Republicans are launching a full-court press against the congressional Democrats’ wide ranging election and campaign finance reform bill.
“It’s political corruption,” the announcer charges in a new commercial that is part of a major ad blitz by the National Republican Senatorial Committee starting Monday. “Stop the grab. Stop the fraud.”
The Senate GOP reelection arm is spending seven figures to run the spots in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and New Hampshire, four states they hope to flip from blue to red in the 2022 midterms, when Republicans will aim to win back the majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
The bill ‒ formally known as the “For the People Act,” or as H.R.1 in the House and S.1 in the Senate ‒ passed the Democratic-controlled House earlier this month along party lines.
