A super PAC linked to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has made a six-figure ad buy in Rep. Fred Upton's (R-MI) district with just days to go in the 2018 midterm cycle.

The district is rated despite the district's rating as "likely Republican" by the Cook Political Report.

The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) made the ad buy earlier this week, according to FEC filings, which reports just over $178,000 for media placement in the district ahead of Tuesday's elections, as reported on Political MoneyLine.

Upton's district is rated "likely Republican" by Cook Political Report and "leans Republican" by RealClearPolitics, suggesting that internal Republican polling may suggest momentum growing on the Democratic side.

FiveThirtyEight's average of polls found Upton with a 4.5-point advantage over Matt Longjohn (D), and gives Longjohn a 1 in 6 chance of unseating the longtime Republican incumbent.

A request for comment to the CLF was not immediately returned Thursday night.

Democrats are hoping to take 23 seats in the House and a net gain of two Senate seats to retake both chambers of Congress. A generic ballot poll released this week found Democrats with a single-digit advantage over Republicans for control of the House.

Michigan's Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow lead her opponent by single digits in a poll released last week after previously leading Republican John James by more than 20 points in the same survey.
