The digital ads will appear in two 2018 battleground states.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is launching a Facebook ad campaign in the two 2018 battleground states of Nevada and North Dakota, according to a report from The Washington Times.
The NRSC is targeting incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), who is challenging Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), with the “two month-long digital ad buys:”
The [North Dakota] ad will direct voters to sign a petition telling Ms. Heitkamp to represent the people of her state rather than special interests. Ms. Heitkamp narrowly won North Dakota in 2012 and Republicans are hoping to use her anti-Trump stance against her in a state where the president took 63 percent of the vote.
Out West, however, Republicans are playing defense and using a reliable strategy to sink Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen, who announced her plans to challenge incumbent Republican Sen. Dean Heller earlier this year. The new adties Ms. Rosen to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. This ad also directs voters to a similar petition urging Ms. Rosen to represent Nevadans.
National Republican organizations have successfully used Pelosi as an anchor on other candidates such as Georgia’s Jon Ossoff. The Rosen connection to the House minority leader is a part of a broader strategy by GOP groups, playing off of Pelosi’s deep unpopularity across the country.
