The progressive outside group is going up with a digital ad, obtained by The Hill ahead of its release, that will run on both Facebook and Instagram, targeting Kentucky and national audiences.

"The country needs emergency relief now, not more extremist judges who will vote to overturn the Affordable Care Act and take away health care from millions when they need it most.

The more than half-minute ad starts by referencing McConnell's comments in a recent Hugh Hewitt interview that the impeachment trial distracted Congress from acting quickly on the coronavirus early on.
