DSCC Hits Berg With New TV Ad

June 19, 2012

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is making a second independent expenditure in the North Dakota Senate race for a 30-second TV ad criticizing Republican Rep. Rick Berg's record. It's the largest ad buy an outside group has made in North Dakota so far this cycle.

The spot, which spoofs the popular "Words With Friends" puzzle game played on mobile devices, argues that Berg's prioritizes his own interests over North Dakotans'.

"One congressman has spelled out his Washington priorities quite clearly," the narrator of the ad says. "He voted to give billions in tax breaks to millionaires while essentially ending Medicare for the rest of us. He voted repeatedly to raise his own pay, then gave tax breaks to companies that ship American jobs overseas."

The DSCC is spending $86,000 on the ad, which is a bit more than the GOP-aligned outside group Crossroads GPS spent on ad it released last week, which ties Democratic nominee Heidi Heitkamp to President Obama's health care law. The DSCC's latest ad will run through July 2.

With last week's primary in the rearview mirror, the ad war is heating up in North Dakota, with Democratic and Republican aligned outside groups already cluttering the airwaves, as both Berg and Heitkamp have each launched several ads of their own.

The two candidates are running to replace retiring Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad.
