File under Never Too Early: Americans for Prosperity, a national conservative advocacy organization, is placing ads against two House Democrats based on their pro-Obamacare votes.
Over $600,000 will be spent on spots airing in the districts of Richard Nolan of Minnesota and Ann McLane Kuster of New Hampshire, according to AFP. The new spots put AFP’s total Obamacare TV ad-spending for 2013 at roughly $16 million, money that comes in part from the billionaire Koch brothers.
Obamacare is “the lie of the year,” the narrator declares in the ad targeting Nolan. Implicit in that statement is President Barack Obama’s promise that Americans would be able to keep their health insurance and doctor, no matter what.
This is just the start of the blitz against pro-Obamacare Democrats. As Democrats' popularity has plummeted over the last two months in accordance with the disastrous Obamacare rollout, they've become much more electorally vulnerable.
These ads are going out against House members, but the Senate is what conservatives really have their eyes on. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, and Kay Hagan of North Carolina lead the pack of most vulnerable Democrats in the Senate. They're the big prizes in 2014, and the seats that Republicans will need to have if they're to take back the Senate.
