LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Even though the 2018 elections are over a year away, U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan, has found herself on the receiving end of political attack ads.

A Republican Facebook ad campaign is targeting Democratic senators in states that voted for President Donald Trump. Stabenow is up for re-election in 2018.

The ad created by the National Republican Senatorial Committee that features Stabenow is focused on heath care. It draws a line from Stabenow to U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, through their voting records and condemns Warren’s public support of a single-payer health care system.

Stabenow’s office didn’t comment on the campaign, but instead focused on her efforts to work across party lines to find a solution.

The ad campaign is set to run throughout Michigan until the end of July.
