A conservative group has urged three senators who could be the decisive votes on Joe Biden’s pick to lead the Health and Human Services (HHS) Department to reject the nominee.

On Wednesday, Heritage Action announced it’s running a $500,000 ad campaign in West Virginia and Arizona in an effort to target Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.).

The ad slams HHS secretary nominee Xavier Becerra over his positions on issues like guns, coal and immigration. They also took aim at his poor track record as California attorney general.

Many GOP senators have indicated they will not vote for Becerra, which means he will likely need the votes of the three moderate Democrats to be confirmed.
