A mother used in an attack ad against a Kansas Democratic congressional candidate is a top GOP official in the state. 

In the advertisement, which comes from a super PAC linked to House Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanCPAC, all-in for Trump, is not what it used to be Cruz hires Trump campaign press aide as communications director Bottom line MORE (R-Wis.), Alana Roethle says she opposes Democratic House candidate Sharice Davids, whom she dubs “too risky for Kansas families,” McClatchy reported

“As a mom of four, I care about about keeping our community safe. That’s why I oppose Sharice Davids," Roethle says, before saying that Davids supports an extreme agenda that would include abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

The ad, however, does not disclose that Roethle is the secretary of Kansas's Republican Party. She is also a member of the Kansas Lottery Commission who was appointed to her position in 2015, according to McClatchy.
