Conservative Group Ups Spending to $2.6M Against Landrieu
Posted at 10:58 a.m. on Feb. 12
Americans for Prosperity, a conservative outside group backed by Charles and David Koch, launched yet another stinging TV ad Wednesday against Sen. Mary L. Landrieu.
It’s the group’s latest ad targeting the Louisiana Democrat on President Barack Obama’s health care law. The group spent $750,000 on its latest three-week flight and has now spent $2.6 million in the state so far this cycle, according to AFP spokesman Levi Russell.
“Dear Miss Davis, we can no longer offer you the same policy,” one announcer says in a series of supposed notices sent by insurance companies. “Your doctor is no longer in the network, due to the Affordable Care Act.”
Watch “Mailbox” here:
Landrieu is one of a handful of vulnerable Senate Democrats facing attacks over Obamacare. The messaging is expected to continue through November, as Republicans push to win the net six seats needed for Senate control.
The race is rated a Tossup by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
