The National Republican Congressional Committee on Friday announced that it will spend an additional $28 million between now and November’s midterm elections to run TV ads as part of its push to win back the House majority.
The NRCC, which is the House GOP’s re-election arm, says its new financial infusion will bring the committee's total investment this cycle to $80 million.
The committee says roughly three-quarters of the new spending will go towards targeting Democratic-held seats, including five new targets. Those districts are Colorado’s 8th Congressional District, Ohio’s 13th District, Texas’ 28th District, Virginia’s 7th District, and Washington State’s 8th District.
"We are continuing to expand the playing field deeper into Democrat-held territory and look forward to prosecuting the case against every one of these vulnerable Democrats," NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer emphasized. "We have the message, the candidates and the resources needed to retake the majority and this investment will help us deliver on our mission."
