A new ad featuring rising energy costs during Joe Biden’s administration will be released late on Tuesday by The Sentinel Action Fund, a GOP Super PAC affiliated with Heritage Action.
The ad, dubbed “Vote Your Thermostat,” will air in New Hampshire until Election Day, where Senator Maggie Hassan is running a close battle against Republican Don Bolduc. Democrats backed Bolduc in the Republican primary because they thought he would be easier to defeat, but two recent polls show the two candidates racing within the margin of error.
“Stuck on your Senate vote? Vote on your thermostat,” says the narrator. “When Joe Biden was elected, a gallon of home heating oil cost two dollars. Today, five dollars. How? Joe Biden and Maggie Hassan launched a war on energy. Hassan voted against fracking three times and against accessing reserves twice. Pipelines were killed by Hassan and Joe Biden. He put pressure on banks to reduce energy financing. You bore the cost. The only way to stop Joe Biden is to turn the other cheek to Maggie Hassan.”
Sentinel will spend $1 million on the commercial, according to Politico, and had already announced a $900,000 ad purchase in the state. According to the most current Federal Election Commission reports, the Super PAC has spent almost $11.4 million in the 2022 midterm elections.
Republicans have been concerned about their capacity to spend on behalf of some Senate candidates, many of whom have had a hard time keeping up with their Democratic rivals throughout the election year. Hassan has raised more than $33.68 million, while Bolduc has raised $2.25 million. The Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), which has spent about $16 million in New Hampshire on candidates, canceled a $5.6 million ad purchase in the state in order to support Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania.
Sentinel disclosed Arizona ad purchases in support of Republican Blake Masters in Sept., just after SLF stopped advertising in that race.
According to AAA, gas prices nationwide were $3.76 per gallon on Tuesday, with New Hampshire at $3.72 per gallon. When discussing energy difficulties, the Biden administration has cited the median gas price, which is the lowest of the three regularly used statistical averages. On Oct. 27, Biden erroneously stated in New York that gas prices were more than $5 per gallon during the start of his presidency.
