A super PAC closely aligned with House Republican leadership announced it’s launching a six-figure digital ad campaign Friday targeting Democrats who promised voters they would oppose Nancy Pelosi as leader of their party but voted for her for speaker anyway.

Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) is targeting six freshman Democrats who campaigned on the promise that they would either oppose Pelosi’s speakership or who endorsed “new leadership” for the Democratic Party in the House.

The Democrat-controlled districts targeted by CLF include: CA-39 (Gil Cisneros), KS-03 (Sharice Davids), MI-11 (Haley Stevens), MN-03 (Dean Phillips), NJ-03 (Andy Kim), and TX-07 (Lizzie Fletcher).

The ad targeting Phillips, for example, includes a clip from a debate in which Phillips is asked whether he would vote for Pelosi to be the Democrats’ leader, if elected.

“No,” Phillips said to the moderator. “It’s time for new leadership on both sides of the aisle.”

“Newly elected Democrats told voters things would be different in Washington, but with their very first vote they caved to party bosses and supported Nancy Pelosi for speaker,” Dan Conston, president of CLF, said in a statement. “While it takes some politicians years to sell out, it took these Democratic members just one day to break their bond with voters back home.”
