House Ma­jor­ity PAC, Amer­ica Votes Ac­tion Fund, Pri­or­it­ies USA, and Amer­ic­an Bridge launched Monday a new cam­paign aimed a boost­ing grass­roots en­gage­ment in the dis­trict of 12 GOP in­cum­bents who voted for the Amer­ic­an Health Care Act. “The groups will help mo­bil­ize com­munit­ies through on-the-ground grass­roots en­gage­ment and in­vest­ments in multi-plat­form me­dia cam­paigns.” The push is billed as a “Con­gres­sion­al Ac­count­ab­il­ity Cam­paign.”

Tar­geted dis­tricts: Reps. Martha Mc­Sally (AZ-02), Bri­an Mast (FL-18), Mario Diaz-Bal­art (FL-25), Bruce Poli­quin (ME-02), Jack Berg­man (MI-01), Fred Up­ton (MI-06), Tim Wal­berg (MI-07), Mike Bish­op (MI-08), Dave Trott (MI-11), Paul Ry­an (WI-01), Sean Duffy (WI-07) and Mike Galla­gh­er (WI-08).

FA­MIL­I­AR FOE. “Re­pub­lic­ans could hardly con­tain their ex­cite­ment after Hil­lary Clin­ton said she plans to get in­volved in the 2018 midterm con­tests, which Re­pub­lic­ans see as a chance to con­trast them­selves once more with Clin­ton, the two-time failed Demo­crat­ic pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate.”

“The GOP cam­paign arms of the two con­gres­sion­al cham­bers — the Na­tion­al Re­pub­lic­an Sen­at­ori­al Com­mit­tee and the Na­tion­al Re­pub­lic­an Con­gres­sion­al Com­mit­tee — both plan to fun­draise off Clin­ton in the com­ing days and weeks. … The NR­CC said it is set to use Clin­ton in states like Min­nesota, Maine and Ohio against vari­ous Demo­crat­ic can­did­ates.” (Wash­ing­ton Ex­am­iner)
