Bleeding Heartland: DCCC not reserving ad time in Iowa (for now)
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Late last week the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee took
the unusual step of releasing detailed information about where they
plan to spend $34 million on television advertising this fall. Click
the link to read how much the DCCC says it will spend in each of 31
districts, only 12 of which are currently held by Democrats. As you
can see from the comment thread under this post at Swing State
Project, a lot of people are unhappy about winnable seats left off
this list. What about netroots hero Darcy Burner, who fell just short
in Washington's eighth district in 2006? Shouldn't Dan Seals get some
help in Illinois's tenth? Are we really going to give "Mean Jean"
Schmidt a pass in Ohio's second? I was disappointed not to see Iowa's
fourth district listed.
