A six-figure TV ad campaign launches today against Sens. Murkowski, Collins and Capito, Axios has learned, as Republicans are moving quickly on yet another health care repeal and replace plan.

Why it matters: No health care bill is likely to pass the Senate without the help of these 3 senators who have either voted against previous GOP repeal plans and whose states would lose a lot of Medicaid money.

The ad urges the senators to vote against the Graham-Cassidy health care repeal plan. Save My Care, a left-leaning grassroots organization, is behind the ad.

Why these 3 senators: All three are from states that would face "potentially disastrous consequences for health care," the group argues.

By the numbers: Alaska (Murkowski's state) would lose $844 million in federal funding, Maine (Collins' state) over $1 billion, and West Virginia (Capito's state) over $2 billion by 2027 if the bill passes.

Why it matters: It represents a strong break by Keir Starmer, Labour's current leader, from the Corbyn era and one of the party's most persistent scandals.

The state of play: The record growth follows easing of the coronavirus-driven lockdowns that pushed the economy to the worst-ever contraction — but GDP still remains well below its pre-pandemic level.
