LAS VEGAS (AP) - A group that wants to reform campaign finance law is buying $1.5 million in airtime for commercials supporting Democratic Senate hopeful Catherine Cortez Masto.

The End Citizens United PAC announced Monday that it was buying airtime in Nevada and New Hampshire Senate races. The group’s executive director says Cortez Masto is committed to ending the corrupting influence of unlimited campaign spending.

The commercials in Nevada are set to run in Las Vegas and Reno from Aug. 16 through Sept. 2.

Cortez Masto is a former Nevada attorney general who’s running a competitive race against Republican Rep. Joe Heck.

End Citizens United aims to combat the effects of a Supreme Court decision that cleared the way for unlimited spending from groups who support candidates but aren’t directly coordinating with their campaigns.
