The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is going on offense ahead of competitive 2018 midterms.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) will target 10 Democratic senators with digital ads on single-payer health care this summer, Politico‘s Morning Score reported on Wednesday.
An example of the ads, above, ties vulnerable Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on single-payer health care.
Morning Score also reported that the ads “are backed by significant statewide buys, and will run throughout recess and the rest of July.”
The NRSC may have telegraphed their move with a tweet last week that blasted Warren for her move to single-payer health care:

Support for single-payer may become the next Democratic litmus test for 2018 and 2020. More than half (52 percent) of all Democrats support a “single national government program” for health care, according to a June poll from the Pew Research Center.
A Bernie Sanders proposal for single-payer from 2016 would cost $32 trillion over 10 years, according to The Health Policy Center, a D.C. think tank.
