A Democratic-supporting Super PAC best known for involvement in West Virginia’s Senate race is running a series of last-minute digital ads attacking Republican Sen. Dean Heller from the right, citing his previous opposition to President Donald Trump and accusing him of voting against additional border security funding.
The ad is a collection of previous attacks made on Sisolak regarding his stances on taxes. In particular, the ad targets a statement Sisolak made to supporters earlier this year where he said, “one of the ways we’re going to have to pay for it, and people don’t want to hear it, is property taxes.”
The spot, which largely reiterates a line of attack from previous Heller ads that Rosen has accomplished “nothing” during her first term in the House, features an empty, abandoned office with stacks of papers, empty paper trays and crumpled pieces of paper strewn about, a rat chewing on what appears to be a piece of paper and a voice calling out “Rosen” repeatedly as a phone rings in the background unanswered.
This new 30-second ad features Laxalt’s wife, Jaime, who says, “I’m sure glad this race is almost over.” She lists some of her husband’s accomplishments as attorney general, including working “with both parties to fix the rape kit problem that others had ignored.”
The 30-second spot highlights Ford’s wife, Berna, and three children, Alexander, Aaron and Avery, who proudly tout their dad’s accomplishments including his five diplomas and a law degree, and sponsoring bills to “protect kids and seniors” in the state Senate.
This new 30-second ad attempts to tie Rosen to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, saying that supporting the freshman Democrat for Senate would mean “importing Nancy Pelosi’s California liberal agenda” to Nevada.
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.”
Gov. Brian Sandoval, a well-liked moderate, stars in his second 30-second campaign commercial for Heller, titled “What Matters,” in an attempt to boost the Republican senator’s support among moderates and nonpartisans.
The 30-second spot attacks Sisolak’s support of a single-payer health-care system, or systems where taxes fund essential health-care services such as in Canada or the U.K. It first calls the proposal a “massive federal takeover of our health-care system” before showing footage of Sisolak telling supporters “yeah” when asked if he backed single-payer.
The ad might lead readers to believe Hardy was indicted, but it was actually former Virgin Valley Water District general manager Mike Winters who faced one count of misconduct by a public officer. Hardy, a former member of the water district’s board, was not charged.
