Duty and Honor, a Democratic political nonprofit, placed its first TV ad buy of the race on Monday.

Spokesman Mike Plante, a Charleston-based Democratic consultant, said Tuesday the group was a 501(c)4 and that the spot would show Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D) “true, accurate voting record” and “define” state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) “for being a lobbyist from New Jersey.”

Public records indicate the ad was slated to run Tuesday through next Monday on WSAZ at a cost of $50,000, but Plante said the ad was placed on other stations as well.

The group shares multiple ties with the similarly-named Duty and Country, a Democratic super PAC that ran TV ads against Rep. Evan Jenkins (R) in the primary. The groups share a treasurer (former U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin (D), who ran for governor in 2016) as well as an address at Perkins Coie, a Democratic law firm used by Senate Majority PAC. Plante is also a spokesman for both groups. (Hotline reporting)
