The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is pushing House Democrats to commit to focus their campaigns on ObamaCare with a new tongue-in-cheek petition.
The NRCC is targeting vulnerable incumbents and candidates in a few dozen districts demanding that they promise to stand up for the law, which polling shows is fairly unpopular after its rocky rollout.
The petition cites promises from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) that their members will run on the controversial law. While Democratic leaders have insisted their rank-and-file members will run on the law in 2014, some Democrats have sought distance from parts of the law.
Republicans believe ObamaCare will be an albatross around Democrats' necks in 2014, and this is the latest sign the GOP plans to target the law as a top campaign issue this year.
