The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) on Thursday announced a $2.5 million ad reservation in Nevada's 3rd District, releasing a TV and digital spot hitting Democratic House hopeful Susie Lee over her personal wealth.

"Susie Lee is rich. Really rich. Lee has 17 homes and flies around the world in a private plane," a narrator says in the ad. "Susie Lee got even richer investing in companies that outsource American jobs."
