DCCC Launches Ad Campaign Highlighting Rubber Stamp Republicans' Iraq Record

Chairman Chris Van Hollen announced today that the DCCC would be targeting twelve Republicans for their lockstep support of President Bush’s failed Iraq policy. The DCCC’s radio buy is part of Democrats' Month of Action on Iraq, which kicked off last week with a DCCC-DSCC-DNC national cable TV ad.

“This August we're going district by district to urge Republicans to stop obstructing progress and work with us to end the war in Iraq” Chairman Van Hollen said. “Republicans who continue to vote in lock step with the President Bush's failed Iraq policy will be held accountable.”

The news, weather, and traffic radio ads began airing during drive time on Wednesday. The initial ad buy is for one week. You can listen to the ads at www.dccc.org. The ads will run in the following districts:

Chris Shays (CT-04)
