House Republican Super PAC Launches Ad for 2018 Midterm Elections

Nine days before Donald Trump is inaugurated president, the House Republicans’ super PAC is launching the first TV advertising aimed at the 2018 midterm elections. 

The $1.2 million ad campaign, funded by the American Action Network, is focused on the GOP effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Set to air in 15 congressional districts, it serves as the first indication of which Republicans the party considers vulnerable when they next face re-election. 

The 30-second advertisement is due to begin airing Thursday. In it, an announcer offers a wishful-thinking version of the GOP position on repealing and replacing President Barack Obama‘s health care law. 

 Without mentioning the ACA or Obamacare by name, the ad’s narrator calls for “health insurance that provide(s) more choices and better care, at lower costs” and  “peace of mind to people with preexisting conditions.” The ad concludes: “House Republicans have a plan to get there without disrupting existing coverage, giving your family the health care it deserves.”

At its conclusion, the ad shows a web address abetterhealthcareplan.com. The website directs to a page at which the American Action Network requests contact information. No health care plan is available there.
