GOP Group Drops New Ads in Five States Key to U.S. Senate Control

The Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), a GOP group allied with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), is releasing five new television ads in states that will help decide control of the U.S. Senate this November.

First reported in Politico‘s Playbook, the ads will air in Indiana, Missouri, Nevada, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Republicans are playing offense in three of those states – seeking to unseat Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), and Joe Manchin (D-WV) – playing defense in one state (Nevada, for Republican Sen. Dean Heller), and seeking to retain control of Tennessee’s U.S. Senate seat.

All five ads go after the Democrats in those races, as Playbook reported:

FIRST IN PLAYBOOK: THE SENATE LEADERSHIP FUND is launching a $7 million ad blitz on TV, cable and digital across five states. The ads hit incumbent Sens. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.). They also are targeting challengers Jacky Rosen in Nevada and Phil Bredesen in Tennessee. SLF has spent $30 million this cycle. Its affiliated issue advocacy group One Nation has spent $40 million.

The Indiana ad targets Donnelly’s attendance record at Aging Committee hearings:

The Missouri ad goes after McCaskill’s use of a private plane and her support for a “national energy tax”:

The Nevada ad highlights Rep. Jacky Rosen’s (D-NV) vote against Kate’s Law:

The Tennessee ad points out former Gov. Phil Bredesen (D-TN) used to support single-payer health care:

And the West Virginia ad attacks Manchin’s positions on gun rights and immigration:
