LAS VEGAS (AP) — At least seven new ads are up on Nevada airwaves this week in the state’s high-stakes U.S. Senate race.
The newest include a spot released Wednesday by Freedom Partners Action Fund, which is linked to the billionaire Koch brothers. It makes a similar argument as one of the group’s older ads that Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto didn’t do enough to prevent private guardians from abusing seniors.
The former Nevada attorney general says she helped shape a bill offering solutions that was introduced after she left office.
Meanwhile, the Harry Reid-linked Senate Majority PAC released an ad Tuesday dramatizing Republican Rep. Joe Heck answering calls from the Koch brothers on an iPhone and suggesting he does their bidding.
Heck’s camp says such arguments are hypocritical because huge PACs also support Democrats.
