(Reno, NV) — A new TV ad is drawing fire in the race for Nevada’s vacant House seat. Democrat Kate Marshall’s spot features footage of Republican Mark Amodei’s 79-year-old mother. An announcer says, “only a mother could defend” Amodei for supporting an end to Medicare. Amodei himself has used his mother in ads accusing Marshall of lying about his record. Early voting began Monday. The special election for the congressional seat left vacant by Dean Heller is September 13th.
