The super PAC’s extra $1.5 million brings the total investment in the race to $7.5 million to help Republican Blake Masters in his hopes to unseat Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly (AZ). Sentinel Action Fund previously spent $5 million on ads against Kelly.
The ad emphasizes the recent Senate debate between the two candidates, where Kelly claimed to have “been strong on border security” and stood up to his own party when “when they are wrong on this issue.”
However, the ad says, “that’s a lie” because he’s “voted against more border patrol [and] against drug detection equipment.” It also noted that Kelly votes with the president 94 percent of the time.
Sentinel Action Fund has been one of the active conservative-leaning groups backing Masters in the race.
