Politico reports:

The CHUCK SCHUMER-aligned SMP, through prominent Democratic lawyer MARC ELIAS’ law firm, wrote back to defend the ad’s assertions. But one station’s lawyers sided with Scott. “I have consulted with our attorneys and while this is a difficult decision, we will be pulling the ad as of tomorrow unless new documentation or information comes in that changes the course of our decision,” an executive at Reno’s CBS affiliate, KTVN 2 News, wrote to both parties. (The ad is still airing on other stations in Nevada.)

Watch for yourself:

NEW: We just launched ads blasting Adam Laxalt for opposing lower prescription drug costs for seniors on Medicare AND the expanded child tax credit. While Senator Cortez Masto is doing the work, Laxalt is threatening to leave NV in the dust. Watch here: https://t.co/qx5GeqaOVy

And Dems have every right to be worried about Laxalt’s candidacy:

Yeah, this might resonate in the Silver State:

No one voted to radically transform our economy.

That’s what Catherine Cortez Masto and Bernie Sanders are trying to do.

We have to stop them and protect Nevada families from tax hikes and inflation.
