NRCC IE Ads, No Clear Message
From Jesse Ferguson, DCCC – "During the 2008 election, former NRCC Chairman Tom Davis said the Republican brand was dog food and now it's gotten worse. It comes as no surprise House Republicans don't want a debate about their agenda that puts millionaires over Medicare but with Paul Ryan’s Medicare-ending budget as a ticket mate, they better brace themselves."

First NRCC IE Ads Show Surprising Diversity

The NRCC's Independent Expenditure campaign will launch TV ads tomorrow in four districts currently held by moderate Democrats who survived the 2010 GOP wave, and the ads are surprisingly different from each other.
The different spots, produced by four different consultants, suggest that the NRCC won't rely on a single message this cycle, something of a contrast to the current Democratic strategy of using the Ryan budget and Medicare against Republican candidates.
Currently, the Democratic IE is airing an ad – on the Ryan budget and Medicare -- in one district, Michigan’s 1st C.D., though it wouldn’t be surprising if it were to begin advertising elsewhere soon.
