• AK-Sen: Both candidates are out with a new spot. Democratic Sen. Mark Begich takes advantage of the heated Republican primary that ended Tuesday, using clips of defeated candidates Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller attacking nominee Dan Sullivan. Treadwell and Miller hit Sullivan for not remembering fishing licenses or taxes, having weak roots in Alaska, and for being close to out-of-state interests. Treadwell has a particularity devastating line: "If you're gonna represent Alaska, it helps to know Alaska." Ouch.
Sullivan goes positive, promoting the Alaska spirit as he runs through some very picturesque outdoors. Crossroads GPS also chimes in, accusing Begich of not paying his female staffers as much as his male staffers.
• GA-Sen: EMILY's List is spending $1 million on a new spot for Democrat Michelle Nunn. The ad is not online yet, but it will focus on a gender discrimination lawsuit against Republican David Perdue when he was CEO of Dollar General. The DSCC also chips in another $298,000.
• LA-Sen: The DSCC spends a whooping $2.5 million accusing Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy voting against veteran's interests, while voting to cut taxes for the wealthy. Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu features an electrician criticizing Cassidy for raising the retirement age while voting to cut his own taxes.
• AR-Gov: Republican Asa Hutchinson responds to a recent Democrat spot accusing him of illegally taking out a tax break on his home. The narrator says Hutchinson made a mistake and reported it, and fuck Barack Obama (he may not have used those exact words).
• AZ-Gov: Better Leaders for Arizona, a PAC backing corporate attorney Christine Jones, accuses Republican primary rival Treasurer Doug Ducey of hiding his failures as the former head of Cold Stone Creamery. Jones also has another spot touting her business background, as really repetitive music plays.
