The NRCC’s independent expenditure arm is putting $350,000 into the fight. Some of the money will go into ads focusing on out-of-control spending in Washington, taking advantage of Hare’s recent comments that the national debt a “myth,” an NRCC source told The Hill.

The district voted 57 percent for President Obama in 2008 and 51 percent for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004.
