POLITICO Morning Score COUNTER-PROGRAMMING — Congressional Leadership Fund launches digital ads in Trump-Democrat districts: The 30-second ads link Democrats to the most radical elements of the so-called resistance to Trump and to unpopular House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. “The Democrats are the party of the resistance,” a male narrator says in the spot, which includes images of Kathy Griffin holding Trump’s severed head and of violent protests on the day of Trump’s inauguration. “Radical extremists who destroy buildings, burn cars and divide America. Hollywood celebrities who are blinded by their hatred of the president. Nancy Pelosi and the Washington Democrats answer to them.” The ads will run in Pelosi’s district, as well as the districts of Minnesota Reps.
