The Republican election machine is mobilizing with strength to take out six vulnerable House Democrats. Conservative groups are putting their money where their mouths are in the races – to the tune of up to $9.1 million in the last month alone, Politico reports.

GOP, hits, vulnerable, democratsAnd you ain’t seen nothing yet. More than a dozen conservative groups are doling out $12 million for TV ads that will and have run between Sept. 30 and Election Day, a source tells Politico.

The sagging six:

Reps. Alan Grayson and Suzanne Kosmas
of Florida. “I know there are a lot of attractive seats out there, but these are two particularly attractive seats,” says Jason Roe, a GOP strategist.

Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper of Pennsylvania. “This looks like an R pick up, and the conservative groups understand that,” says Terry Madonna, director of the Franklin & Marshall College Poll.

Rep. Phil Hare (pictured) of Illinois. “Phil Hare doesn’t deserve re-election, … voting with Nancy Pelosi 99 percent of the time,” an ad from the American Future Fund explains.

Rep. Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire. “Carol Shea-Porter is spending all of her energy trying to make Frank Guinta an unacceptable alternative,” James Pindell, political director for TV station WMUR, says. “And these outside groups have helped keep the focus back on Shea-Porter and the national political environment.”

Rep. Frank Kratovil of Maryland. The National Republican Congressional Committee has spent $162,000 so far against Kratovil, who barely beat Republican state Sen. Andy Harris in 2008 and is trying to do so again. The GOP views the district as one of their best chances next month, with John McCain having drawn 59 percent of the vote there in 2008.
