NRCC Launches New Ads Against Chandler, Critz, Kreitlow

September 4, 2012

The National Republican Congressional Committee announced three new independent expenditure TV ads Tuesday, including two new ads continuing a TV campaign against a pair of Democratic congressmen and a defensive effort aimed at the challenger to freshman Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis.

The NRCC's new ads targeting Democratic Reps. Ben Chandler and Mark Critz continue to hit similar notes the committee struck in earlier ads against the two survivors of 2010. Keith Rothfus, Critz's Republican challenger in Pennsylvania's 12th District, said at the Republican National Convention that his race would be all about Obamacare, and while he's introducing himself to voters, Rothfus is getting an assist from the NRCC, which is hitting Critz for voting against Obamacare repeal bills in its second of two ads released there. The NRCC's ad in Kentucky's 6th District ties Chandler to President Obama, who is deeply unpopular in the Bluegrass State, with clips of Chandler speaking at an Obama rally in 2008.

The GOP committee also unveiled an ad against Democratic state Sen. Pat Kreitlow in Wisconsin's 7th District, just after the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released an ad hitting Duffy there. The Republican ad links Kreitlow to a litany of tax increases -- and a legislative pay raise, for good measure -- during his tenure in Wisconsin.

The NRCC filed information on the buys with the Federal Election Commission last Friday. The committee has now spent over $400,000 on independent expenditures opposing Critz and nearly $300,000 against Chandler.
