New Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers is the target of a Democratic campaign that criticizes her vote on the GOP House budget.
Ellmers is one a number of Republicans singled out by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in an effort that begins today with automated phone calls, web ads, live phone calls, and emails.
The text of the automated phone call reads: “Everyone knows we need to cut spending and reduce the deficit in Washington. And we can do that by reforming government, cutting wasteful spending, and getting rid of taxpayer subsidies for the big oil companies that are making record profits.”
“Instead, Representative Renee Ellmers voted for a partisan plan that will mean 20,000 fewer science researchers in labs and huge cuts in disease research. This makes it harder to compete with India and China and sets back life-saving research into cancer and other diseases. Her priorities don't make sense.”
“Call Renee Ellmers and tell her to cut taxpayer subsidies to Big Oil, not life-saving science and research to keep America ahead.”
