GOP Targeting Black Friday Shoppers in 5 Key Democratic States

By    |   Tuesday, 26 Nov 2013 04:11 PM

Black Friday shoppers in five states with important congressional elections next year may find fliers on their car windshields this week in an extensive campaign by the GOP against Democrats backing Obamacare.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee began its online and grassroots effort on Tuesday — focusing on voters in Alaska, Louisiana, Georgia, Iowa, and Michigan, ABC News reports.

Only two Democrats in the five states are seeking re-election, Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana and Sen. Mark Begich in Alaska, while the remaining seats are open.

Committee officials would only describe the campaign to ABC as a "significant five figure" advertising buy "targeting specific audiences on popular shopping and social media sites."

The flier targeting Begich, for instance, describes the senator as a "Black Friday Sell Out!!!" and then says, "Mark Begich’s Obamacare," ABC reports.

On the back, the document reads, "Mark Begich Misled Alaskans" — saying, in candy-cane print, "Alaskans Deserve a Refund."

Another "Black Friday Sell Out" is Rep. Bruce Braley, who is seeking an open Senate seat in Iowa, according to the NSRC. That position is being touted in an online ad scheduled to run on Facebook and other social media sites.

The spot continues, "Bruce Braley misled Iowans about Obamacare," ABC reports.

Viewers who click on the spot are then sent to NSRC's page, where they can demand a "refund."

Meanwhile, Matt Canter, deputy executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, told ABC that he had not seen the GOP spots.

But he defended the Affordable Care Act, considered President Barack Obama's signature domestic legislative achievement.

"Every single Republican Senate candidate wants to go back to letting insurance companies discriminate against pre-existing conditions, charge women more for care, and kick people off their coverage when they get sick," Canter said.

"That position may poll well among insurance company executives and the tea party, but not the vast majority of voters.”
