A right-leaning advocacy group launched an ad campaign Tuesday to coincide with President Donald Trump's push for tax reform.

The American Action Network (AAN) ad features a Wisconsin couple, Jim and Lindsay Pratt. The spot will run in 23 congressional districts — a list that includes the areas represented by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., House Freedom Caucus leaders such as Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and several Republicans who face tight re-election campaigns next year.

"America's tax code is too complicated, so a little tax relief from Congress with a simpler, fairer tax code gives working families like ours peace of mind," Jim Pratt said in the ad. "Closing tax loopholes ensures everyone pays their fair share."

Said Lindsay Pratt, "And real tax cuts will mean more control when we're paying bills and saving for college and retirement."

AAN is spending $2.5 million on the ad campaign, according to a press release.

"Hard-working families and small businesses know far too well the burden the current tax code places on them," AAN executive director Corry Bliss said.

"Working families have had to stretch their paychecks to make ends meet for long enough, it's time for Congress to do their part and make our tax code simpler, fairer, and with lower rates."

Trump is reported to have an aggressive travel schedule planned that could take him to 13 states in seven weeks as he tries to sell his plans to overhaul the nation's tax code.
