NBC BAY AREA (KNTV-CHANNEL 11) -- Jason McDaniel, an associate professor of Political Science at San Francisco State, said the creators of the ad “want to paint their opponent as unacceptably different.” “One of the purposes of the ad might be to really make people aware that you need to donate money if you care about Republicans maintaining control of Congress,” he said. “They're trying to make sure that the stakes are clear.” McDaniel added that the ad could be effective for Republicans because it is receiving attention. On the other hand, McDaniel said a casual voter who comes across the ad might actually vote for Ossoff because of how many times his name is mentioned.
