House Republicans on Monday reportedly launched a six-figure digital ad campaign aimed at seven Democrats, charging they threaten America's national security, the National Republican Congressional Committee announced Monday.

The ads will target target freshman Reps. Tom O'Halleran of Arizona, Stephanie Murphy of Florida, Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, as well as veterans like Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Pete DeFazio of Oregon, The Hill reported.

The ads are also aimed at Democratic Reps. Rick Nolan of Minnesota and Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire.

According to The Hill, the campaign is also running ads in three districts where lawmakers are leaving: Reps. Tim Walz, a Minnesota Democrat running for governor; retiring Florida Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, whose district went heavily for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton; and Jackie Rosen of Nevada, a freshman Democrat running to unseat GOP Sen. Dean Heller.

"House Democrats' refusal to hold hostile actors accountable is simply irresponsible," said NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers in the group's release. "Our NRCC ads will ensure voters in their districts know that their representative voted to leave our country vulnerable."

In one of the ads, the narrator says, "Terrorists determined to kill us, disrupt our way of life, threaten our freedom: the world is a dangerous place, and yet Congressman Tom O'Halleran opposed allowing our military the necessary resources to keep America safe."

"[Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] attacks at home and abroad, bombings, shootings, trucks plowing through crowds. Now North Korea is threatening the U.S. with nuclear weapons. We need real leadership in the fight against terror. Call Congressman O'Halleran. Tell him: Support efforts to keep America safe."

Democrats called the attacks baseless.

"This sad attempt by House Republicans to change the conversation away from healthcare and tax cuts for the rich doesn't even get the facts right," said Tyler Law, a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

"The NRCC should take a minute to review the voting records of their opponents before embarrassing themselves like this."
