New NRCC ad targets Malinowski on rising prices

Democratic congressman one of 15 Houses members nationally to be targeted with latest digital ad

The National Republican Congressional Committee is up with a new digital ad that targets Rep.  Tom Malinowski (D-Ringoes) by tagging him with the increasing cost of everything from “gas to groceries.”

The ad, “Sticker Shock,” is airing in 15 congressional districts across the U.S. where Republicans think a Democratic House member might be vulnerable in 2022.

The NRCC did not disclose how much they are spending on the digital ad.

Malinowski, who was re-elected last year by just 1% of the vote, faces a rematch with Republican Tom Kean, Jr., the minority leader of the New Jersey State Senate.

In New Jersey, the ad is running only in the 7th district.

Republicans cited a recent NRCC poll suggesting that 70% of voters in battleground congressional districts are concerned about rising prices, especially groceries and food.

“Inflation is a tax on every single American and is a direct result of Democrats’ reckless spending,” said Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minnesota), the NRCC chairman.  “We are going to ensure voters know that Democrats are responsible for the higher costs they are paying for just about everything.”
