What’s happening: The Club for Growth, an influential GOP group, is going on air with a minute-long TV ad slamming West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice as “a deadbeat billionaire” who is “delinquent on his financial and moral obligations” and an “embarrassment to West Virginia”.
Details: Backed by a $10,000 buy, the spot will air during the Sunday shows this weekend and comes just days after the Republican governor launched a bid for Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin’s seat. The Club is backing Rep. Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.), Justice’s primary opponent.
The hits: The ad alleges that Justice cut off promised health coverage for retired coal miners and their families. “No warning, just cruel,” a narrator says.
