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.

The legislation provides incentives for government contractors to pay a living wage and other benefits that would help low-income workers.
