The National Rifle Association has a new ad defending Republican senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire for her vote against the Toomey-Manchin gun control amendment.
"Seen this TV ad paid for by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg? Don't believe it," the voiceover says. "Kelly Ayotte voted for a bipartisan plan to make background checks more effective." Watch the NRA's ad below:
Republican Pat Toomey and Democrat Joe Manchin announced a gun bill compromise to expand background checks earlier today. The legislation is in direct response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.
