A new super PAC known as the Democratic House Majority PAC is keeping the heat on in advance of the 2012 election season, making a six-figure radio buy that will go after seven targeted Republican incumbents. One more will be the target of an ad run on cable television.
The topic of criticism is the House vote on the proposed federal budget put in play by Paul Ryan (R-WI). The part of that budget getting the spotlight is that pertaining to Medicare. Ryan’s proposal has been controversial, and Democrats have made it clear it will be a key part of their campaign message throughout the 2012 cycle.
The recipient of the cable campaign is Chip Cravaack (R-MN).
The legislators targeted by the radio ads include:
Rick Crawford (R-AR)
Tim Griffin (R-AR)
Scott Tipton (R-CO)
Bobby Schilling (R-IL)
Steve King (R-IA)
Joe Heck (R-NV)
Charlie Bass (R-NH)
According to CNN, this marks the new PAC’s second multi-market buy in the early stages of the campaign.
