(CNN) – Democratic group House Majority PAC set its sights on one freshman and one veteran congressman with new ads to be released Friday in their continued effort to return control of the House of Representatives to the Democrats.
Two Republican lawmakers, freshman Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy and nine-term California Rep. Dan Lungren, are the subjects of new cable spots set to air during the August recess. The 30-second commercials were produced to “hold vulnerable House Republicans accountable” for “misguided priorities” and “votes to sell out the middle class,” according to a statement released by the political action committee.
In the six-figure buy, ads that feature waterfront mansions and corporate jets ask viewers to consider the fate of those who can’t afford such luxuries.
“Maybe you live here, or own one of these,” an announcer says. “If so, Congressman Lungren just voted to give you a big tax cut and for tax loopholes to keep corporate profits sky high.”
“But what about the rest of us?”
Accusing the congressman of voting “to end Medicare as we know it and to protect profits for companies that ship jobs to China,” the commercial closes with a final thought:
“If you have to make millions to get our congressman’s attention, it’s time to find a new congressman.”
The first wave of ad attacks began Friday, August 12 and targeted three freshman House representatives: Tim Griffin of Arkansas, Scott Tipton of Colorado and Chip Cravaack of Minnesota.
