New Ad Hits House Democrats For National Security Vulnerabilities

The NRCC ad highlights the recent string of terrorist attacks that have taken place in America and across the world.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released a new six-figure digital ad buy targeting 10 House Democrats “for their weak position on national security,” according to a statement.

According to Politico:

“The ads go after Rep. Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01); Rep. Collin Peterson (MN-07); Rep. Rick Nolan (MN-08); Rep. Stephanie Murphy (FL-07); Rep. Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05); Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01); and Rep. Peter DeFazio (OR-04). The ads will also air in three open seats, Minnesota’s 1st District, Nevada’s 3rd District and Florida’s Republican-held 27th District.”

The NRCC ad, which is titled, “Terror,” starts with the ad’s narrator saying, “Terrorists determined to kill us, disrupt our way of life, threaten our freedom.”

“The world is a dangerous place, and yet Congressman Tom O’Halleran opposed allowing our military the necessary resources to keep America safe,” the narrator continued. “ISIS attacks at home and abroad. Bombings, shootings, trucks plowing through crowds. Now North Korea is threatening the U.S. with nuclear weapons.”

“We need real leadership in the fight against terror,” the narrator concluded. “Call Congressman O’Halleran. Tell him: support efforts to keep America safe.”

“House Democrats’ refusal to hold hostile actors accountable is simply irresponsible,” NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers said in a statement. “Our NRCC ads will ensure voters in their districts know that their representative voted to leave our country vulnerable.”
