The NRSC is running digital ads that link the 10 Trump-state Democrats to Hillary Clinton’s controversial comments in India. The spots, which show Clinton saying that Trump’s campaign was “looking backwards,” will appear on Facebook over the two-week recess. The NRSC declined to reveal the size of the buy.

SPENDING BILL AFTERMATH. “Democrats running for reelection in pro-Trump states are touting bipartisan accomplishments in the $1.3 trillion package after having few legislative victories to claim under President Trump amid a congressional calendar dominated by GOP pushes on health care and taxes.”

For example, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) “is highlighting his work to add a provision to the bill known as Jessie’s Law to give doctors more information about patients’ previous opioid addictions before they prescribe medicine.” Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) is “hailing his effort to include $249 million in the bill for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s pre-disaster mitigation program.” Meanwhile, Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) “is talking about the $4 billion in the bill to fund prevention, treatment and recovery programs in Indiana and other states hit hard by the opioid epidemic.” (The Hill)
