decade old war in Afghanistan.

"Rep. Cheney has repeatedly attacked President Trump and his efforts to bring our troops home from needless and endless wars. We're pushing Republicans not to accept her endorsement or her blood money, and to remove her from GOP leadership."
The video released in Young's district emphasizes, "David Young wants to go to Washington. Maybe this should be his first stop," as it pans images of Arlington National Ceremony.

"David Young took $4,000 from Congresswoman Liz Cheney, who's attacked and blocked President Trump's efforts to bring our troops home from endless wars. Polls show 75 percent of Americans support President Trump's move to bring our troops home NOW. But David Young is taking blood money from Liz Cheney, who keeps sacrificing other people's children on the altar of endless war. Tell David Young to give Liz Cheney her money back. Support President Trump's efforts to bring our troops home."
