Americans for Prosperity has two new ads running in Colorado and Louisiana knocking those state's Democratic senators, Mark Udall and Mary Landrieu, respectively, for their support for Obamacare. The ads, which are a version of earlier AFP ads targeting Democratic House members, feature a woman talking directly to the camera about how "Obamacare doesn't work. It just doesn't work." Watch the Colorado ad below:

The very similar Louisiana ad is viewable here.

AFP has targeted Landrieu and other Senate Democrats like Kay Hagan and Jeanne Shaheen before, but this is the first ad the free-market group has run in Colorado against Udall. Udall's seat has become a target in recent weeks as poll numbers showed both the Democrat and Obamacare with weak support. The recent decision of Republican congressman Cory Gardner to run against Udall has shaken up the Colorado race, and one poll showed Udall and Gardner in a virtual tie.

In Louisiana, meanwhile, Landrieu's chief Republican opponent is Republican congressman Bill Cassidy. The Real Clear Politics poll average gives Cassidy a very slight lead over the incumbent Democrat.
