Politico’s Morning Score: PCCC, Allied Progress, Others Expand Ad Buy Targeting Mnuchin

By Elena Schneider

Three progressive groups are expanding an ad buy warning senators not to vote to confirm President Donald Trump’s treasury pick, Steve Mnuchin. The groups — the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Allied Progress Action and Demand Progress Action — started airing the ad last week. The spot features a widow who chastises Mnuchin for allowing the bank he used to run to foreclose on her house as her husband was dying of cancer. The expanded buy will target six Democratic senators and six Republicans, including several facing competitive races in 2018: Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.). The groups are spending six figures to air the ad on Wednesday and Thursday on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.
