PHOENIX (AP) - A dark-money group opposing Republican Sen. Martha McSally has a new ad blasting her recent vote on a health care measure.

A spokesman for Advancing AZ says the ad will air beginning Thursday as part of an ongoing seven-figure blitz.

McSally is a top target for Democrats and has been the subject of a barrage of ads ahead of the 2020 election.

The latest faults McSally for her vote last month not to overturn a Trump administration health care rule. That rule could make it easier for insurance companies to sell policies that don't meet the minimum standards in former President Barack Obama's health law.

The Trump administration said the rule would help more people afford coverage. Critics say it allows "junk" insurance policies that don't cover much.
