The National Republican Congressional Committee will release a television ad Tuesday targeting Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.) and his 2010 vote for the Democratic health care law. Roll Call obtained an early peek at the ad.
“There’s a cloud over our economy,” a narrator intones as storm clouds sweep on screen. “Tim Walz’s government takeover of health care,” he says in a foreboding voice. “Fear and uncertainty prevents new hiring. Steep fines and new taxes on families and businesses.”
The NRCC said the spot will cost more than $10,000 to air for three weeks on cable television.
Walz won his third term in his district in the southern part of the state with 49 percent of the vote.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
