Dems reserve airtime ahead of election

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has reserved airtime for the final two weeks before the election in key congressional districts across the country.

It has banked more than $5.2 million worth of airtime in 50 television markets, according to a Republican consultant who tracks Democratic ad purchases.

The DCCC did not respond to a request for comment.

From upstate New York — where Rep. Bill Owens (D-N.Y.) faces a tough reelection fight — to Albuquerque, where the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is targeting freshman Rep. Harry Teague (D-N.M.), Democrats are flexing their financial muscle to protect vulnerable members.

“They’re reserving time where they know they need to be,” the Republican ad buyer told The Hill.

    Who can believe anything these liars have to say? And like another poster, I also just change the channel. Those democrats did not listen to the people and now they expect the people to listen to them. I serious doubt that people are going to forget what they did.

    When any ad comes on TV I switch the channel. I don’t let other people make up my mind and I don’t think the majority of people do either. To me both parties waste their money. The ads that really bother me are the attack ads. Like any of these people running for office are perfect. I vote for the person that best fits my beliefs and vision for my kids and grandkids not someone else’s fantasy world.

    Is there anything any incumbent can say that will be believed at this point?

    Panic button has already been pushed. Bloodbath! We are very angry out here. We are the “little people” who vote.
