Washington, D.C. – Last week, the NRSC booked more than $2.2 million in new television ads in Arizona and Wisconsin. Dr. Oz’s campaign also launched a new TV ad in Pennsylvania backed by a multi-million-dollar buy from the NRSC.
The Pennsylvania ad is called “Radical Socialist.”
The Wisconsin ad is called “Dangerous.”
Despite inaccurate reporting from multiple media outlets, the NRSC has spent tens of millions of dollars in our target races and will continue to spend to support our Republican candidates and define the Democrats and their radical agenda.
FIRST ON FOX – The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Friday is releasing new ads in Wisconsin and Arizona for a total of more than $2.2 million in spending days after other canceled ads led to media stories about alleged fundraising issues.
Now the group is releasing digital and televisions spots on which it’s spending a significant chunk of the money that would have gone to the canceled ads.
The ad in Wisconsin criticizes Democratic nominee Mandela Barnes over the issue of cash bail, comparing his stance on the issue to those of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.
It calls Barnes, “a dangerous Democrat.” The NRSC is spending $700,000 for television placement of the ad and $460,000 on digital.
The Arizona ad calls Rep. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., “soft” for not opposing some of the provisions in Democrats’ recent climate, tax and social spending bill.
The NRSC is also pushing a Spanish counterpart ad making the same points, on which it’s spending $123,000. It calls Kelly, “débil en la lucha poor nosotros.”
The group is spending $813,000 placing the English TV version of the ad, and $185,000 on digital.
Separately from its independent expenditures in Arizona and Wisconsin, the NRSC also has a hybrid ad buy coordinated with the Mehmet Oz Senate campaign starting in Pennsylvania Friday.
