The Club for Growth released a digital ad on Wednesday calling Air Force veteran Troy Downing (R) “shady” for his management of a California investment company in which owners were convicted of running a Ponzi scheme. (release)

A spokeswoman said the ad was “part of our several hundred thousand in digital spending on this race,” which until now had focused on praising state Auditor Matt Rosendale (R) and attacking District Judge Russ Fagg (R). (Hotline reporting)

“As of Wednesday, Club for Growth Action had spent about $1.6 million on the race. The fact that the club keeps spending is evidence to some GOP observers that Rosendale may not be as much of a shoe-in as conventional wisdom would suggest.” (Roll Call)

Restoration PAC also placed a $15,000 digital ad buy supporting Rosendale. (ProPublica) A spokesman said the money extends its previous ad buy. (Hotline reporting)

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Rosendale on Wednesday. (release)
