The National Republican Congressional Committee is rolling out a slew of web ads, calling on House Democrats to condemn the IRS' targeting of conservative groups that filed for tax-exempt status in the last few years. However, a number of the targeted Democrats have issued such statements.

Boehner shoots down Republican member's criticism

(CNN) - The head of the House Republican campaign arm, Rep. Greg Walden, is getting pushback from both his own party and the White House for bucking the party line and saying the president was wrong to include entitlement changes in his budget proposal.

"I've made it clear that I disagree with what Chairman Walden said," Boehner said in his weekly press conference on Thursday, referring to the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Republicans go after House Dems on budget votes

(CNN) – Budget barbs are continuing to fly in congressional districts over the federal budget.

The National Republican Congressional Committee said Wednesday they were spending $40,000 to air television and web ads against Democrats for voting against the budget proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican House Budget chairman. The measure passed the GOP-controlled House in March, but was given no chance of passing the Democrat-led Senate.

Déjà vu: 2014 wars begin over Medicare, budget

(CNN) – Not wasting a minute, Democratic campaign groups in Congress are bringing Rep. Paul Ryan's budget plan–which he's set to release Tuesday–into the line of fire, attempting to make it a wedge issue in the 2014 midterm elections.

But Republicans are hitting back, attacking Democrats for their lack of a balanced budget one day before Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray is expected to make public the Senate's budget plan.

FIRST ON CNN: House GOP campaign arm goes online in the blame game over forced spending cuts

Washington (CNN) - As the impact of the forced spending cuts begins to kick in around the country, the blame game for who is responsible for the so-called "sequester" is filtering into Congressional campaigns on the web. House Republicans are running web banner ads criticizing 20 House Democrats who represent swing districts for not stopping what they call "Obama's sequester."

The House GOP's campaign arm cites these Democrats' opposition to the Republican plan to replace the across-the-board cuts as equivalent to backing the cuts.

Congressional committees report final 2012 fundraising

Washington (CNN) - The Democratic and Republican committees tasked with electing candidates to the House of Representatives are closing the book on the 2012 election cycle, with Democrats saying they brought in $184 million and Republicans raising $144 million.

The Democrats' figure was roughly $20 million more than they took in during the 2010 cycle, which saw them lose control of the House. In 2012, Democrats gained eight seats in the lower chamber, not enough to regain the majority.
