NRCC targets Democrats on votes against Ryan budget

The committee is spending $40,000 on the ads, three of which will run on television in the districts of Reps. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.), Nick RahallNick RahallWest Virginia is no longer Clinton country Solution needed: Rail congestion is stifling economic growth Lobbying World MORE (D-W.Va.) and Ron BarberRon BarberTen House seats Dems hope Trump will tilt House conducts moment of silence for Tucson shooting anniversary Dem files Ethics complaint on Benghazi panel MORE (D-Ariz.).

The ad running against Peterson charges that he's "been in Washington for too long, and we're paying the price."

It says that "instead of voting to balance the budget, he voted to spend $1.8 trillion on ObamaCare." Peterson, along with the other targeted Dems — and every other Democrat in the House — opposed the Ryan budget, which would have balanced the budget in 10 years by repealing President Obama's healthcare reform law and instituting $4.6 trillion in spending cuts.

The NRCC is running a similar ad against McIntyre, Rahall and Barber, while Reps. Jim MathesonJim MathesonBottom Line Washington's lobby firms riding high Big names free to lobby in 2016 MORE (D-Utah), Bill Owens (D-N.Y.) and Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.) are all targeted by online ads.
