(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.
