WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is taking aim at six House Republicans for their votes earlier this year against President Obama's $787 billion stimulus package.
The committee is launching radio ads Monday against Rep. Brian Bilbray of California's 50th congressional district; Rep. Charlie Dent, Pennsylvania's 15th congressional district; Rep. Peter King, New York's 3rd congressional district; Rep. Thad McCotter, Michigan's 11th congressional district; Rep. Tom Rooney, Florida's 16th congressional district, and Alaska's Rep. Don Young. The ads will run for a week, according to the DCCC.
E-mails and automated calls about the six Republicans' stimulus votes are also part of the DCCC latest ad campaign.

The text of the radio ad targeting Rep. Peter King:
Did you know Congressman King voted against the Economic Recovery Plan? He opposed an $800 tax cut and opposed creating or saving 215,000 New York jobs. Tell King to put New York first.

The text of the automated call targeting Rep. Thad McCotter:
I'm calling from the DCCC to tell you how disappointed I am in Congressman Thad McCotter.
He keeps voting "no" on everything. Congressman McCotter even voted against the economic recovery plan, which is at work now to create or save over 109,000 Michigan jobs.
He voted "no" on transportation projects that mean good jobs right here – like widening Canton Center road.
He even voted against an $800 tax credit for Michigan couples.
I hope you'll join me in calling Congressman McCotter to tell him to stop voting "no," to stop standing in the way of getting the economy moving again.
