Liberal super PAC launches $700K ad attacking Montana senator

(CNN)A liberal super PAC set up to help Democrats take back the Senate will spend $700,000 on a new ad to attack Sen. Steve Daines, a Montana Republican, sending another signal that Democrats are expanding the map to compete in even deep-red states as they try to flip the Senate in 2020.


Senate Majority PAC told CNN it will begin airing the 30-second television ad in Montana on Saturday, alleging that Daines cares more about corporations than his constituents during the coronavirus pandemic. Daines faces Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock, who won reelection in 2016 even as Donald Trump swept the state by more than 20 points.
The ad begins with a narrator saying, “maybe you’re worried about your job or where your retirement went after the crash,” before claiming that “Daines worries about corporate profits instead.”
