45Committee Running Ads Urging Senate Dems to Confirm Pompeo

A pro-Trump group is running ads this week urging Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) – two vulnerable Democratic incumbents up for reelection in 2018 – to vote to confirm Mike Pompeo as secretary of state.

Politico‘s Playbook had the news:

— 45Committee, the pro-Trump issue advocacy group, launched an effort to help Mike Pompeo’s Secretary of State nomination on Thursday. The effort, a “high six-figure plan” according to the group, includes TV, digital and grassroots in several states. 45Committee’s effort started in North Dakota, with phone calls and an ad called “Qualified.” (https://youtu.be/IluAcvsa_Gs).

After Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) announced her “yes” vote for Pompeo, 45Committee cancelled the TV buy in her state. The ads in Indiana and West Virginia begin airing today – the ad targeting Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), “Bipartisan”: https://youtu.be/rQxGGoaBoOUand Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), “Right Man”: https://youtu.be/BrJJsJLevJE

Here’s the ad against Donnelly:

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) announced she’s supporting Pompeo on Thursday, meaning Trump’s team needs only one more Democratic vote to assure likely confirmation for Pompeo.
