The Hill: GOP Senate campaign arm hits battleground-state Dems over ‘Medicare for All,’ Green New Deal

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is targeting a handful of Democratic incumbents and candidates in five battleground states with a series of billboards zeroing in on “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal climate change plan.

The billboards, images of which were obtained first by The Hill, specifically target Democratic Sens. Gary Peters (Mich.), Tina Smith (Minn.), Doug Jones (Ala.) and Jeanne Shaheed (N.H.), as well as Democrat Mark Kelly, who’s vying for Sen. Martha McSally’s (R) seat in Arizona.

The Detroit News: Peters supports ‘aspects’ of Green New Deal

The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Monday announced it is funding a new billboard along US-24 in Detroit directing residents to “ask Gary Peters” about the Green New Deal, which the group argues will put Michigan auto industry and manufacturing jobs at risk.

“Michigan voters will remember that when given a chance to reject the job-killing Green New Deal, Peters was silent — standing with his party’s most radical members,” NRSC spokesman Nathan Brand said in a statement.
