The radio ads will begin next week, but it does not look like a significant buy.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today announced radio spots aimed at 25 House Republicans they hope to unseat next fall to reclaim the majority.
The ads mostly focus on ethics questions, and will air in the districts of these Members:
GOP Reps. Rick Crawford (Ark.), Dan Lungren (Calif.), Jeff Denham (Calif.), Elton Gallegly (Calif.), Mary Bono Mack (Calif.), Scott Tipton (Colo.), Daniel Webster (Fla.), Vern Buchanan (Fla.), David Rivera (Fla.), Steve King (Iowa), Timothy Johnson (Ill.), Bobby Schilling (Ill.), Larry Bucshon (Ind.), Roscoe Bartlett (Md.), Dan Benishek (Mich.), Charles Bass (N.H.), Joe Heck (Nev.), Ann Marie Buerkle (N.Y.), Lou Barletta (Pa.), Charlie Dent (Pa.), Kristi Noem (S.D.), Francisco “Quico” Canseco (Texas), Sean Duffy (Wis.), Reid Ribble (Wis.) and David McKinley (W.Va.).
A GOP source said the ad buy totaled just less than $9,000 for all 25 districts.
My Congressman, Elton Gallegly, is one of those targeted. I dare say this is just an opening salvo in the fight to deny re-election to long-time Congressman Gallegly. Other California Representatives who will be targeted include Dan Lungren, Jeff Denham and Mary Bono Mack.
