Republican super PAC attempts to tie Lee to Pelosi in swing congressional race
Focus: Susie Lee, the Democratic candidate in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District
Who’s paying for it: Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC with ties to House Speaker Paul Ryan
Size of buy: Part of CLF’s ongoing $2.5 million buy in Nevada
When it starts: Oct. 1

The gist: The 30-second spot, titled “Scam,” tries to tie Lee to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi by calling the two “liberal” and “out of touch” millionaires, citing Pelosi’s net worth as up to $200 million and the 17 homes and private plane that Lee and her husband, casino executive Dan Lee, own. The ad also highlights criticism from the two women over the recently passed tax reform bill, with Pelosi calling it “crumbs” and Lee calling it a “scam.”
