The big guns are coming out now. In what is already one of the most expensive congressional races in the country, North Carolina’s 7th District is getting another infusion of super PAC money from national interests.
The Congressional Leadership Fund’s first ad against incumbent Democrat Rep. Mike McIntyre is being released Friday, at a cost of $575,000. Following the narrative of ads by other groups supporting Republican challenger David Rouzer, this one tries to tie McIntyre to liberals in Washington, faults him for voting for the stimulus bill and for what it says is his failure to pass any of his own bills into law.
YG Network, one of the outside interest groups injecting huge amounts of money into the race between Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre and Republican challenger David Rouzer – more than $740,000 so far – is out with a new TV commercial.
The ad, which began airing in the Triangle and Wilmington on Thursday, picks up on the dominant theme of the national Republican effort to unseat McIntyre: that the conservative Democrat is a liberal henchman for President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The spot features cartoon characters playing football.
“A master of the sneak, Mike McIntyre acts one way in North Carolina but in Washington he stars on the liberal team,” the ad says. It concludes with a heroic image of a cartoon Rouzer: “Vote for young, conservative star David Rouzer.”
YG Network reports spending nearly $1.3 million on this spot, which runs from Thursday to Nov. 5, and on another recent spot.
