Nation: DCCC Ads Still Flogging GOP on SCHIP Votes

Posted October 29, 2007 at 6:30pm

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is keeping the drumbeat going against Republican House Members who have voted against the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Beginning today, the DCCC will be airing drive time radio ads in the districts of Reps. Richard Baker (La.), Steve Chabot (Ohio), Kenny Hulshof (Mo.), Ric Keller (Fla.), Joe Knollenberg (Mich.), Peter Roskam (Ill.) and John Shadegg (Ariz.)

This is the fourth round of ads the DCCC has run in a variety of Congressional districts on the SCHIP issue.

“Across the country Republicans are feeling the heat for supporting President Bush instead of the health care for America’s kids,” DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen (Md.) said in a statement. “Since Republicans continue to play politics with children’s health care, we will continue to go district by district to hold them accountable for voting in lock step with President Bush.”
