The issue is health care reform, and the League of American Voters is against it. And it is spending cash for TV time to take its case into eleven separate Congressional districts, targeting eleven separate Democratic representatives.
The ads target Reps who LAV implies are vulnerable this year. “…if you think you’ve got trouble now back home in your district, cast the deciding vote for Obamacare,” says Bob Adams, executive director for the League of American Voters.
Adams has Republican credentials – he is a former staffer to former US Rep. J.C. Watts (R-OK), and failed in a bid to be elected to the West Virginia State Senate by a small margin back in 2008.
Among the Reps being targeted:
* Baron Hill (D-IN): Market: Louisville KY
* Mark Schauer (D-MI): Market: Lansing
* Dan Maffei (D-NY). Market: Syracuse
* Mike Arcuri (D-NY). Markets: Syracuse, Utica
* Kathy Dahlkemper (D-PA). Market: Erie
* Christopher Carney (D-PA). Market: Wilkes Barre-Scranton
* Paul Kanjorski (D-PA). Market: Wilkes Barre-Scranton
* Tom Perriello (D-VA). Market: Charlottesville
* Nick Rahall (D-WV). Markest: Charleston-Huntington, Bluefield-Beckley
* Allan Mollohan (D-WV). Market: Bluefield-Beckley
* Steve Kagen (D-WI). Market: Green Bay
