NRCC Targets Georgia Democrat During Masters Tournament

April 6, 2012
It's an election year, so even the Masters couldn't escape politics.

The National Republican Congressional Committee is trying to capitalize on frustration with President Obama with a new campaign depicting Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) as one and the same with his party's leaders.

The NRCC has launched a roughly $40,000 golf-themed TV ad campaign in the Augusta area, where Barrow recently moved. It also took out a billboard ad a few miles away from the golf course and premiered a new website, BarrowObama.com, all linking Barrow to Obama.

"Barrow and Obama - the wrong pairing for Georgia," the TV ad says (check it out below).

The TV ad, which will run on broadcast and cable networks in the area, and the billboard launched Thursday and will be up for a week, according to the NRCC.

In a statement, Barrow said: "I'm not surprised at all to see my independent record distorted by partisan Washington insiders," according to the Savannah Morning News. "This week, folks in Augusta are enjoying the Masters ... and spending time with their children during spring break. ... They don't want to be bothered with partisan ads like this."
