GOP governors PAC hits at Sisolak on property taxes

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.”

Senator Jacky Rosen

Heller reiterates attack that Rosen has accomplished 'nothing' in ad featuring abandoned office

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.

New Ford ad focuses on family, personal history

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.

New ad from GOP governors PAC paints Sisolak as ‘dangerous’ on health care

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.

Ad gives false impression that Hardy was indicted

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.
