Latham Targeted

Politico: Latham Targeted for 2010

"The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched a radio advertising blitz against 28 House Republicans who voted against the stimulus package last week," notes Josh Kraushaar at The Politico's Scorecard. "The list of targeted Republicans usually approximates the party’s top targets for the upcoming election. Given the Democrats’ success over the past two elections, the list shows there aren’t too many pickup opportunities left for the majority party."

The companion article lists the list and gives us some ad copy:
The following ad is the districts of Representatives Roscoe Bartlett (MD-06), Lincoln Diaz-Balart (FL-21), Shelley Moore Capito (WV-02), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Elton Gallegy (CA-24), Tom Latham (IA-04), Donald Manzullo (IL-16), Thad McCotter (MI-11), Dave Reichert (WA-08), James Sensenbrenner (WI-05), Bill Young (FL-10), and Don Young (AK-AL):

Did you know Congressman Thad McCotter opposed over $526 million to modernize crumbling Michigan schools, but supported building new schools in Iraq? Times are tough, tell Thad McCotter to put American jobs first.

So perhaps the DCCC is taking my advice on at least one half of my two part prep for redistricting plan. Maybe they'll follow up on part two?
