The National Republican Congressional Committee is on the air today with its first television ad in the 1st District U.S. House race, charging that Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter is a “rubber stamp” for House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team.
The ad, entitled “100 percent,” is being aired in the Manchester and Boston broadcast markets, as well as cable television in Manchester, the NRCC said. The NRCC said the buy is $791,000 for this week.
Shea-Porter is facing challenger Frank Guinta for the third time since 2010.
In the ad, a narrator says, “Carol Shea-Porter votes with Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership on every major piece of legislation. For Obamacare, for the failed stimulus, and more.
“When asked why, she says, quote, ‘they’re 100% right.’”
The ad charges she voted for higher taxes 41 times “and voted to raise the debt ceiling six times while the national debt has more than doubled since she first took office.”
The ad calls Shea-Porter “too extreme for New Hampshire.”
The New Hampshire Journal is seeking comment from the Shea-Porter campaign and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
