Rural Voices USA is calling on Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to “stop dividing America” ahead of their “America First Tour.”

“Rural Voices USA, the non-partisan network of rural community leaders across America, today purchased a billboard at The Villages, near the site of U.S. Representatives Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘America First’ rally, that calls for unity,” the group said in a press release.

The Florida billboard calls the two representatives by name saying “stop trying to divide us” and “we are all Americans first.”

The group plans to keep putting these billboards up at different stops throughout the representatives’ tour.

“These rallies represent everything that’s wrong with American politics right now,” Board President of Rural Voices USA Christopher Gibbs said. “The reason we have rioters storming the Capitol over false claims of a stolen presidential election is because of the inflammatory rhetoric that will be on full display at tonight’s rally. This will not be reasoned political discussion. It will be grievance, anger and spite.”

Gaetz and Greene have been pushing former President Trump’s election fraud conspiracy theories and have been two of the most controversial members in Congress.
