Absent a backable presidential candidate, traditionally libertarian-leaning Freedom Partners Action Fund -- run by the infamous Koch Brothers -- is looking down-ballot to find state races to throw money at.

The PAC recently dropped $3 million on a single ad campaign aimed at Pennsylvania Democrat Katie McGinty, who's in the midst of a contested senatorial race with incumbent Republican Pat Toomey.

"The ad, titled 'Whose Job,' charges that McGinty, as head of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection sought subsidies for companies that later paid her after her role in the government ended," according to NBC News.

In addition to the McGinty smear, the PAC plans to spend "more than $42 million on ads in key Senate races through the end of September," according to a recent Washington Post report.

Watch the $3 million ad below:
