The National Republican Congressional Committee is launching a new wave of ads in nine districts, targeting seven Democratic incumbents and a pair of GOP-held seats.


The ads go after Democratic Reps. Ron BarberRonald (Ron) Sylvester BarberKavanaugh nomination a make or break moment to repeal Citizens United Latina Leaders to Watch 2018 Principles and actions mean more than Jeff Flake’s words MORE (Ariz.), John BarrowJohn Jenkins BarrowRepublican wins Georgia secretary of state runoff to replace Kemp The most important runoff election is one you probably never heard of Our democracy can’t afford to cut legal aid services from the budget MORE (Ga.), William Enyart (Ill.), Collin Peterson (Minn.), Rick Nolan (Minn.), Tim BishopTimothy (Tim) Howard BishopDem candidate 'struck by the parallels' between Trump's rise and Hitler's Dems separated by 29 votes in NY House primary Flint residents hire first K Street firm MORE (N.Y.) and Nick RahallNick Joe RahallWe shouldn't allow politics to impede disaster relief Break the cycle of partisanship with infant, child health care programs Clinton mulls role in 2018 midterms MORE (W.Va.). Two other spots attack Gwen Graham (D), who's running against Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.), and former Iowa state Sen. Staci Appel (D), who's running for retiring Rep. Tom Latham's (R-Iowa) seat.

The ads largely focus on tying red-district Democrats to President Obama, attacking Graham for ObamaCare and accusing Barber, Rahall and Barrow of kowtowing to the president. Nolan is "dangerously liberal," Peterson "has changed," Appel is "wasteful," Enyart is a stooge of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Bishop is "one of Congress's most corrupt" in the ads.
