Nation: DCCC Launches Radio Ads on Stimulus Vote

Posted February 2, 2009 at 6:32pm

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced Monday that it has launched radio ads in the districts of 28 targeted GOP Members. The radio spots criticize Republicans for voting against the stimulus bill that passed the House last week.

The series of four spots, “Putting Families First,” will air for seven days starting this morning. The media blitz includes three different variations on an economic recovery message, plus an ad on children’s health care in targeted districts across the county.

“Did you know Congressman Thad McCotter opposed over $526 million to modernize crumbling Michigan schools, but supported building new schools in Iraq? Times are tough — tell Thad McCotter to put American jobs first,” says an announcer in one of the ads targeting the Michigan Republican.

The committee also announced it will e-mail 3 million voters and set up person-to-person phone calls with almost 100,000 people.
