The NRCC has also posted three new independent expenditure TV ads, including another one in Schilling's district. The new ad
hits Democratic nominee Cheri Bustos
for voting for renovation of a street near her home and a local country club, the same theme as the committee's first ad in the 17th District. The DCCC is also reprising an earlier theme in a new TV ad, according to a source tracking TV commercials. The new Democratic spot says Schilling changed "from one of us to one of them" and hits his support for the Ryan budget.
The NRCC also posted new ads against Reps. Mike McIntyre
, D-N.C., and Lois Capps
, D-Calif. The anti-McIntyre ad
slams his vote for the 2009 stimulus again, with a special emphasis on connecting that legislation to outsourcing to China. The ad on Capps
, meanwhile, juxtaposes the new taxes in the health care law with her late payment last month of taxes on years of rental income.
