Close your eyes for a minute and fast forward to October. And imagine yourself sitting in a Charlotte hotel room watching TV. And this ad comes on: “Kay Hagan voted for Obamacare, a law whose rollout was so botched that a million people decided to not even sign up for health coverage. And the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office says Obamacare will cost America 2 million jobs. Kay Hagan voted wrong. Now it’s time to vote her out.” That’s a VERY tough hit on any Democratic incumbent who voted for the Affordable Care Act.
…RUN THAT PUPPY. Run a version in every state with a Democratic incumbent. It’s not the Holy Grail, but as written it’s danged useable. I might suggest we also try a version that ends with If you like your Senator, you can keep your Senator… but that’s just me.
Thanks, Chris Cillizza!
