Democratic group focuses TV ad on West, Rivera



Democracy For America enters the class wars with this TV ad it says will run nationally during Sunday talk shows and in the districts of select congressmen, starting with Florida Reps. Allen West and David Rivera. UPDATE: The group's news release made it sound like it's a given the ad will run in Florida. We asked for details and are told the group will have to raise the money and is first focusing on the national buy. "Since we are a grassroots group, we have to raise it first, then do the buy. Sorry, if that seems misleading. We do want to target those two districts and add on more as we fundraise," spokeswoman Levana Layendecker said.
