WATCH: Citizens' United's Biggest Ad Buy (So Far) This Year Is In Southern Arizona

Citizens United's Political Victory Fund made its single largest ad buy of this campaign season this week, spending $100,000 in southern Arizona to support Jesse Kelly (R) in his special election battle against Ron Barber (D) in CD8.

The FEC filing on Thursday explains that the ad will run as early ballots hit mailboxes during the next 1 1/2 weeks (May 16-25).  The ad is titled "Jesse Kelly Will Repeal Obamacare", and repeats a lot of claims about the healthcare reform law signed two years ago that many Fact Checks - including on this site - have found to be false.  (Cuts Medicare, Guts Medicare Advantage, Increases Deficit, etc)
