American Bridge, a Democratic super PAC, launched a Valentine’s Day campaign Tuesday, hitting certain Republicans for their “complicated” relationship status with President Trump.
The Facebook ad buy targets 10 Republicans across the country running in Senate, House, and gubernatorial races. The “Who Loves Trump” campaign will run all week highlighting Republican candidates “full-blown love affairs to bromances and more, uh...complicated romances,” the group said.
The ads capture some lawmakers changing attitudes toward the president. The one slamming Heller uses an interview during the campaign in which the Nevada Republican said he was 90 percent sure he wasn’t going to vote for Trump.
“It’s complicated,” the ad states before playing footage of Heller saying his job is to work with the president.
"Whether they're smitten with President Trump, or their relationship is on-again-off-again, one thing is certain: Republicans across the country will pay for supporting this President's dangerous, racist, and job-killing policies at the polls in 2018," said American Bridge spokesman Joshua Karp. "Trump is now the standard bearer of the Republican Party, so — for better or for much worse — he's all theirs."
American Bridge also takes aim at Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo. and Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., in the ad buy. Barletta is challenging Democratic Sen. Bob Casey in Pennsylvania.
