A dark money group aligned with President Trump is launching a seven-figure multistate advertising campaign pushing back on impeachment, with an initial ad buy targeting Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.).

The group, America First Policies, will roll out the first installment of the campaign Wednesday, with a $450,000 buy in Alabama accusing Jones of aligning himself with the “radical left” and urging him to put an end to impeachment proceedings against Trump.

“Instead of confirming conservative judges, instead of securing our borders by funding the wall, Jones is siding with them,” a narrator says in the ad, which will debut across media markets in Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery.

“So call Doug Jones. Tell him to stop standing with the radical left and end impeachment,” the narrator adds.

America First Policies said it was prepared to spend $1 million across three states on the anti-impeachment ad campaign, though the group did not say what other states it planned to target.

The ad campaign was first reported by Politico.

Jones, a freshman senator who only narrowly won a special election to replace former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) in 2017, is widely considered the most vulnerable Democratic senator facing reelection in 2020.
