The Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is cutting back its Philadelphia television ad buys until the final week of the campaign which starts Oct. 26. The plan originally called for heavy advertising for the last two weeks.
The DCCC is the national campaign arm for Democrat U.S. House Candidates.
The market which includes New Jersey and northern Delaware has numerous endangered Democrat seats including Pa7 where former federal prosecutor Republican Pat Meehan is fighting Democrat state Rep. Bryan Lentz for the seat being giving up by Democrat Joe Sestak; Pa8 where Democrat incumbent Patrick Murphy is down in the polls to Republican challenger Mike Fitzpatrick; Pa13 where Democrat incumbent Allyson Schwartz has found herself wary over-the-shoulder glances at Republican Dee Adock; and NJ3 where incumbent Democrat John Adler is taking desperate measures against Republican challenger John Runyan.
And of course in Delaware there is a Republican-held seat being given up by Mike castle which is contested by Republican Republican Glen Urquhart and Democrat Lt. Gov. John Carney.
