Democrats Pour $1.4 Million Into 7 Tight Races

By    |   Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014 05:04 PM

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will spend $1.4 million on ads for seven tight races as the midterm elections speed to a conclusion, the Washington Post reports.

Among the recipients of the DCCC's fourth-quarter largesse is U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford, who is running against Republican state Assemblyman Cresent Hardy in a race for Nevada's 4th Congressional District, and who will receive $360,000 in new ad spending, the Post notes.

The new ad spending for Horsford comes in direct response to the $935,000 spent by the conservative Crossroads GPS Super-PAC, which is fighting for Republican victories around the nation.

Other districts with Democratic incumbents targeted include Illinois'10th ($280,000); California's 52nd ($265,000); West Virginia's 3rd ($257,000); California's 24th (nearly $100,000); Georgia's 12th ($77,000); and Minnesota's 8th ($74,000), the Post notes.

In Nevada, journalist John Ralston told National Review Online that early voting portends a tough outing for Horsford, who is serving his first term. While the district is a tough proposition for Republicans, they are ahead in early voting tabulations by about 1,400 votes in portions of Clark County, an area that is a Democratic stronghold, NRO notes.

As the spending increases in Nevada, Horsford got a boost this week when former President Bill Clinton visited to campaign for him, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

"A bunch of your life is shaped by people who aren't on the ballot when we're voting for presidents," Clinton said in rallying Nevada voters. "This is a big deal."

He added: "What's really on the ballot is whether we go back to a trickle-down economy and whether only the rich get the benefits or whether we have shared opportunity and shared responsibility and the same rules apply to one another."
