Ad of the week: Putting his hand on the scale
Last week, Catherine Cortez Masto more than doubled her spending on YouTube ads, and a good chunk of that $236k is going toward bilingual video ads attacking Republican Adam Laxalt over his contempt for Roe v.

The top spending Senate candidate on digital ads last week was John Fetterman, who dropped $854,899.
The state with the most expensive Senate race online last week was Pennsylvania, where candidates combined spent $1,013,839 on digital ads
Democratic candidates in competitive races spent $4,121,277 on digital ads last week, while Republican candidates spent $662,328.
