One group, which is backed by the libertarian billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, launched a $2.5 million television ad campaign that targets three Democratic senators who support the law and could face stiff challenges from Republicans in November elections. The group, Americans for Prosperity, or AFP, spent more than $36 million on the 2012 elections, largely for ads that bashed the law known as Obamacare and Democrats who supported it. The ads by AFP are aimed at North Carolina’s Kay Hagan, Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu and New Hampshire’s Jeanne Shaheen.
