The Congressional Leadership Fund (CFL), a group closely aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) released a new 30-second ad Thursday attacking Danny O’Connor, the Democrat running in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, for supporting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

“After lying [for] the whole campaign, Dishonest Danny O’Connor now admits he’d vote for Pelosi,” the ad’s narrator begins.

The ad cuts to a clip from a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in which the MSNBC host asked O’Connor if he would support Pelosi if elected.

“I would support whoever the Democratic Party puts forward,” O’Connor said. Before this interview O’Connor had said he would not support Pelosi if elected.

“Dishonest Danny lied about Pelosi. Now he’s lying about Social Security and Medicare,” the ad’s narrator concludes. “O’Connor supports a Pelosi-backed plan that cuts Medicare spending by eight hundred billion. On August 7th, vote Troy Balderson. He’ll protect Ohio seniors.”

CLF has spent more than $2.6 million backing O’Connor’s Republican opponent, Balderson, in what has become one of the more competitive special elections of the 2018 cycle.
