The Sentinel Action Fund (SAF) announced it is spending $300,000 on broadcast television in Manchester, N.H. from July 17 to 31. While the buy is relatively small, the PAC is a partner organization with Heritage Action for America, which claims a grassroots network of two million activists.
And, says SAF president Jessica Anderson, there is more to come.
“This ad is one of the first of many, and the beginning of a wave of grassroots support in August and September.”
Anderson said Hassan’s seat is viewed as one of the top opportunities for a GOP pick-up in November, along with Sens. Raphael Warnock in Georgia and Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada. The challenge is New Hampshire’s extremely late primary — September 13 — which is keeping resources on the sidelines. But that does not mean conservatives can afford to sit back and let Hassan attempt to rewrite her record.
“Hassan is incredibly vulnerable. Her unfavorables are at 51 percent. But we can’t sit on our hands all summer because of the late primary. We’ve got to deliver a clear message about Hassan’s support for Joe Biden and the Democratic Party’s agenda now.”
