EXPANDING THE SENATE MAP, MAJORITY PAC LAUNCHES $8.4 MILLION, NINE-STATE CAMPAIGN

Group Surges Into Republican States, Continues to Support Democratic-Held Seats 

Washington, D.C. [October 17, 2012] – Majority PAC today announced the launch of a $8.4 million, nine-state campaign targeting flawed Republican candidates in races across the country. The buy ensures Majority PAC and its allies will remain on the air in critical battleground states, holding Republicans accountable and fighting back against the millions of dollars in lies from Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers.

The ads, set to air in Arizona, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Virginia, Ohio, Connecticut, and Nevada, will be on the air throughout the week.

Majority PAC has been on the air in critical races all year and building its campaign to engage for a strong push in the final weeks. In recent months, Majority PAC has extended its campaign to seats widely considered to be safe for Republicans at the beginning of the cycle.

The Arizona ad, “Back Home,” slams Jeff Flake’s votes against America’s veterans, and his assault on women’s health through his votes to defund Planned Parenthood and to deny women coverage for breast cancer screenings. “Back Home” is available here with backup available here.

The Indiana ad, “Confrontation,” reminds Indiana voters of Richard Mourdock’s extreme partisan views, including his opposition to the auto rescue, calling Medicare and Social Security unconstitutional, and his support for eliminating the Department of Education. “Confrontation” is a joint buy with Center Forward and is available here with backup available here.

The Missouri ad, “Believes,” highlights Todd Akin’s dangerously out-of-the mainstream views on a number of issues critical to Missouri families, including Social Security, student loans, and sexual assault. “Believes” is available here with backup available here.

The Montana ad, “Ride,” highlights Dennis Rehberg’s votes to raise his own pay five times and his votes to send Social Security funds to Wall Street insiders. “Ride” is available here with backup available here.

The North Dakota ad, “Character,” features North Dakotans questioning with Rick Berg’s Washington priorities. “Character” is available here with backup available here.

The Virginia ad, “Better,” hammers George Allen for his backwards views on health care, including his support for a radical budget plan that would cut Medicare, his support for reduced access to mammograms and cancer screenings, and for letting insurance companies make health care decisions for Virginia families. “Better” is available here, with backup available here.

The Ohio ad, “#1 Job,” slams Josh Mandel for neglecting the duties of his office, for refusing to support the auto industry rescue, and for supporting tax breaks for companies that send jobs overseas. “#1 Job” is available here, with backup available here.

The Connecticut ad, “Pink,” highlights Linda McMahon’s support for an agenda that would eliminate funding for breast cancer screenings, birth control, and Planned Parenthood. “Pink“ is available here with backup available here.

What is Senate Majority PAC?

Senate Majority PAC is fighting to protect and expand the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate. In 2012, Karl Rove and his friends spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to buy the Senate. We ran low-overhead, high-impact campaigns to stop him—and we won. Now we’re ready to take on Mitch McConnell and his radical Republican caucus in 2014.
