GOP Targets Vulnerable House Democrats

    The NRCC under Tom Emmer has brought the battle to the Democrats. They won't get a free pass in 2022.

    FNC: "As part of its push to regain the House of Representatives majority in the 2022 midterm elections, the congressional GOP's reelection arm is launching a new ad blitz targeting five northeast House Democrats who may likely face challenging reelections next year. The digital, radio and billboard campaign by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), which was shared first with Fox News on Wednesday, targets Reps. Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania (PA-08), Jared Golden of Maine (ME-02), Jahana Hayes of Connecticut (CT-05), Tom Malinowski of New Jersey (NJ-07) and Chris Pappas of New Hampshire (NH-01).

    "Jared Golden's congressional district — the largest east of the Mississippi River — contains a number of small cities but is mostly rural. Former President Trump won the district in 2016 — and captured it again by seven points in his 2020 reelection defeat. Golden, a Marine veteran who deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq, narrowly won the district in 2018 as the Democrats recaptured the House majority for the first time in eight years in a wave election. He became the first member of Congress elected by ranked-choice voting. The congressman captured a second term last November by seven points, outperforming now-President Biden in the district by nearly 30,000 votes."

    "This is a warning to every vulnerable Democrat in the Northeast: Their socialist agenda will cost them their jobs in 2022," NRCC chairman Rep. Tom Emmer, R-MN, said. "House Republicans are on offense throughout the country and will ensure voters have a clear understanding of Democrats' damaging socialist policies." The Democrats are being hit and hard.

    The voice over in the ad made for Maine charges that "Maine lobstermen trusted Jared Golden, but Jarden Golden sold them out. Golden is supported by the same radical environmentalists who back building wind turbines that threaten Maine's lobster industry."

    The narrator then tells voters to "tell Jared Golden to stand with Maine lobstermen, not special interests."

    Another digital ad and billboard take aim at Tom Malinowski over reports he bought and sold $1 million in stock in companies involved in the COVID response. He made big money over an American public health crisis.

    "As our economy collapsed from the coronavirus, Tom Malinowski got rich. Malinowski broke the law and tried to hide it. Tell Tom Malinowski stop putting personal profits ahead of New Jersey voters and businesses," the ad says.

    Malinowski has said there's no charge of trading on insider information and insists the stories are based on a late filing of campaign reports. The congressman won election in 2018 by five points but earned a second term last November with just a one-point victory. He, like the others named above, should start getting his resume ready.
