Florida reps face gas attacks

The DCCC earlier this month unveiled plans to go after a group of Florida Republicans for voting for a GOP-pushed budget blueprint that would overhaul Medicare while slashing trillions in spending over the next decade. The effort was to include canvassing, phone banks and the gas station ads.

Meantime, the RNCC continues to attack Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, and recently paid for a robocall that states, "You feel the disastrous effects of Kathy Castor's policies every day as gas prices go up, your grocery bill gets higher, you see more foreclosure signs pop up in your neighborhood and more Americans feel uneasy about their jobs."
