LAS VEGAS (AP) — State Treasurer Kate Marshall is blasting Republican Mark Amodei’s Medicare views in a new TV spot for the Nevada special election.
The Associated Press has learned that Marshall’s third TV ad of the campaign, which first aired Friday, will run for at least a week.
The ad features Amodei praising Republican Congressman Paul Ryan’s plan to privatize Medicare for anyone younger than 55.
Amodei has applauded Ryan’s budget overhaul, but has occasionally waffled on whether he supports the Medicare component.
The Sept. 13 election has been hard fought, with national Republicans smearing Marshall as an economic disaster and Marshall painting Amodei as a conservative who supports tax increases.
Republicans have a registration edge in the northern Nevada congressional district and Marshall wants to show voters she will protect them from Washington.
