The Republican-aligned Crossroads GPS is making major buys targeting five House Democrats.

{mosads}The purchases, totaling $3.1 million, are aimed at knocking down Democratic Reps. Ami Bera (Calif.), Scott Peters (Calif.), Brad Schneider (Ill.) Bill Enyart (Ill.) and Nick Rahall (W.Va.). All are top Republican targets this fall.

Bera faces the largest buy — almost $900,000 in his Sacramento media market. All buys from the issue advocacy group start within the week.

Crossroads usually spends most of its time and money on Senate races, though it has dipped into House races on occasion. Republicans are poised to pick up a few seats this fall, but some GOP operatives have worried that Democratic candidates’ and official committees’ big fundraising edge could put those gains at risk. Crossroads seems to be looking to make sure that doesn’t happen.
