American for Prosperity, the conservative political advocacy group funded by the Koch brothers, announced Wednesday that it is launching the second wave of a major television and digital ad campaign in Missouri and Indiana, “sharing stories from individuals in each state about how tax reform is benefiting them and highlighting U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly (IN) and Claire McCaskill’s (MO) votes against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.”
The group says it will spend nearly $4 million on the ads criticizing Donnelly and McCaskill as part of a previously announced $20 million push to promote the new tax law.
But will it be money well-spent? The late-stage dynamics of the Conor Lamb’s apparent win, or at the very least his strong showing, in Pennsylvania’s special House election Tuesday calls that into question.
