NRCC ties eight Democrats to Obama

“Jim Matheson tries his best to hide his support of the Obama-[Nancy]Pelosi agenda, but he can’t deny that Obama has endorsed him and gave thousands to get him reelected,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek in a statement sent to Rep. Jim Matheson's (D-Utah) district.

The release riffs off Democrats' retreat in Virginia, at which they're huddling to plan their agenda for the current session.

It jokes that Democrats are at "Camp Wannataxya" this week, and gives "Camouflage merit badges" to the lawmakers targeted for what the NRCC calls attempts to hide from the president's policies.

The release was sent to the districts of Matheson, Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.), Ron Barber (Ariz.), Patrick Murphy (Fla.), John Barrow (Ga.), Collin Peterson (Minn.), Mike McIntyre (N.C.) and Nick Rahall (W.Va.). All are top pickup opportunities for the GOP going into 2014.
