Lincoln Project targets Senate races in Alaska, Maine, Montana with $4M ad buy
The Hill ^ | July 29 | BY JULIA MANCHESTER

Posted on 07/29/2020 10:44:19 AM PDT by RandFan

The Lincoln Project, a GOP anti-Trump group, on Wednesday launched a $4 million ad buy targeting Senate contests in Maine, Alaska and Montana.

The buy, which was first reported by Axios, will air for seven to 10 days in key markets in the three states.

The ads in Alaska and Maine express support for challengers to Republican incumbent Sens. Steve Daines (Mont.) and Dan Sullivan (Alaska). The spots are dubbed "Real" in Alaska and "Strong" in Montana. The group endorsed Democrat Al Gross in its ad in Alaska ahead of the state's Democratic and independent primary on Aug. 18.

Meanwhile, in Maine, the group is airing an ad titled "Trump Stooge," which targets incumbent Republican Sen. Susan Collins.

"We’re moving into the active phase of the fall campaign as voters, stuck at home because of COVID-19, tune in earlier than ever," the group's communications director Keith Edwards told Axios.

The National Republican Senatorial Campaign committee hit the group over the ads in a statement on Wednesday, taking aim specifically at Collins's opponent, Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon (D).

“This Democrat scam PAC is run by ethically challenged and shady grifters who are backed by liberal billionaires. Like the candidate they seek to help, Democrat Sara Gideon, this PAC has struggled with rampant hypocrisy, unethical behavior, and ties to foreign governments," said NRSC spokesman Nathan Brand.

The Lincoln Project supports terrorism, as does every Biden voter.

The call themselves a GOP group.

Funny too, they are targeting RINO’s that are not far enough left!

This is the remnant of Camp McCain. Romney and Ryan are in, at least in spirit. Look for Romney to change parties.

Whatever it takes to get that final amnesty and complete the Bush Plan for North Mexico (aka USA).

Anybody that calls Collins a ‘Trump-Stooge’ is, by definition, NOT a Republican. Most Republicans consider her a ‘RINO’.

This is fraud. See how long it would last if someone started up a “Bill Clinton Project” fund that supported nothing but Republicans.

So they have an insurance plan in case Trump wins. Impeachment will be immediately brought to the Senate and he will be convicted and removed if these @#$&s get their way. Then it's back to business as usual where the uniparty pretends to have things they disagree with for the cameras but behind the scenes they collaborate on eroding our liberties while stuffing their own pockets.

Take comfort in the fact that Rick Wilson hasn’t gotten anyone elected to anything since Rudy became mayor of NYC in 1997.

Can't we get our own ethically challenged and shady grifters backed by conservative billionaires to combat them?

The Lincoln Project, a GOP anti-Trump group,

I don't buy it. They are a democrat dirty-tricks group.

Here's an idea... Maybe we should start a democrat Anti-radical group. We can call it the JFK Project, and rant about how JFK woulda fought these commies called today's democrats tooth and nail.

The best defense is a killer offense. Always attack, never retreat.

Now that I think about it, does Kellyanne Conway put her (considerable) income into a joint checking account? Does her demented toad husband George have access to that money? Because if that is true, then the Lincoln project group of traitors could be receiving, indirectly, taxpayer money to fund it.

Once the taxpayers’ agent parts with the money, once Conway is paid, it’s not taxpayer money any more. It’s Conway money to be spent however Conway chooses.
