The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced Thursday it will run radio ads targeting U.S. Rep. Andy Barr for his efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
The ads are the first of the 2018 congressional campaign and indicate that national Democrats view Barr as a vulnerable incumbent. Central Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District is one of 11 selected by the DCCC for this round of advertising.
“This signals confidence in the candidates they expect to field,” said Stephen Voss, a political science professor at the University of Kentucky.
