WASHINGTON ― The Koch brothers-backed super PAC is adding to its TV spending over the final two weeks leading up to the midterm elections, dropping an additional $6.5 million into six competitive U.S. Senate races.
Each 30-second ad begins with a few bullet-point criticisms of the Democratic candidate in that particular state ― often delivered by a female voter ― but all of the ads end similarly: linking the Democratic candidate to President Obama.
“A vote for Mark Begich is a vote for President Obama and his failed policies,” the Alaska ad says.
FPAF spokesman James Davis said in a statement that the ads are premised on the belief that "voters feel a country spinning out of control and see a government that is not acting responsibly."
Freedom Partners Action Fund has already spent almost $15 million during this election cycle in ads for Republicans and against Democrats. However, the additional $6.5 million being spent now is buying less airtime because higher rates are charged as the election date draws near.
