COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Republican U.S. Senate nominee in Ohio is being praised by a conservative group in new ads and mailers.
The Americans for Prosperity organization backed by the wealthy Koch brothers is launching a six-figure nationwide campaign aimed at curbing “wasteful spending” in Congress. Ads target 17 House Republicans and Democrats who voted for this year’s $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill while thanking 13 representatives who opposed it, including Jim Renacci (ruh-NAY’-see).
Renacci won this month’s GOP primary to oppose second-term Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown.
The ads and mailers in Renacci’s northeast Ohio district encourage people to call the congressman and urge him to keep fighting the “spending problem.”
