Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus is inviting House and Senate Democrats in targeted reelection bids to make the case for ObamaCare.

“We are going to invite them and give them an opportunity to come to the RNC and set up the press conference and tell the media and all the people in their district why it is that they believe ObamaCare is great for this country and great for their constituents,” Priebus said on Fox News’s “On the Record” Tuesday night.

Priebus said the RNC will send out press releases and invitations to the event on Wednesday.

The RNC will also purchase domain names for senators who show up. For example, Priebus said, if Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) attends, the Arkansas Democrat will get “Pryor loves obamacare.com.” 

About 20 Democratic lawmakers will be invited, Priebus said, including Sens. Mark Udall (Colo.), Dick Durbin (Ill.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.) and Kay Hagan (N.C.).
