DCCC Going On Air For Shuler, Doubling Down For Spratt
Hotline On Call - National Journal ^ | 10/19/2010 | Jeremy P. Jacobs

The Democratic Congressional Committee has reserved ad buys in Rep. Heath Shuler's (D-N.C.) district for the first time, another sign that the DCCC is having to spend money on incumbents who were previously believed to be safe.

The ad reservations, confirmed by multiple sources tracking ad buys, show that the DCCC is continuing to reevaluate where to spend its resources in the final weeks of the campaign. In addition to Shuler, the DCCC has also increased its ad reservations for House Budget Committee Chair John Spratt (D-S.C.) and Rep. Mike McIntyre's (D-N.C.), both of whom who hold solidly Republican seats that John McCain carried in 2008.

The reservations for Shuler for the final two weeks of the race are significant because Shuler had appeared to be in control of his race against businessman Jeff Miller (R), despite his district's conservative leanings. The DCCC did not plan to air ads here originally, but Shuler has faced a barrage of negative ads from third party groups like Americans for Job Security. The fact that the DCCC is going in here shows that the playing field is still continuing to expand.

Spratt is a 14 term incumbent, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, who should be crushing Mulvaney, a first term State Senator. He's in big trouble, especially if the Dems have to shift funds from other races to try and save him.
