The “national” gun control group is targeting just one race.
Via the Washington Free Beacon:
The gun control group founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D., Ariz.) has outspent the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee to aid New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan’s campaign.
The group, Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), was created with the goal of “engaging millions of people about ways to reduce gun violence and supporting lawmakers willing to take a stand for responsible policies,” according to its website. Its election records show that it has directed its fire against just one candidate at the federal level: Hassan’s opponent, freshman Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R.).
ARS has spent more than $2.8 million in attack ads against Ayotte, according to the Federal Election Commission. The group’s super PAC is the fifth largest independent spender in the state and has outspent the Democratic Party’s official campaign committee by $100,000. It has only ramped up its attacks in the closing days of one of the nation’s most competitive races—one that could determine Senate control in 2017. The group has spent more than $1 million on ad buys since September 29.
