The ad is being funded by Americans for a Conservatives Direction, a PAC that features former Mississippi Republican Gov. Haley Barbour and Mitt Romney presidential campaign advisor Dan Senor on its board.

The seven-figure ad buy will air in Texas, Florida, Utah, North Carolina, Iowa and Kentucky, according to a source familiar with Americans for Conservative Direction’s media purchasing.
