Tim Sheehy attack ad

End Citizens United launch anti-Sheehy ad blitz

News: Progressive group End Citizens United is launching a $500,000 digital ad blitz attacking Montana GOP Senate candidate Tim Sheehy as a “rich out-of-stater.”

Democrats are eager to define Sheehy, a political newcomer looking to unseat vulnerable Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), as someone who only looks out for special interests.

One digital ad accuses Sheehy of trying to close off access to public lands. Another ad hits a similar note — painting Sheehy as a “wannabe cowboy” — while following a viral TikTok trend.

Tester is seeking a fourth term in deep-red Montana. He’s fighting against political headwinds with former President Donald Trump on the ballot.

More campaign news: Ohio GOP Senate candidate Bernie Moreno is heading to Israel next month as a show of support for the U.S. ally. Moreno is also using the trip to bash Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), with campaign spokesperson Reagan McCarthy sending us a statement last night accusing Brown of “sid[ing] with Hamas over Israel.”

And in Arizona, Democrat Kirsten Engel’s campaign is launching a microsite taking aim at Rep. Juan Ciscomani’s (R-Ariz.) ties to a Christian group called the Patriot Academy.
