Voters in Michigan’s 8th and 11th Congressional districts who might be craving even more partisan advertisements are about to get their fill as a $7 million advertising campaign has begun rolling out, which will throw an estimated $400,000 in districts held by Democrats Elissa Slotkin and Haley Stevens. A sneak peek of what is to come can be found on YouTube, as posted by the American Action Network, a conservative issue advocacy group aligned with the Republican Party, and whose officials run the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC focused on electing a House Republican majority, or you can just turn on the TV. The ads are specifically targeting districts where President Trump performed well in 2016, and which are currently held by Democrats – such as Slotkin and Stevens’ districts in metro Detroit. The goal is to lump those Democrats together with the “Squad” of Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Dearborn), Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as rabid anti-Trumpers focused more on impeachment than the business of Congress.
