Progressive Turnout Project will launch the ads Friday along with a petition “demanding” the five GOP senators “do their jobs” and stand up for a “fair and full impeachment trial.”
The ads on Google and Facebook target Republican Sens. Martha McSally (Ariz.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Susan Collins (Maine) and Thom Tillis (N.C.).
“Our ads have a simple message for Senate Republicans — if you refuse to do your job, then voters will do theirs and vote you out in November,” Progressive Turnout Project Executive Director Alex Morgan said. “By doing and saying anything to cover up Donald Trump’s crimes, Senate Republicans are ensuring impeachment will be a top motivating issue for infrequent voters sick of DC corruption.”
The ads are part of the progressive group’s pledge to spend $45 million to turn out voters in 16 presidential and Senate battleground states this year.
