WASHINGTON — The Young Guns Network Wednesday announced a $500,000 last minute ad push to back the “next generation” of conservative lawmakers, including a number of female Republicans across the country.
YG Network, an outside group run by two former aides to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, is one of a host of organizations and SuperPACs that have been pouring millions of dollars into advertising in the waning days of the election, inundating the airwaves with political pitches and attacks.
According to the group, the ad buy will target Reps. Nan Heyworth and Kristi Noem, as well as challengers Mia Love, Jackie Walorski and Martha McSally through it’s “Women Up!” initiative.
The ads take aim at Democrats’ successful “war on women” argument and attempt to turn it against them.
For instance, in the ad for Heyworth, an announcer says “They keep talking about a ‘war on women’ … but it’s their policies that’ve left young women struggling and working harder for less.”
“In the real ‘war on women,’ we need someone to fight for us. Vote for Nan,” the ad concludes.
A second ad, entitled “We Choose,” aimed to support Republicans in Illinois, Arizona, California, Nevada, New Jersey and Wisconsin urging voters to support the “next generation of conservatives.”
YG Network is also launching a smaller number of radio ads in Wisconsin and Illinois, according to the group.
