Focus: Danny Tarkanian, the Republican candidate in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, and his Democratic opponent, Susie Lee

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 more than $3 million buy in Nevada

When it starts: Oct. 26

Where it’s running: Las Vegas

The gist: The 30-second spot, titled “Multimillionaire,” begins by praising Tarkanian as a businessman who “supported the middle-class tax cut that helped create four million jobs and drove unemployment to a fifty-year low.” It then criticizes Lee for owning 17 properties and a private plane and says she “joined (House Minority Leader) Nancy Pelosi to oppose your twenty-five hundred dollar tax cut,” pointing to her tweets urging people to call their senators and urge them to vote no on the plan.

“Susie Lee. Nancy Pelosi,” the ad says. “Higher taxes. Lost jobs.”
