Radio Ads to Attack GOP Incumbents for Supporting Bush Economic Policy

Americans United for Change, a group founded in 2005 to oppose Social Security privatization, will launch radio ads tomorrow attacking GOP incumbents for supporting President Bush's economic policies.

The ads will air for a week, and will go after Sens. Norm Coleman (D-Minn.) and John Sununu (R-N.H.) in their home states, as well as Reps. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), Don Young (R-Alaska), Rep. Jon Porter (R-Nev.), and Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) in media markets in their home districts.

The GOP incumbents are top targets of the Democratic Party, as the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has already taken aim at Coleman and Sununu in television ads, and the DCCC has listed the House incumbents' districts as targets on its website.

The ads will say that each candidate is "two peas in a pod" with President Bush for supporting the Iraq war and "

tax giveaways for the wealthy and big oil companies." The ads will also criticize the Fed's financing of the Bear Stearns buyout.
