This is a smart ad for a smart strategy. The 45 Committee is targeting Democratic senators in states that Trump won. A good number of them are up for re-election in 2018. With a theme of “safety first” and Sessions’ record of reaching across the aisle, they’re hoping to box in these senators. Many of them were surprised by Trump winning their states and now they have to choose to stand with him and the colleague they’ve worked with, or reject what their voters voted for.
