Ads Target 10 House Republicans In Swing Districts Over Shutdown (VIDEO)


The liberal advocacy group Americans United for Change launched a TV ad campaign Wednesday against House Republicans who may be susceptible in the 2014 election due to their role in the government shutdown.

The ads will target Reps. Tom Latham (R-IA), Richard Hanna (R-NY), Dan Benishek (R-MI), Lou Barletta (R-PA), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Tim Walberg (R-MI), Sean Duffy (R-WI), Bill Johnson (R-OH), Andy Barr (R-KY) and Rodney Davis (R-IL), according to the Huffington Post

The ads begin by saying that each member joined the Tea Party in shutting down the government, and then list impacts that the shutdown has had on Americans, like ceasing food inspections and putting veteran benefits at risk.
