SOMETIMES DEAD IS BETTER: Conservative Group Targets Manchin with $1.5M Ad Buy, ‘Let Build Back Die’

Last week, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced that the Democrats would be “starting from scratch” on Biden’s signature social and environmental spending bill Build Back Better.

But at least one conservative group would like to see it gone forever.

According to the Washington Times, “The Common Sense Leadership Fund, which has strong ties to the congressional Republican leadership, launched ads Tuesday that target Mr. Manchin in his home state West Virginia. The ads urge the lawmaker to oppose any effort by the White House to resurrect the $1.75 trillion social welfare and climate change bill, officially called the Build Back Better Act.”

“Joe Manchin already killed off Biden’s radical agenda. Now Biden is bringing it back,” a narrator in one of the ads states. “New name, same liberal agenda.”

“Similar ads target Sen. Jon Tester, a moderate Democrat from Montana. The campaign will run on both television and digital platforms throughout West Virginia and Montana,” the Times reports.
