The NRCC has announced a new wide-reaching ad campaign, composed of TV and radio spots plus robocalls, targeting key House Democrats over the federal budget. They aren’t targeting President Obama — he’s too popular right now, obviously — but are instead focusing their firepower on Nancy Pelosi.
Here’s a TV ad against Rep. Zack Space (D-OH):
“Nancy Pelosi pushed a budget with a trillion-dollar deficit — and Space voted to let Nancy Pelosi get her way,” the announcer says. There’s also a radio version of the ad, with this sample against freshman Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper (D-PA).
Space’s district voted for John McCain 53%-45%, and Dahlkemper’s went for McCain by less than one point. The NRCC will also have other TV and radio ads and robocalls against a diverse line-up of House Dems, some from Obama districts and others from McCain districts, though all of them are swing seats to various degrees. The full listing is after the jump.
