Washington Post: NRCC Targeting Rep. Altmire Over Budget Vote

The Washington Post Reports:

The National Republican Congressional Committee is launching phone calls today targeting 10 vulnerable Democrats for voting against the GOP-backed bill funding the government for the rest of the fiscal year.

The calls seek to attach the vote to the Democrats’ support of the stimulus bill last Congress, saying the members voted for big spending two years ago and now start this Congress by opposing big cuts…

…Matheson, Chandler, Donnelly, Bishop and Heinrich all have the unenviable distinction of being targeted by both the Crossroads ads and the NRCC calls. The other Democrats targeted by the NRCC calls are Reps. Mike McIntyre (N.C.), Jason Altmire (Pa.), Larry Kissell(N.C.), Dan Boren (Okla.) and Nick Rahall (W.Va.).
