The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will be returning to the Central Valley airwaves next week, with ads targeting Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Atwater, and Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Gold River. Get ready for a lot more of this.
The Democratic radio ads will start Monday and run throughout the week, attacking Denham and Lungren with similar language asserting the GOP incumbents "protect tax breaks for billionaires instead of Medicare for seniors and jobs for us." Similar themes are being presented in ads airing in a total of 25 Republican-held congressional districts nationwide, as part of what the DCCC operatives term "Drive for 25."
Party officials declined to say how much the ad campaign will cost, but noted that it will be accompanied by phone bank operations and other tactics.
