(NBC News) – Adam Bozzi, a spokesman for End Citizens United, a left-leaning PAC, said they hope Biden pressures the Senate to “do whatever it takes to pass these bills and not let politics or arguments over process stand in the way.” “But more important than what he says is that he and the administration engage with the Senate and work to pass the bill with the same effort and vigor that they put into passing infrastructure,” he said… End Citizens United and Let America Vote Action Fund will launch a $2.8 million ad campaign, spending $500,000 nationally and the rest in key states to boost the Freedom to Vote Act, Bozzi said. The ad campaign, first reported by NBC News, includes $1 million on ads in Arizona — including one in Spanish — calling on Sinema to defend the “freedom to vote.” It includes $800,000 in West Virginia praising Manchin for backing the Freedom to Vote Act, an attempt to give him cover to change rules. Bozzi said it’ll spend $230,000 in Nevada thanking Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., and $280,000 in New Hampshire thanking Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H. Both face re-election this year.
