Effort To Include Three TV Spots At A Total Cost of $2.4 Million

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today unveiled its plan to spend $2.4 million running three ads hitting vulnerable Republican House members – Bob Dold, Judy Biggert and Joe Walsh – in Chicagoland.

The first spot, whose cost will be shared by House Majority PAC and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is entitled “Loud.” The ad takes all three members to task: Joe Walsh for staking out extreme positions and making outlandish statements and Judy Biggert and Bob Dold for marching in step with Walsh. “Loud” will run in heavy rotation for two weeks.

“Loud” is available here:

The second and third spots will target Judy Biggert and Bob Dold, respectively, and will each run for a week, back to back, in conjunction with “Loud.”

The Judy Biggert-focused spot, which calls out Biggert’s attempt to hide her strong Republican bona fides, also begins running today.

The Bob Dold-focused spot will begin running next week.

“The bottom line is that as much as they’re willing to let Joe Walsh take the heat for his offensive outspokenness and extreme positions, Bob Dold and Judy Biggert are just as out of step with the middle class as Joe Walsh is,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC.
