The DCCC “launched a new ad digital ad campaign targeting” Reps. Ryan Costello (R-06), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-08), and Pat Meehan (R-07) “over the GOP’s tax plan, and a new microsite calling for people to record videos over why they oppose the tax plan. Save My Care launched a digital video ad against Costello as part of a national ad buy.

“The DCCC’s ads will be running on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram through the end of November directing people to local news stories about the tax plan’s passage. … The DCCC’s microsite,, directs people to ‘record a quick video and tell us why you oppose Paul Ryan and Donald Trump’s atrocious tax scam.’ The DCCC will be pushing the website on google search ads. In the show of how important buying URLs can be, the DCCC bought a slate of URLs that otherwise would likely be used by Republicans to push the tax plan.”

“Costello’s campaign responded to the ad going on the offensive against Costello’s likely opponent next year” Air Force veteran Chrissy Houlahan (D), “tying her to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and bringing up a report tying Houlahan’s former company to sweatshops.” (Politics PA)
