Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander (D) launched his first attack ad against Sen. Roy Blunt (R), criticizing the Republican for conflicts of interest. The ad is part of a six-figure buy made in conjunction with the DSCC.

A narrator asks, “Is Washington working for your family?” Then answers that it’s working for the Blunts, labeling every member of his immediate family as a lobbyist. The ad closes with a clip of Blunt being asked whether those connections are a conflict, to which he responds: “I don’t even understand why that would be a question.” (release)
