About the message:

This mailer from Democratic super PAC says that GOP state Sen. Kevin Priola has voted against making health care more affordable and coverage of pre-existing conditions, while trying to tie him to President Donald Trump.

Some of the votes cited occured six to nine years ago, while others occurred in 2019. Priola is considered by many a moderate Republican, and isn't getting much outside support from GOP groups thus far. He didn't endorse Trump in 2016 and hasn't endorsed him this year.

Priola faces Democrat Paula Dickerson in an Adams County district that is considered to tilt Democratic in 2020.
