The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has reportedly decided to cut at least $1 million in advertising that was going toward helping Rep. Kevin Yoder of Kansas as the GOP re-evaluates certain candidates’ chances of winning heading into November.
The NRCC’s decision to slash advertising for Yoder reportedly comes from the organization’s lack of confidence that Yoder can pull out a win against Davids, The Hill reports, who would become Kansas’ first Native American and openly gay nominee for Congress.
Both the NRCC and the Congressional Leadership Fund have pulled ads from Reps. Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania, Mike Coffman of Colorado and Mike Bishop of Michigan, the report states.
Yoder has received outside donations from the Congressional Leadership Fund as well, nearly $1.8 million in digital ads so far.
“Make no mistake about it,” Jim Joice, the executive director of the Kansas Republican Party told The Kansas City Star. “We have a very tough cycle on our hands.”
Although Republicans appear to be cutting their losses in a few races, it is not for a shortage of funds.
According to a Bloomberg examination of Federal Election Commission reports, Republicans have a cash advantage in some of the more competitive races, which they hope will push them over the edge in November’s toss-up races.
