The RGA on Friday is launching “a new digital campaign targeting Democrat governors on their anti-jobs, anti-business policies. … This digital campaign will highlight news, research and insights on Democrat governors’ failed records and continued efforts to push anti-jobs legislation.”
The ads target the four incumbent governors up for reelection: Govs. Dan Malloy (D) of Connecticut, Gina Raimondo (D) of Rhode Island, Tom Wolf (D) of Pennsylvania, and Kate Brown (D) of Oregon. Also two term-limited governors in DGA leadership: Gov. Jay Inslee (D) of Washington and Terry McAuliffe (D) of Virginia). (release)
The ads come after reports in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Politico that Democrats running for reelection in 2018, as well as leadership at the DGA, hope to emphasize jobs ahead of the midterms.
