NRCC launches ad against Barrow in Georgia

The National Republican Congressional Committee is up with an ad attacking Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.), seeking to weaken his numbers ahead of what they're hoping will be a competitive race.

The ad spotlights an Augusta mother tying Barrow to President Obama.

"When John Barrow votes with Obama to increase spending it is jeopardizing the future of our children. John Barrow votes with Barack Obama on every issue that's important to us here in Georgia. He gets wrapped up in the politics of Washington and forgets about the constituents back home. We have to choose somebody else," says Amy Parris in the ad.

Barrow, the last white Democratic congressman left in the Deep South, has managed to hold onto his seat by finding distance from the national party. Republicans are hopeful that they've finally found a candidate, businessman Rick Allen (R), who might be able to beat him this fall.
