Some Republicans running for the Senate are facing some bad news, and it’s coming from their own party. The National Republican Senatorial Committee is yanking some of the money from a few of their candidates advertising funds. Ouch! This, I’m sure, is NOT what these Republicans want to hear.
The three candidates in question are: Mehmet Oz of Pennsylvania. Blake Masters of Arizona. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. That’s right. Funds are being yanked from the states of Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Altogether, $19 million in ad money is being pulled.
The candidate losing the most money is Mehmet Oz. The GOP is pulling a stunning $5 million in that race. I’m sure the New Jersey candidate is not smiling right now as he should not. This is very bad news for Mehmet.
The group’s Communications director stressed “nothing has changed,” and they’re still invested in all three of these races, but this cannot be welcome news for any of the three campaigns. None of these three have done well in the polls, so that is likely one reason for the shrinking of funds.
Mehmet Oz, in particular, is floundering, with not one poll to date showing him ahead or even near his challenger John Fetterman. Of course, we cannot lose focus. These races will still be close. If anyone, this news should motivate us to put MORE work in and donate more. Because all of these races are very much winnable for our team, and it appears the GOP agrees.
