Heritage Action is spending big to boost GOP candidates rejected by congressional Republicans

EXCLUSIVE: The Heritage Foundations political advocacy group is making a big investment in future terms and pouring money into states where congressional Republicans have raised concerns about the quality of candidates.

Heritage Action for America’s super PAC, the Sentinel Action Fund, is spending $5 million in Arizona and $1 million in Georgia to boost the candidacy of two candidates who have fallen out of favor with nationally elected Republicans.

That spending is supplemented by Heritage Action itself, which exclusively told Fox News Digital that it spent $1.8 million on voter engagement in Nevada and New Hampshire. Both states are hosting high-profile Senate and House races this year that could determine which party holds power in Congress.

“There are conservative candidates and conservative policies at play,” said Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action. “Let’s go and do this and win back a [congressional] majority for the right reasons and frankly with the right people. »

Arizona is where Heritage’s super PAC has made its biggest investment. He is spending more than $5 million supporting Blake Masters, the GOP nominee for the US Senate.

In contrast, the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC closely aligned with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Majority Leader, R-Ky., announced last month that it was cutting nearly $8 million from ads it had reservations in Arizona throughout Election Day.

“We think he has a real chance. We think this race is winnable,” Anderson said of Masters. “We think other groups in the conservative and Republican establishment should come back to Arizona, they should take a second look at the state and realize what’s at stake.”

Masters, who is trailing his Democratic opponent in fundraising, told Fox News Digital that conservative voters in Arizona are beginning to wonder why the national Republican isn’t more involved in his race.

Outside of Arizona, Sentinel is spending $1 million to boost GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker in Georgia. The super PAC is also running nearly $1 million worth of negative ads against Democratic sensi Mark Kelly of Arizona and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire over high gas prices.

"I think the House is probably more likely to tip over than the Senate," Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell told an audience last month.

In each of those states, National Republicans have in recent months raised concerns about their chances of success. Candidates like Walker and Masters trail incumbent Democrats in polls and fundraising.

By July, Masters had raised $4.8 million to Kelly’s more than $52 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Walker has raised nearly $20 million compared to Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock’s more than $60 million.

“I think there’s probably a better chance of the House failing than the Senate,” Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said before an audience last month in his home state of Kentucky. “Senate races are just different, they’re statewide. The quality of the candidates has a lot to do with the outcome.”
