Senate Conservatives Fund Ad Slams McConnell For Shutdown-Ending Deal (VIDEO)

Senate Conservatives Action, the super PAC connected to the Senate Conservatives Fund, is out with a new ad hitting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for making a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to re-open the federal government and lift the debt ceiling.

The ad attacks McConnell for agreeing to the deal when it did not include defunding Obamacare (a point Senate Conservatives Fund has attacked McConnell on numerous times before).

“Conservatives asked Mitch McConnell to lead the fight against Obamacare. He didn’t listen,” the voiceover in the ad, titled Kentucky, said. “Instead, McConnell helped Barack Obama and Harry Reid fund Obamacare. Now Kentucky families are paying the price. Premiums up, lost coverage, even lost jobs. When Kentucky needed Mitch McConnell the most, he let us down.”

The $330,000 ad buy is set to run statewide on broadcast and cable television from Oct. 30 to November 12.

In a tweet, National Republican Senatorial Committee Communications Director Brad Dayspring called the ad one of the “dumbest” of the election cycle.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
