Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action are launching digital ads accusing state Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) of “fighting to let insurers deny health care to 2.5 million Missourians with pre-existing conditions."

“The new ads come as part of Priorities and SMP’s previously announced $950,000 campaign. … The ads will continue to run on online platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, Spotify and Google.” (release)

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) is also running a digital ad calling out Hawley's support for the plaintiffs in King v. Burwell that would similarly have ended protections for those with pre-existing conditions.

Women Vote!, the super PAC for EMILY’s List, added $1.9 million to the Senate Majority PAC TV ad against Hawley using a similar line of attack. (Hotline reporting)

One Nation launched a $1.5 million ad buy on broadcast and cable TV, radio, and digital that says Hawley is "working to catch and prosecute sexual predators" by reducing the rape-kit test backlog. (release)
