RNC to spend six-figures on ad campaign opposing Democratic-backed election legislation

"Democrats are attempting an egregious power grab through H.R. 1 that will fundamentally alter our entire election system and dismantle the integrity of the vote, but we will not let them get away with it," RNC chair Ronna McDaniel said to Fox News in a statement.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) next week is slated to launch a six-figure advertising campaign seeking to generate public pressure to dissuade Senate Democrats from voting for election legislation that House Democrats passed earlier in March.

"Democrats are attempting an egregious power grab through H.R. 1 that will fundamentally alter our entire election system and dismantle the integrity of the vote, but we will not let them get away with it," RNC chair Ronna McDaniel declared to Fox News in a statement.

The RNC will target voters in four states, seeking to get those voters to push for Democratic Sens. Mark Kelly of Arizona, Raphael Warnock of Georgia, Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire to stand against the legislation.

Fox News reported that: "Among the messages in the digital ads are 'Stop Ballot Trafficking – Radical Democrats are trying to take over our elections! Fight back,' 'The Democrats want to spend your tax dollars to fund liberal candidates' elections. We can't let this happen! Stop them,' and 'Stop H.R. 1 – Democrats are trying to use your hard-earned money to elect radical liberals. Take action.'"

The digital ads will be pushed across various platforms like Facebook, Google Search and local and national news websites, the RNC said.

The RNC says that it will employ "every tool in its arsenal to inform the American people about Democrats’ self-serving legislation." This will include "blanketing the airwaves" by getting local surrogates onto radio and TV broadcasts and highlighting GOP voices on social media platforms.
