Liberal Activists Accidentally Fly Banner Attacking Nevada Republican Over West Virginia

Sen. Dean Heller (R., Nev.) / AP

Liberal activists in West Virginia accidentally flew an aerial message attacking a Republican senator representing a completely different state on the other side of the country.

Reporters at the Charleston Gazette-Mail on Monday noticed a plane flying around West Virginia's capital city with a banner reading, "SEN HELLER: KEEP YOUR WORD VOTE NO ON TRUMPCARE."

The only problem? Republican Sen. Dean Heller represents Nevada. The GOP senator representing West Virginia is Shelley Moore Capito.

The Gazette-Mail‘s executive editor, Rob Byers, identified UltraViolet, a liberal women's advocacy group, as the organization responsible for the embarrassing mixup.

UltraViolet appeared to be using its aerial message to pressure Senate Republicans to vote against the chamber's health care bill under consideration to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Aerial messages appear to be a favorite tool of UltraViolet. The group flew an anti-Donald Trump banner over the men's U.S. Open golf tournament earlier this month to protest the women's U.S. Open being held at a Trump-owned golf course this year. UltraViolet also recently flew a banner in Kansas City, Kan. attacking the Royals for accepting a pro-life advertisement.
