The Democratic National Committee is being mocked for its “four-digit digital ad buying” in Florida, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
The ad buy targets “Senator Ron Johnson and Republicans’ latest threat to the ACA” and is placed in four states, spending just four figures, according to The Hill.
“Republicans and Ron Johnson STILL want to REPEAL the Affordable Care Act,” one ad says.
Republican National Committee deputy press secretary Will O’Grady told Fox News Digital that buying four-digit digital ads is an “outrageous amount of money.”
“Clearly bidenflation affects Democrats as well – as evidenced by the meager amount of money they spend on this endeavor. At four figures or four million, no amount of money can cover the failures of Joe Biden and Democrats,” O’Grady mentioned.

Many responded to Politico’s announcement of Olivia Beavers’ Twitter ad buying, saying ad buying wouldn’t go very far.
“How is it even possible to make an ad buy in Florida for ‘four figures’? Do you know how many media markets we have and how much it costs to run an ad???” said Christina Pushaw, associate of press for Florida. Governor Ron DeSantis.
Pushaw told Fox News Digital that it was odd that a four-figure ad buy was even making the news.
“To be frank, I don’t know why a ‘four-digit ad buy’ is even making the news,” Pushaw said. “For context, political campaigns in Florida spend eight figures. I’ve never heard of a ‘four figure’ ad buy in Florida until today, actually.”

“I’m old enough to remember when Pelosi called four-figure ‘crumbs,'” said GOP national press secretary Emma Vaughn.
“A few thousand dollars…in Florida?” said Republican political consultant Luke Thompson.
“4 figures – so they’re spending less than $10,000 and that’s news? The news should be that they’re not really committed to their message,” Erick Erickson said.
“They’re touting spending anywhere from $1 to $9,000 on an ad buy…” said Nicholas Fondacaro of the Media Research Center.
“Four digits! Let’s not get carried away here! Wow,” said Scott Jennings.

DNC spokeswoman Allyson Bayless said the ads were meant to show what Republican-controlled health care would look like.
“The latest threats from Ron Johnson and Republicans against the Affordable Care Act are appalling, but not at all surprising,” Bayless said. “After years of trying to gut health care for Americans, every House Republican voted against lowering prescription drug prices last fall, and now Senator Johnson has made it clear that the next stage of the program Republican economics is to target health care for Americans again, rolling back protections for people with pre-existing conditions and making health care and prescription drugs more expensive Hardworking American Families Deserve to Know Exactly what Republican control would mean for their health care.
