The Lincoln Project, the Republican group of critics of President Donald Trump, is now targeting Sen. Martha McSally in their hopes of unseating her and flipping the seat to blue.
The Super PAC, which includes George Conway, the husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, and Steve Schmidt, a former adviser to the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Wednesday is unveiling a digital ad targeting McSally, R-Ariz., and other Republican senators who they deem Trump’s enablers, including Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, North Carolina’s Thom Tillis, and Colorado’s Cory Gardner.
At 6 p.m. Thursday, Lincoln Project co-founders Mike Madrid and Ron Steslow and the group’s executive director Sarah Lenti are hosting a virtual town hall for Arizona voters. The committee’s members are expected to talk about their efforts in the Arizona Senate race heading into the final months of the cycle with the hopes of winning over Republicans and independent voters wary of Trump.
