On Saturday, the National Republican Congressional Committee filed an independent expenditure report detailing new television ad buys in 22 districts. (A Monday report added one more district.) Most of those ads are now available. Each is posted below (where available), along with the approximate size of the buy. (Note that these figures include production costs, because the NRCC unhelpfully doesn't distinguish between production and placement on its IE reports). All numbers are in thousands.

AZ-01 ($266K)

CA-24 ($77K)
CA-52 ($348K)
Head below the fold for the rest of the ads.

GA-12 ($91K)

IA-01 ($144K)
IA-02 ($107K)
IA-03 ($75K)
IL-13 ($96K)
IL-17 ($317K)
KY-06 ($61K)
MI-01 ($137K)
NC-07 ($161K)
NC-08 ($204K)
NY-18 ($376K)
NY-19 ($394K)
NY-24 ($109K)
OH-06 ($137K)
PA-12 ($107K) — apparently a re-up of an existing buy

TX-23 ($191K)

UT-04 ($162K)
WI-07 ($51K) — apparently a re-up of an existing buy

WI-08 ($75K)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I thought those were real longshot races for Team Red.

    Male, 22, -4.75/-6.92, born and raised TN-05, now WI-02, remorseless supporter of Walker's recall. Pocan for Congress and Baldwin for Senate!

    Both Allen West and David Rivera need a little help. Maybe not West (R-real angry black man) as much, but surely Rivera (R-waiting for indictment). Surprised neither is on the list.

    to refute the claim that spending $800B to hire Americans caused the unemployment rate to go up, and cause American jobs to move to China?  The NRCC must be counting on another Great Wave Of Stupid to wash over this county like it did in 2010.  And most of these are districts that Obama won, and is expected to win again.

  •  They are all so scary sounding. (0+ / 0-)

    Especially the Leonard Boswell one. "The world is going to end if so and so is re/elected!"

    Farm boy who hit the city to go to college, WI-03 (home, voting), WI-02 (college), -6.00, -3.54, I finally get a chance to do something my parents have done for years- vote against Tommy Thompson!! Tammy Baldwin for US Senate!!!!!

  •  CA-24: that's it? That's all they've got? (0+ / 0-)

    This is a preach-to-the-choir ad. It's not going to fire anyone up beyond the core Republican base. Has all the key features: Lois Capps voted for Obamacare, trillion dollars cost out of your taxpayer pocket, lots of grainy B&W photos that enhance her age, etc. (I think Lois is beautiful, but then I've entered my sixth decade too, so...)

    To a large extent this district has an educated population with very few undecided voters. This ad isn't going to change anyone's mind.

    Meanwhile, Capps' latest ad works well--hitting Maldonado's $4M unpaid tax bill, shot of him in the pilot's seat of his private plane, a graphic of a IRS court summons, an unflattering shot of Maldonado standing next to Gov Arnold after he enabled the tax-raising bill in Sacto, and a great tag line at the end "won't pay his taxes but voted to raise yours". I've had two friends comment to me about the ad in the last day.
