Americans for Prosperity, a well-funded conservative group backed by the Koch brothers, is launching a major ad campaign attacking two vulnerable Senate Democrats on ObamaCare.

"So far the ObamaCare rollout has been a perfect demonstration of inept big government. The actual impact of the law has been dwindling choices, rising premiums, and millions of Americans losing the plans they were told they could keep," AFP spokesman Levi Russell said. "Politicians like Hagan and Landrieu's response has been to double down on this disaster, while making sure political allies and members of Congress get special treatment under the law. Our job is to hold them accountable for that.”
Both Hagan and Landrieu are top GOP targets — Republicans need to defeat one, and possible both, of them if they hope to win Senate control next year.
