Louisiana Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy unveiled a new campaign ad Friday that features three women who said they'd previously voted for three-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu – but were ditching her for Cassidy this election because of her support for Obamacare.
The ad for Landrieu's top challenger will begin running Saturday, according to Roll Call
, which said it got a first-peak at the spot.
"Senator Landrieu, I voted for you before, but when you voted for Obamacare, I knew I had made a mistake," one woman identified only as "Rose" declares.
"We’re voting for Bill Cassidy," "Rose" concludes.
"He stands up to Barack Obama," adds a second voter, identified as "Gerry."
"And he'll vote to repeal and replace Obamacare,” declares a third voter identified as "Ginger."
The ad will run statewide and is initially backed by a $400,000 buy, Roll Call reported.
Landrieu and Cassidy are expected to advance to a Dec. 6 runoff because of the number of candidates running in the November primary; Cassidy holds a slight lead
in recent polling.
Roll Call notes the Louisiana race is a top target of national Republicans, who need a net gain of six seats to win a majority in the Senate.
