GOP Senate Nonprofit Launches Obamacare Repeal Radio Ads
A major Republican nonprofit is rolling out radio ads in 10 states, pressuring senators to support the repeal and replacement of Obamacare just as a bill starts working its way through the House of Representatives.
One Nation, which is controlled by allies of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, is airing the ads as the second half of a $3 million ad buy aiming to build support for the politically explosive repeal of the health law. The group has already aired television ads in nine states and is also spending money on digital, print and direct mail.
The ads began on Monday, two days before House Republicans are set to start marking up their bill to repeal the law, which would fulfill a major and longstanding GOP campaign promise—but also could lead to the loss of health insurance coverage for some Americans who have gotten it in recent years, which would be a big political liability.
