DCCC launches campaign against ‘vulnerable’ House Ag Republicans

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced late last week it will launch a digital advertising campaign against House Republicans it considers vulnerable, including several who serve on the House Agriculture Committtee: Rodney Davis of Illinois, Don Bacon of Nebraska and Jim Hagedorn of Minnesota.

The list also includes Rep. Steve King of Iowa, who served on the House Agriculture Committee until the Republican leadership removed him over his comments on race.

In its announcement, the DCCC said the government shutdown was the motivation for the campaign that “will be geo-targeted and featured on Facebook for swing voters as the DCCC gears up for an aggressive 2020 election campaign.”

“When you work hard to keep our country safe, you should receive your paycheck, period,” said DCCC spokesperson Cole Leiter.

“But now, workers who risk their lives every day are about to miss another paycheck as Republicans in Washington continue to play games with the lives of hardworking Americans, and their families’ livelihoods and financial security. Republicans’ recklessness threatens our national security, and it’s critical that voters know exactly who is putting Americans’ lives at risk in pursuit of a wasteful and deeply unpopular partisan agenda.”
