Huff Post: Obama-Allied Group Launches Supercommittee Ad Campaign Targeting GOPers
Huffington Post - November 16, 2011
In a reflection of how close the supercommittee is getting to its do or die moment, a Democratic-allied group is launching a series of television ads pressuring Republicans not to cut Medicare or Medicaid as part of any deficit reduction proposal.
The spots, put together by the Obama-allied Americans United for Change, are targeting Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) and Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) -- who are all running for Senate seats in 2012. They will air from Wednesday evening through the end of the week in several large media markets in those Senators home states: Boston; Reno, Nev.; and Billings and Missoula, Mont.
