GOP Aims To “Reverse The Vote” Of 24 House Democrats

They voted for the health care bill. With enough money behind the opposition, could they be voted out of office next year?

Republicans aim to find out with a new effort to raise campaign funds for challengers to two dozen House Democrats who voted for the health care bill earlier this month.

Reverse The Vote Victory Committee was established this week with the Federal Election Commission as a joint fundraising committee that will collect contributions to distribute among 24 GOP challengers.

It’s still months until the first nominees will be formally selected in primary elections, so the committee for the time being will give campaign funds to 24 separate “congressional victory committees” that in turn will deliver the funds to party nominees once they are determined.
