Dems spend $134,000 on Andrew Roraback Attack ad
Andrew Roraback is up with the first TV ad of his 5th District Congress campaign.
According to a Federal Elections Commission posting, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has spent $134,431 on a media buy intended to attack 5th District Republican candidate Andrew Roraback.
The DCCC announced Sept. 12 that it spent a total of $2,109,501.58 on media for or against candidates across the country, including Nevada’s Joe Heck, Robert Schilling of Illinois, Francisco Canseco from Texas and Chris Gibson from New York.
Roraback was among the group of 16 candidates targeted by the DCCC in the $2 million expenditure.
The DCCC has endorsed Roraback’s Democratic rival, Elizabeth Esty, and has hammered the Republican repeatedly with press releases and web videos calling Roraback a “Tea Party Republican” and suggesting that he “has now received his marching orders from Washington Republicans including their extreme agenda to end Medicare.”
The FEC filing specifies the candidate the media buy is intended to target is Roraback. Though that ad has not yet been released, a hit piece on Nevada’s Joe Heck, produced by Great American Media, the same company hired to produce the Roraback ad, was posted Wednesday.
