House Majority PAC is launching a new ad hitting Rep. Nick Rahall’s (D-W.Va.) Republican opponent for his support from the billionaire Koch brothers.
“The Koch brothers wouldn’t be billionaires if they didn’t get what they paid for,” a narrator says in the ad. “In Washington, Evan Jenkins won’t work for us.”
The ad is part of an ongoing barrage of attacks from House Majority PAC on Jenkins in the district, and the group is extending its buy by another $70,000 to air the new ad in the Charleston-Huntington and Bluefield-Beckley markets.
Rahall is a top Republican target this cycle and has taken his own knocks from the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity over the past few months, as well as a recent attack ad from Jenkins that calls Rahall a "lying politician, just like Obama."
