Conservative Group Ups Spending to $2.6M Against Landrieu

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.

    Not only has Landrieu voted to destroy your health insurance, she also consistently votes to destroy your gun rights. She is a typical liberal democrat who is contemptuous of our constitution and the values this country was founded on. Defeat her.

    How is mking healthcare available for millions of people who never had it before destroying it? You baggers are a sick joke. Go back to Baggerville where up is down and own is up. And the only time baggers like you site the constitution is when it suits your purpose. Other than that it’s the hell with it.
