Democrats Grow Desperate in NY-9

From National Journal:

Democrats are showing the clearest sign yet of concern ahead of next Tuesday’s special election in New York’s 9th District – the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is going up on air with an expensive television buy in the campaign’s closing days.

According to buy information obtained by Hotline On Call, the DCCC has made a $483,500 TV ad buy in the district, starting tomorrow through Monday. The broadcast TV buy will not air on September 11, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The Democratic … PAC, House Majority PAC, has also bought advertising time in the district as well…

If blue districts in New York are under threat, then how is the rest of the country going?  The Democrats don’t want to start next week with the loss of a House seat…it would just be too grand a demonstration that their programs are failing and thus it is time to follow a new course.  So, they are pouring in the money – and given the Democrats registration edge, I suspect it will be enough to pull out a win.  But if it winds up close, even if the Democrat wins it will still be a harbinger of what is to come next year.

    Come on GOP’ers throw Mr. Turner some of your hard eaned cash. Maybe if you can make the donkys outspend you 10-1 it might be worth it.

    I was watching one of Frank Luntz’s focus groups in Atlanta after the speech tonight — half Obama voters and half McCain voters. If their reaction to the speech was representative of the nation, NY9 is the least of the Democrats worries.

      Leonard I agree. It does not look good for the donkys. I see a 10 to 15 seat increase in the house for the gop and probably very close to a filibuster proof majority in the senate after the 2012 elections. If only any of that mattered.

        Well, at the very least, it will matter to the extent that the GOP will then be blamed for the crash. Perhaps then we really will see true change back to a responsible, common sense government. Assuming we don’t kill each other first.

    Mark, is this the same add that had a corporate jet theme? The one showing a jet flying around the NYC skyline?

      No silly, that was barry hussein wanting a better look at what his bros did.

        I was asking because the add was pulled by the dccc. It was supposed to start airing on 9-11-2011. Hmm…something about the add with the jet flying around nyc on 9-11-2011 just seemed a bit odd.

        Can’t quite put my finger on it but it will come back.

        I think it had something to do with some of Husseins bros.

    None of this matters. The 2014 midterms will sweep the GOP out for a generation.

      You are right Major it will be a donkyrat landslide. They are busy right now loading up the trunks of thier cars with all those extra votes for alfrankendork. They will come in useful somewhere.
