New NRCC Ad Says ‘Nevada Can’t Afford Dina Titus’

The National Republican Congressional Commitee is up with a new $384,000 ad buy in NV-3:

The NRCC has spent nearly $7 million on television ads targeting vulnerable House Democrats in more than 50 districts this past week.

According to Hotline, the ad buys are significant because this is the last week the NRCC will dominate the airwaves. The DCCC has apparently reserved ad time aplenty in the final two weeks of the campaign season.

In addition to this large buy in NV-3, the NRCC spent big in Rep. Betsy Markey’s (D) CO-04 race, airing $417K worth of ads, as well as putting $346K into targeting Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH).

This ... Read More

‘The Warning Lights Are Blinking Red Again’

One of President Trump’s outstanding appointments has been Dan Coats, his director of national intelligence. Coats is a former House member, former senator, and former ambassador to Germany.
