“Fight Back California, a political action committee headed by former congresswoman and Obama administration official Ellen Tauscher,” released its first ad attacking Rep. Jeff Denham (R), who is “one of seven GOP members the group is hoping to defeat.” The ad goes after the congressman’s “vote in favor of a measure that would loosen restrictions on the banking industry. The measure, known as the Financial Choice Act of 2017, would repeal key provisions of the Dodd-Frank banking reforms. It was passed along party lines in the House but is awaiting action in the Senate.”

The spot is called “Jeff Denham Sold Us Out” and reflects the group’s efforts to attack its targets on the issues, not just to tie them to President Trump. “Other lawmakers the group hopes to help defeat are” Republican Reps. David Valadao (R-21), Steve Knight (R-25), Ed Royce (R-39), Mimi Walters (R-45), Dana Rohrabacher (R-48), and Darrell Issa (R-49). (Los Angeles Times)
