独家 – Two top pro-Republican super PACs are taking to the airwaves on Tuesday with their first ads in Georgia‘s twin 参议院径流选举, which will determine whether the GOP holds on to its majority in 参议院 or if Democrats will control both houses of Congress in addition to the White House.
The spots by the Senate Leadership Fund, the top outside group backing Senate Republicans, and by its allied group American Crossroads, take aim at Jon Ossoff, the Democratic challenger to GOP Sen. 大卫·珀杜（David Perdue）, and at Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who’s facing off against appointed Republican Sen. 凯莉·洛夫勒（Kelly Loeffler）. The spots were shared first with Fox News.
The two groups combined are spending $ 9 million to air the commercials, which start running the day before the top pro-Senate Democratic outside group, the Senate Majority PAC, launches its own ads blasting Perdue and Loeffler. The spots charge that the far left is bankrolling both Democratic candidates to advance their “radical” agenda.
的 ad by the Senate Leadership Fund accuses Ossoff of “hiding cash from Chinese communists and terrorist sympathizers.” During debates earlier this autumn, Perdue pushed Ossoff to answer questions on payments for documentary work that were made to him by a media company partially owned by the Chinese government.
的 commercial by American Crossroads calls Warnock “a radical who compared police officers to gangsters, thugs and bullies.”
Senate Majority PAC announced on Tuesday that it’s launching two new groups – Georgia Honor and The Georgia Way – which will start running spots that charge that Perdue 和 Loeffler profited off the coronavirus pandemic when it first swept the nation earlier this year – and claiming that both senators blocked COVID-19 relief aid that would help the state’s suffering small businesses and workers.
The group says it will spend $ 4.5 million to run TV commercials and an additional $ 500,000 to go up with digital ads, starting on Wednesday.
“Georgia’s Republican ticket is made up of a pair of corrupt, out-of-touch politicians who profited off of the pandemic and can’t be trusted in Washington,” charged Senate Majority PAC president J.B. Poersch.
