Republican’s gonna be carrying this on their backs….
Democrats and allied groups are launching a $6 million digital, television and voter mobilization campaign attacking GOP Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, betting that his pledges to completely ban abortion will turn off swing state voters.
The ads, which will highlight Mastriano’s position and public comments against abortion rights, will begin airing in Pennsylvania on Monday. Sponsored by the political nonprofit Strategic Victory Fund along with other major Democratic donors and allied organizations, the campaign is being run by affiliates of Planned Parenthood and the Democratic Governors Association, along with the Pennsylvania-based progressive nonprofit group Commonwealth Communications.
The campaign is a massive sum for the starting gate of the most high-profiled gubernatorial races in the country.

But Mastriano, a state senator, has sponsored legislation that would ban abortion as soon as a heartbeat is detected.
Mastriano will face off against state Attorney General Josh Shapiro in the general election. Shapiro has already signaled that he will make protecting abortion rights a key component of his campaign messaging….

Christina Amestoy, a Democratic Governors Association spokesperson, said her organization also has been coordinating its messaging with the abortion-rights groups. In addition, Democratic attorneys general and candidates have met with a working group that included the Planned Parenthood Action Fund to discuss fundraising, said Geoff Burgan, a spokesperson for the Democratic Attorneys General Association. Burgan noted the organization has received several six-figure donations from individuals motivated by abortion rights….
