FIRST ON FOX: An outside group supporting Republican businessman Jeff Bartos in Pennsylvania’s increasingly divisive GOP Senate primary next week will launch a nearly $2 million ad blitz that showcases Bartos’ Keystone State roots and takes aim at two top primary rivals.

The new spot by the super PAC Jobs For Our Future is the latest commercial in the Republican primary’s expensive ad wars in the fight to succeed retiring GOP Sen. Pat Toomey. The race in the key battleground state is one of a handful that could decide whether Republicans win back the Senate majority in November’s midterm elections.

Bartos, a real estate developer, philanthropist and the 2018 Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, last week showcased his home state roots in a new “Pennsylvania First” plan, in a digital ad and in media interviews. And without naming names, he charged that some of his top rivals in the race who had moved to Pennsylvania in recent months were “political tourists.”


The ad by Jobs For Our Future, which by law is not allowed to coordinate with the Bartos campaign, seems to pick up where the candidate left off.

Over pictures of former hedge fund executive David McCormick and celebrity physician Dr. Oz, who are also running, the narrator in the ad claims that “out-of-state politicians are coming into Pennsylvania to buy a U.S. Senate seat. But conservative businessman Jeff Bartos knows Pennsylvania has never been for sale.”

The narrator in the ad, which was shared first with Fox News, then touts that “Jeff was born here, raised his family here, started a business and created jobs here. That’s why he helped save over 1,000 Pennsylvania small businesses in all 67 counties during liberal lockdowns. We can trust Jeff Bartos to crack down on illegal immigration, stand up
