More Aaron Bean coming on Jax TV thanks to PAC

American Dream Federal Action, a pro-cryptocurrency PAC, also jumped in.

Large-dollar independent expenditures in the Republican Primary for Florida’s 4th Congressional District are keeping Sen. Aaron Bean’s name and face in front of voters, despite recent polling that shows him trouncing opponents Erik Aguilar and Jon Chuba.

Keep Florida Red PAC reported to the Federal Election Commission this week three independent expenditures — the largest amount spent in late July, nearly $292,900 to SRCP Media of Alexandria, Virginia, for media placement. The PAC dropped another $7,119 Tuesday for the same. A new ad for the PAC went up the same day.

Nearly $43,900 went to the ad “Inflation into Recession,” according to AdImpact data, with 2.2 million impressions from adults 35 years old and older, and 117 airings as of 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Joe Biden’s inflation is turning into Joe Biden’s recession,” the ad begins, with red letters over grayscale images of Biden and stock footage of a business closing.

The video then transitions to shots of Bean, in full color, talking with people at places of business.

“Enough is enough. Conservative Aaron Bean has a plan to stop Biden’s reckless policies,” the voiceover continues.

“Bean will stop Biden’s inflation and lower gas prices, putting more money in our pockets. And, Bean will never raise our taxes. Bean will crack down on illegal immigration, and always defend our police. Stop Joe Biden. Conservative Aaron Bean, for Congress.” 

Keep Florida Red also placed more than $32,400 on Aug. 4 with Storytellers Group of Tennessee for printing and postage for mail pieces.

American Dream Federal Action, a pro-cryptocurrency PAC, also jumped in with some pre-Primary spending, placing more than $39,700 on Aug. 4 with Franklin Creative Group of Colorado for printing and postage for pro-Bean mail pieces in the district.

    This is interesting- I live in Clay County and everyone I know is sick of Bean…. They know his corruption and know that this PAC is really the money that him and Sen. Bradley have saved up.

    If he was up in that poll he would not spend his money. This is politics 101. He is in bad shape and he knows. You wonder how much He pays Florida Politics and Peter to write these things.

      The corruption Florida Politics isn’t talking about because they are also part of it? This failed online media source is loving the money they are getting from Bean. MAJORLY SHOWING THEY LOVE AARON BEAN….I HOPE THAT DOOFUS LOSES TOMORROW AND FLORIDA POLITICS GETS SHUT DOWN.

    Maybe this means he is loosing and the poll is wrong? Why would he spend his money if he is winning by 40% ?

  • Aaron Bean is A RINO

    Lol Florida politics is getting comical at this point. Who cares if 2.2 million voters watched it. Most of those people can’t vote for him anyways. What’s your point of this article florida politics? To continuously show you support Aaron Bean and are completely biased against any other candidate? It’s becoming extremely obvious.

    I read on Facebook that “Keep Florida Red PAC” is actually Aaron Beans’s state money?

    Like in Breaking Bad when they launder money- that is what they are doing.

    Will the author comment on that and maybe say who funded Keep Florida Red Pac? Probably not- because Bean pays Florida Politics.

    Bean supports the ACLU. He supports the Nassau racial equality coalition. He is a Rino.

    Bean has a plan for curbing inflation? Come ON! That clown hasn’t got a CLUE what to do about inflation…or immigration…or health care…NOTHING.

    He’ll kiss Leader McCarthy’s butt with the same sloppy enthusiasm he devoted to Ron DeSantis’ and Rick Scott’s backsides in Tallahassee.

    Aron Bean is an overgrown beard atop an empty suit. Total zero.
