Keller a target this week, Diaz-Balarts, Ros-Lehtinen, perhaps not so much

National Democrats announced Monday they'll continue to run radio ads targeting GOP'ers for voting against expanding a popular children's health insurance program.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said the fourth round of the "Putting Children First" campaign will begin Tuesday with radio spots, text messaging and e-mail.

"Across the country Republicans are feeling the heat for supporting President Bush instead of the health care for America's kids," said Van Hollen, D-Maryland.

Miami's three Republican members, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart were targeted by radio ads two weeks ago - the first time the national party had spent money in the districts - but they didn't make the cut this time around.

All but 2 of Florida's 16 Republicans voted against the expansion, but only Rep. Ric Keller, R-Orlando, is on this week's target list.
