The backdrop for this ad is a pair of controversies in Arkansas' and Alaska's contested US Senate races. In response to Democrats' tone deaf attacks, the NRSC goes for the throat:



Meanwhile, Democrats are still saddled with Obamacare -- which turned four years old today, and which Nancy Pelosi is still claiming will be a winner for her party in the fall.

And in Virginia, Obamacare was the reason Ken Cuccinelli rapidly closed a substantial deficit to narrowly lose this past November.
