The Senate Republicans’ campaign arm is launching ad buys expected to exceed $100 million ahead of the 2024 elections, in which the party stands a significant chance of taking back the majority in the upper chamber. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) on Thursday started reserving multimillion-dollar ad spots for the fall in key states Ohio, Nevada, Michigan and Arizona as it eyes potential Republican pickup opportunities. The reservations are for both television and digital ad campaigns. DEMOCRATS EYE TAKE DOWN OF FEDERAL PROVISION COULD AFFECT ABORTION BY MAILThe races in Ohio and Nevada are considered “Toss Ups” by non-partisan political handicapper the Cook Political Report.
