American Crossroads Tweaks DCCC

At Politico, Ben Smith reports:

The Republican group American Crossroads released this morning, with some amusement, the sums that the DCCC is putting down on an ad hitting 25 Republican freshmen on Medicare.

The numbers are all nominal, and range from $40 to $400. Dollars, the group noted, not thousands.

"For the DCCC’s next major initiative, we hear they plan to hand out balloons and refrigerator magnets in northwestern Pennsylvania," said Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio.

DCCC spokeswoman Jennifer Crider responds: "Unlike Crossroads, we don't take shady secret money so we invest wisely in targeted districts. The initial buy of 15-second radio ads in 25 districts has been placed. Stay tuned for more to come."
