24 hours after the Supreme Court health care ruling, A group with Republican ties is on the air in North Dakota, running an ad urging Democratic Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp to fight for repeal of the law.
The $180,000 ad buy, by Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, will run through July 7.
North Dakota's Senate seat, now held by retiring Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., is viewed as one of the Republican party's best bets to gain a seat in November.
Heitkamp has been running ads recalling how she beat breast cancer 12 years ago. "When you live through that," she said, "political attack ads seem silly."
She said "there's good and bad in the health care law that needs to be fixed."
The ad offers quotes from Heitkamp in support of the law. Republicans have vowed to fight to repeal the entire law.
