The National Republican Congressional Committee has created websites that sound innocuous but pack a powerful punch against Democratic lawmakers representing seven key districts that leaned Republican in the last three presidential elections.

According to the Hill, the targeted seven are Ann Kirkpatrick and Ron Barber of Arizona, John Barrow of Georgia, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, Jim Matheson of Utah, and Nick Rahall of West Virginia.

The websites have names that sound like they are sponsored by the campaigns of the Democratic candidates, The Hill reports. AnnKirkpatrick.com and MathesonForUtah.com are two examples. But each site includes content attacking the Democratic lawmakers. The Kirkpatrick page, for example, calls her a "huge embarrassment to Arizona."

The sites offer readers the option to contribute money to the NRCC and to join its mailing list. The stealth action is part of the NRCC's Red Zone program, which targets the Democrats' most vulnerable incumbents.
