Crossroads Targets Five Senators in Radio Ads

In case anyone's missing all the campaign ads: Crossroads GPS launched radio spots today targeting potentially vulnerable Democratic senators up for reelection in 2014 in five states. The ads -- all running in states President Obama lost -- hit the president on his "massive tax increases," "even more debt," and "one-sided plan" on the fiscal cliff before telling listeners to call their senator and tell them "Washington needs to stop the spending and give us a balanced plan."

The advertisements target Sens. Mark Begich (Alaska), Mary Landrieu (Louisiana), Kay Hagan (North Carolina), and Tim Johnson (South Dakota). While a Crossroads press release indicates the West Virginia spot is aimed at Jay Rockefeller, the ad actually asks listeners to call Sen. Joe Manchin, and gives the phone number for the junior senator's office (Manchin just won reelection in November and won't face voters again for 6 more years).

The spots are backed by a $240,000 buy.
