Don't Worry, Arizona Bernie Supporters! Club For Growth Is Helping Cheer You On (WATCH, ARIZONA'S AIR WARS)

Club for Growth Action group has got your back, Arizona's Bernie Sanders supporters. The conservative organization is spending nearly $19,000 on digital ads in the state cheering on Sanders fans to not let "them steal" the Democratic nomination from the Vermont Senator. The kicker? "And if they do, remember in November."

While similar games have been played in the past, the ad is a brazen, in-the-open effort to sow discord in the Democratic party ahead of the general election - following the playbook used by Russian interests in the 2016 election.

The independent expenditure filing with the Federal Election Commission shows the Club spending $18,765 producing, promoting and running the digital ad in Arizona ahead of next Tuesday's Democratic Presidential Preference Election here. It notes that they will also be running it nationwide, but the total national expenditure is not included.

Here is the digital ad that Arizonans may be seeing.
