GOP candidates Jason Church and Tom Tiffany are both being hit with new negative TV ads as their primary for the 7th CD heads into the final days.
Club for Growth Action, which is backing Tiffany in the race, is knocking Church for donating to the campaign of Dem Max Rosen, who won a House seat in 2018.
Meanwhile, Americans 4 Security PAC is hitting Tiffany as a career politician who previously opposed President Trump.
Both candidates have sought to link themselves to the president in the race.
Club for Growth Action filed new reports with the FEC this week showing it spent $157,600 on a TV buy and another $14,112 on radio. The group said it is adding more behind the new TV ad and the radio spot includes a similar message.
Meanwhile, Americans 4 Security PAC is spending $135,000 on its spot, which also praises Church.
The narrator says Church is a “combat veteran that will have President Trump’s back” and has been with him since “day one.” But the narrator says Tiffany is a career politician who opposed Trump, while his “big-money backers” spent millions trying to stop the president.
“We just can’t trust a Madison insider to clean up the swamp,” the narrator says.
The Club for Growth Action ad focuses on Church’s donation to Rosen, who the spot notes voted to impeach Trump. The narrator says Rosen sides with Nancy Pelosi 96 percent of the time.
“Church served our country well,” the narrator says. “But if he backed a liberal for Congress, can you count on him to serve you in Washington?”
