The Demo­crat­ic Con­gres­sion­al Cam­paign Com­mit­tee is launch­ing a rob­ocall cam­paign in 18 dis­tricts, con­nect­ing Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ates to the pos­sible law­suit against Pres­id­ent Obama over the im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act. The call will give listen­ers “a spe­cial Wash­ing­ton waste­ful spend­ing alert” and cri­ti­cize Re­pub­lic­ans for spend­ing “mil­lions of tax­pay­er dol­lars on a frivol­ous law­suit.”

The calls will tar­get 18 Re­pub­lic­an in­cum­bents: Reps. Jeff Den­ham (R-CA 10), Dav­id Valadao (R-CA 21), Mike Coff­man (R-CO 06), Steve King (R-IA 04), Rod­ney Dav­is (R-IL 13), Andy Barr (R-KY 06), Ren­ee Ellmers (R-NC 02), Lee Terry (R-NE 02), Frank Lo­Bi­ondo (R-NJ 02), Steve Pearce (R-NM 02), Joe Heck (R-NV 03), Mi­chael Grimm (R-NY 11), Chris Gib­son (R-NY 19), Tom Reed (R-NY 23), Bill John­son (R-OH 06), Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA 08), Scott Ri­gell (R-VA 02), and Dav­id McKin­ley (R-WV 01).

DCCC LAUNCHES CAM­PAIGN FOR 1 MIL­LION COM­MIT­MENTS. The DCCC is also start­ing a cam­paign to get 1 mil­lion sup­port­ers to com­mit to vote in Novem­ber. The group will col­lect writ­ten com­mit­ments and then send them back to voters be­fore Elec­tion Day to re­mind them to go to the polls. Stud­ies have shown the tac­tic, which was used suc­cess­fully by Obama in 2012, is about as ef­fect­ive as knock­ing on doors in per­son. (The Hill)
