The YG Action Fund, a super PAC affiliated with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is on the radio in North Carolina’s 8th district with an ad backing former Hill staffer Richard Hudson.
The spot, backed by a $53,000 buy, is the second independent expenditure the super PAC has made on behalf of Hudson. On April 24, the group spent $22,750 on mailers supporting the candidate, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
“Richard Hudson will cut out-of-control government spending — starting with repealing and replacing Obamacare,” a narrator says in the spot. “Hudson will fight for tax relief for our families and businesses: He’ll protect North Carolina jobs.”
Hudson, the frontrunner, is locked in a competitive race with four other GOP contenders, including dentist Scott Keadle, who is backed by the powerful pro-free-market group the Club for Growth.
