GOP attacks 2014 House Democratic candidates

Deep split among GOP lawmakers to AHCCCS expansionThe National Republican Congressional Committee is getting an early start on its 2014 campaign to keep the GOP in charge of the House.

National and local GOP officials plan to launch a mobile billboard campaign Tuesday targeting Democratic U.S. Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick and Ron Barber for supporting the national health care law.

Kirkpatrick represents a competitive district in northern and eastern Arizona. She served one term in the U.S. House before losing a re-election bid in 2010 to Republican Paul Gosar.

Gosar ran for re-election in a different district in 2012 following redistricting, and Kirkpatrick beat Republican Jonathan Paton in November to return to Congress.

Barber was also elected in November after serving as a former aide to Gabrielle Giffords. Both were wounded in a 2011 mass shooting in Tucson.

    What happened to the target on Sinema? Since her first week in Congress her focus has been on re-election fund raising, including a careful avoidance of anything controversial like gun control, Obamacare, etc. She can only say she is “for” jobs and the middle class so many times before constituents demand something substantive.
