The gist: The ad centers on Horsford’s grandmother, who, the ad says, spent nearly 30 years in assisted living following a stroke — care the ad says was financially supported by Social Security and Medicaid. Horsford goes on to tie his Republican opponent Cresent Hardy to GOP efforts from June of this year to cut entitlement programs, such as Social Security, as part of a broader budget deal that likely won’t be fully considered until after the midterm elections.
