Washington (CNN) National Republicans will begin airing a new 30 second commercial this week in Rep. John Spratt's congressional district, criticizing the South Carolina Democrat for his role as House Budget Committee chairman.
The National Republican Congressional Committee is airing the political ad with the hope of pressuring Spratt to choose retirement over running for a 15th term to the House.

The press called it "the most fiscally irresponsible budget in the history of the federal government."
And John Spratt wrote it. Spratt is Nancy Pelosi's budget chairman .and the Spratt budget has a trillion dollar deficit.
And Spratt's the architect of legislation Democrats may use to ram through a government takeover of health care.
Call John Spratt. Tell him to represent South Carolina and NOT Nancy Pelosi.

PPP polling will be releasing a poll this week regarding Spratt.
Re: PPP poll on this district coming out this week, I expect Spratt could still be up. I’m hopeful but I really have no idea whether his constituents are ready to turn on him. I’ve seen plenty of SC rednecks sporting Spratt bumper stickers on their trucks.
There was an article in the local Rock Hill paper a few weeks ago where Spratt announced that he was indeed running for re-election. Of course, that was before Brown.
This is def. a winnable seat for us.
Spratt has Parkinson’s Disease, but that is very hush hush. U.S. Rep. Parker Griffith was telling people about that weeks before he switched parties.
Griffith said this on Nov. 18, 2009 at an event at Johnny’s Half Shell in D.C.
Tie him to Nazi Pelosi again and again. Make him practically married to her!!
From your keyboard....
Griffith needs to make his bones by exposing all the rat secrets he knows. He dled voter data off the state rat website on his way out (they demanded it be “returned” lol), that was a good start. He should get loud about Spratt if he’s really sick.
Regardless of the lead, if Spratt is polling between 50 and 55%, he’s got a race. If he polls less than 50%, he’s in the race of his life.
Spratt has now admitted/announced he has the disease.
