It appears that selling out to the Leftists wasn’t such a good idea for the California GOP after all.
Democrats on Monday will begin airing a drive-time ad on Southern California radio stations targeting five Republican members of Congress who voted Thursday for the GOP healthcare plan.
The ad buy, currently scheduled to run for one week on news, sports and Spanish-language stations, is rare this early in the election cycle.
Democrats believe that the Republican vote for the unpopular healthcare bill will assist the party in its otherwise uphill effort to gain control of the House in 2018.
The Southern California ad from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee does not mention the members of Congress by name since voters in all of the districts will be within listening range.
The targets of the ad are five of the seven most vulnerable House Republicans in California — Darrell Issa of Vista, Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa, Mimi Walters of Irvine, Steve Knight of Palmdale and Ed Royce of Fullerton.
All of them serve in districts won by Hillary Clinton in November, as do Jeff Denham of Turlock and David Valadao of Hanford.
