With just 84 days left until the Nov. 8 midterm elections, House Republicans are preparing to smother the Democrats with a whopping $180 million ad blitz, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.
“There will be no mercy for every Democrat who voted to send 87,000 tax officials after the working class, raise their taxes and donate to their wealthy donors. They will regret this vote when their constituents send them packing in November,” Republican National Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) told Breitbart News exclusively on Monday.
Sources familiar with tracking media ad buys told Breitbart News that between the NRCC and the Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) — the House GOP leadership’s main super PAC — Republicans have booked nearly 180 million in ad buys across the country in the fall. As the midterm elections approach and Republicans gain even more momentum, these sources add, this massive ad buying hammering Democrats in their districts is likely to increase significantly.
The blitz will begin airing on television at the end of August and will hit vulnerable Democrats from Labor Day through Election Day. Given that every House Democrat voted for the so-called “Cutting Inflation Act”, a bill that does not reduce inflation but in fact represents a massive shift towards the green agenda of the radical left, expect ads to focus largely on Democrats. decision to vote to raise taxes and employ new IRS agents to conduct large-scale audits of Americans.
Some specific Democrats who are definitely on the target slate include Reps. Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ), Jared Golden (D-ME), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Matt Cartwright (D-PA) and Cindy Axne. (D-IA).
For Republicans to regain a majority in the U.S. House, they only need to flip a handful of Democratic control seats — and each of those districts above was carried by former President Donald Trump in 2020. While these ads will particularly hammer those Democrats, they will also ripple deep into Democratic territory, including many of the districts President Joe Biden won in 2020, some by substantial margins.
