NRCC Launches Ad Blitz

The latest NRCC buy also expands the committee's footprint into West Virginia's 3rd District, another less-reliable Republican opportunity -- despite the seat's Republican lean at the presidential level. Obama is deeply unpopular there, but West Virginia Democrats have largely been able to separate themselves from the national party, and Rep. Nick Rahall's survival in 2010 is a testament to that. The NRCC's anti-Rahall TV ad does its best to dispel district residents of that notion, using a photo of Rahall standing next to Obama and Nancy Pelosi and saying the congressman voted with Obama 94 percent of the time. View the NRCC ads in the four new districts detailed in this post. California's 24th District (Capps) Iowa's 1st District (Braley) Iowa's 2nd District (Loebsack) West Virginia's 3rd District (Rahall)
