A new TV ad paid for by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) attacks Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton) for voting to attack health care coverage and remove protections for pre-existing conditions.
The DCCC says a “six-figure ad buy” will begin running on New York network television today.
“This ad shines a bright light on Congressman Lance’s record of attacking his constituents’ health care,” said DCCC Spokesman Evan Lukaske. “Congressman Lance voted sixty times to attack affordable health care and to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions like diabetes or asthma. Lance represents the worst of Washington, and New Jersey voters are ready for change.”
Lance and his campaign have strongly denied this allegations.
The race between Lance and Democrat Tom Malinowski, a former Assistant U.S. Secretary of State under President Obama, is within the margin of error, according to independent polls.
The script: “52 percent of people in New Jersey have a pre-existing condition. But Leonard Lance doesn’t seem to care if they have access to affordable healthcare. Lance voted over 60 times to attack and undermine affordable healthcare. And he’s voted repeatedly to weaken protections for people with pre-existing conditions, like diabetes or asthma. And each time he’s taken one of those votes, Congressman Leonard Lance voted to hurt one of us.”
