GOP Campaign Arm Launches Media Blitz Against Dems Who Opposed Violent Crime Bill As Crisis In DC Spirals
February 9, 2024
FIRST ON FOX: Republicans are launching a massive assault against House Democrats who opposed overturning Washington, D.C.’s soft-on-crime criminal code last year as the city’s crime crisis continues to spiral.
Friday marks the one-year anniversary since 173 Democrats voted against H.J. Res. 26, a bill that nullified the overhaul of Washington, D.C.’s criminal code by the city council that softened penalties for violent crime offenders — a fact the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is amplifying in its new media blitz.
The NRCC’s media campaign is targeting 14 of the 173 House Democrats who opposed the legislation — which President Biden ultimately broke with his party to sign — and are at risk of losing their swing-district seats in elections this year as Republicans aim to bolster their narrow majority in the chamber.
Those being targeted include Reps. Chris Deluzio, D-Pa., Dina Titus, D-Nev., Emilia Sykes, D-Ohio, Frank Mrvan, D-Ind., Gabriel Vasquez, D-N.M., Hillary Scholten, D-Mich., Jahana Hayes, D-Conn., Mary Peltola, D-Alaska, Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., Mike Levin, D-Calif., Seth Magaziner, D-R.I., Steven Horsford, D-Nev., Susan Wild, D-Pa., and Val Hoyle, D-Ore.
Candidate-specific ads will run in each of the 14 districts highlighting their votes on the legislation.
