SaveMyCare, an independent pro-Democratic group, has purchased a half-million dollars of spots in 24 districts where Hillary Clinton won at least 45 percent of the vote last year. Several of the targeted members represent districts won by Clinton, including Reps. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), Peter J. Roskam (R-Ill.) and Pete Sessions (R-Tex.).
In its unexpectedly troubled life, the AHCA has mostly found allies, not enemies, in the ad wars. For months, the American Action Network plowed millions of dollars into ads encouraging voters to thank their members for supporting an unspecified bill that would “fix” the health-care system. Many of the Republicans intended to be bucked up by the ads, like Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) and Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), ended up rejecting the bill.
