DCCC Launches “Drive to 25” Ad & Grassroots Campaign in Targeted Districts

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) today announced it is launching a paid advertising and grassroots campaign to hold 19 vulnerable House Republicans accountable for choosing a partisan plan that will cost jobs and make America less competitive over the President’s common sense solutions to create jobs and get the economy moving again.  As part of the “Drive to 25,” the DCCC will be running radio ads, web ads, automated phone calls, live phone calls, and e-mails in targeted districts throughout the week.  The ads will begin Monday during drive time in the following districts:

Lou Barletta (PA-11)

Charlie Bass (NH-02)

Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25)
(Audio Link)

Steve Chabot (OH-01)

Chip Cravaack (MN-08)

Robert Dold (IL-10)

Sean Duffy (WI-07)
(Audio Link)

Blake Farenthold (TX-27)

Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-08) *

Nan Hayworth (NY-19)

Joe Heck (NV-03)

Robert Hurt (VA-05)

Thad McCotter (MI-11)

Patrick Meehan (PA-07)

Dave Reichert (WA-08)

David Rivera (FL-25) *

Jon Runyan (NJ-03)

Joe Walsh (IL-08)

Allen West (FL-22)

The text of the ads running against Buerkle and Duffy follows:

Here in Central New York the recession is still hitting hard, good job openings are really scarce. So it was good to hear President Obama’s plan to make the economy work for the middle class again. Invest in education to train our children for the jobs of the future, maintain America’s lead in technology with more research and development, and reduce the deficit with an overall budget freeze. That plan makes a lot of sense.

But Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle supports a plan in Congress that would cut education by 40 percent.  And her plan would cut science and technology research by 40 percent, too. Research and development is how we get the new products that create new jobs.  How does cutting that help us compete with China and India?  It doesn’t make sense.

We should tell Ann Marie Buerkle to work with President Obama to create jobs, instead of supporting a partisan plan that costs jobs.
