Debt Ceiling Becomes Central Issue On The Trail

July 21, 2011
The group's president, Penny Nance, was blunt about the fact that they had chosen to target Nelson because he's vulnerable in 2012. "Ben Nelson is up for re-election, and we think he'll be open to hearing from our members, more than ever before," she told the Omaha World-Herald. In other places, Republican candidates are going on offense with the issue. In Nevada's 2nd District special election, Republican nominee Mark Amodei has made the debt ceiling debate a major theme of his campaign, launching two television ads on the subject. "I will never vote to raise Obama's debt limit and risk our independence," Amodei says at the end of his first ad. Just this week, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst mentioned the debt ceiling in a video announcing his Senate candidacy. "Washington is addicted to debt," Dewhurst says in the video. "It's maxed out all of our credit cards, its asking for more, with no strings attached, and I'm not going to go along with that." Dewhurst also mentions that he is signing the "Cut, Cap, And Balance" pledge. Much of the focus in television ads in New York's 26th District special election earlier this year surrounded the debate over Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and his budget proposal that revamps Medicare. But as the debt ceiling debate took center stage, the subject material of many ads in other races followed suit.
