DCCC Pulls One Week of Kissell Ads

September 20, 2012

Updated at 7:00 p.m.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has cut one week of advertising from incumbent Rep. Larry Kissell, D-N.C. The committee won't run ads in North Carolina's 8th District the week of Oct. 2 - 8.

Kissell is considered among the most vulnerable House candidates up for reelection this November -- his district became about 10 points more Republican post-redistricting. He faces former House staffer Richard Hudson, who won a summer runoff with the backing of YG Action Fund, a super PAC run by former aides to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, as well as the American Action Network.

It's worth continuing to keep an eye on the race to see whether the DCCC goes back on the air, or whether this is a prelude to the committee cutting the incumbent loose.

"Larry Kissell is battle-tested and has won tough fights by gaining the support of Independents and Republicans," said DCCC spokesperson Jesse Ferguson. "Kissell can win against Washington insider Richard Hudson who is running a lackluster campaign and supports an agenda to end Medicare."

Meanwhile, the DCCC announced they would begin running ads in Rep. Mary Bono Mack's, D-Calif., district, where they haven't been on the air previously.
